Professor Man-Sung Im, head of the Nuclear and Quantum Engineering Department at KAIST and Director Waclaw Gudowski of the Physics Department at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH), Sweden, agreed to establish a dual master’s degree program in the field of nuclear and quantum engineering, and signed the agreement on July 4, 2016 at the Faculty Club on the KAIST campus.
Following the first joint degree program in mechanical engineering in 2014, this is the second dual degree program created between the two universities.
Under the agreement, which will be effective beginning in the 2016 fall semester, KAIST and KTH will exchange students, confer students dual degrees when they earn the required number of credits, and support financial aid for exchange students.
Dean Im said, “The two schools have enjoyed an excellent reputation in nuclear and quantum engineering, and offering students more opportunities to study abroad at the other university will produce synergistic effects for the growth of the two schools' education and research.”
Founded in 1827, KTH is regarded one of the most prestigious universities in Northern Europe.

About 150 undergraduate students from five leading science and technology (S&T) universities in Asia met at the KAIST campus to attend the E-Olympics on August 7-9, 2014. The E-Olympics began as a student exchange conference held under the Asian Science and Technology Pioneering Institutes of Research and Education (ASPIRE) League, which offers a variety of events, such as workshops, sports matches, lab visits, special lectures, and art performances, to promote academic and research collabo2014-08-11
