The School of Electrical Engineering of INHA University was founded in 1954 as one of the founding departments of the former "INHA Institute of Technology; IIT. Since its early foundation, the department of Electrical Engineering was one of the major academic courses in Korea in terms of its long history as well as current activities in various fields. Recently, it was restructured to accommodate the criteria for "Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea; ABEEK. Currently, 12 nominated professors are serving for both undergraduate and graduate programs. In the undergraduate program, excellent engineering courses are provided to the students for the purpose of promoting ingenious experts for industrial and R&D fields. In the graduate program, advanced courses in theories and technologies are provided for fundamental and applied science & technology in the related fields. The electrical power industry and access to electricity are fundamental for the development of nations, and therefore, has long been a primary area of study within the department and its degree program. As Korea succeeded in developing its modern industry, the department has been expanded to include subjects covering other key industries, namely, computerized control & robotics, electronic components and displays, and information and telecommunication technologies. As new needs have arisen, the academic program has been restructured to meet those needs, thus providing students with the most current and comprehensive education possibilities.

Intensified graduation examination and graduation thesis
The electrical engineering curriculum provides a diverse range of subjects with which the students are educated on basic theories and modern technologies in electrical engineering. Since 2005, the curriculum has been certified by ABEEK and designated as the INHA Electrical Engineering Program. In the first and second years, students take MSC (math, science, and computer) courses in addition to foundation courses in electrical engineering including cultural courses. In the third and fourth years, students study advanced subjects in the three major areas of Electrical Energy & Power Electronics/Computerized Controls & Robotics/Electronic Devices & Displays combined with various STS (Selective Track System) courses. As a mean to gain practical field experience, students utilize a vast array of state-of-the-art facilities, such as computer labs, basic experimental labs, electrical machine lab, analog & digital circuit lab and high-voltage lab. In addition, forth year students must select a professor's lab where they conduct two-semester long experiments for a compulsory Bachelor of Electrical Engineering thesis.
- Minimum credits requirements for Graduation : Cultural subjects-18 credits / MSC subjects-30 credits / Major subjects-60 credits / Total 140 credits
Vision after Graduation
In every year almost 100% of the graduates find employment in domestic industries, research institutes and SOC areas, which makes for a wide spectrum of career options for graduates in conventional areas of electronics/automation industry, automobile industry, civil and construction engineering, ship construction as well as in the modern high-tech areas of Information Technology and Digital Media & Broadcasting.
