College of Engineering


Welcome to the College Engineering at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST). The mission of the College of Engineering is to develop the future leaders of the DPR Korea, who will work to build a strong IT infrastructure, which will help to develop a prosperous and sustainable environment, by educating students with both fundamental and advanced techniques in electronics and computer science. In order to achieve our mission, we strive to implement the following specific objectives:

  1. Strong Foundation. Offering a systematic and thorough coverage of fundamental courses in electrical engineering and computer science, with emphasis on a strong theoretical background.
  2. Adaptive Curriculum. Adapting the academic curriculum to stay current in the latest technologies as well as the needs of the people of the DPR Korea. This will require research to understand the pressing needs of the Korean people, as well as the latest technologies that can be used to address those needs. Finally, offering advanced electives, which are relevant to today’s state-of-the-art technologies.
  3. Application-driven Research. Developing a strong application-based research program, which is tightly integrated with the educational curriculum. Research should seek to provide solutions to the most pressing needs of the Korean people.

College of Engineering Undergraduate Courses

During the first year of major study all College of Engineering students take a common set of cross-major core courses.

The last semester of study is devoted to a practicum experience culminating in a senior thesis presentation.
