First collection of students for undergraduate courses 2007
If you want to be a global leader, come to KAIST! 640 students to be selected in the first collection KAIST is an institute of science and technology belonging to the Ministry of Science and Technology, not to the Ministry of Education. KAIST, having executed student selection without examination since 1992, selects students with great talent in science and mathematics by early admission, not by the scores of the nationwide college entrance examination, which is the prototype of on-demand collection executed by ordinary universities. As such, though similar to on-demand collection in fall semester by the other universities in its characteristics, KAIST’s first collection of students for undergraduate courses 2007 is considerably different in that the number of students to be selected is 640, 90% of its entrance quota (700 students). High school graduates and high school students to graduate in February 2007 are eligible for admission, and second year high school students also can apply for admission under the condition of specific examination. The process of the first collection is composed of two steps. The first step is the examination of submitted documents. A certified score of English by one of TEPS, TOEFL, and TOEIC must be submitted, and those students having no certified score must express their intention to take a special TEPS test through internet application. In the examination of submitted documents, in-depth examination on high school record, certified score of English, cover letter, teacher’s letter of recommendation, evidence on student’s excellence, etc. is carried out. The second step is an interview. Around 900 candidates, 1.4 times larger than the number of final selectors (640 students), are selected as candidates for interview through the first step (examination of submitted documents), and among them, top 70% of the candidates (around 450 candidates) will take an interview for personality examination and the other 30% will take an interview for specialty examination. The interview for specialty examination will test on two subjects - Mathematics and Science. Mathematics is a compulsory subject and Science is tested by one subject among Physics, Biology, and Chemistry. The preparation time for each subject is 30 minutes and the interview time is 20 minutes. The coverage of the interview for specialty examination is Math I, II, and infinitesimal calculus for Mathematics, and Science I and II for Science with priority given to the 7th step of education. <Interview with Dongsu Kwon, Manager of KAIST Admission Team> Q> What do you think of the features of KAIST entrance exam? A> A fact that students do not have to make a separate preparation for the admission to KAIST. Just studying what they are interested in and exhibiting the consequence itself will do. It is possible to tell those students who’ve studied with interests with mere documents and interview. KAIST entrance exam is a designed system to carry out regular education faithfully, not a system to select a small number of well-prepared students. Q> What type of students does KAIST want? A> Students having evident fields of interest, students having authentic passion, and students studying voluntarily. I think KAIST is the best place for students who have passion in Math and Science and eager to be a great scholar to pave their way for the further during the college period of four years. Q> The degree of importance of the certified score of English (one of TEPS, TOEFL, and TOEIC) for the admission to KAIST A> In KAIST, many classes use English textbooks, therefore, students are required to possess specific level of English abilities. However, since English can be improved in the campus, English score is not an absolute criterion and can be supplemented by other merits of candidates. However, it’s evident that candidates having high English score take priority in the exam. Q> Is it true that the number of graduates of non-science high school is increasing? A> Their rate hits about 30%. This results from considerably improved level of graduates from non-science high school, compared to their previous. Particularly, as KAIST has been widely known through TV drama and so on, a great number of top-class students from non-science high school apply for KAIST. These factors are considered to raise the current rate of graduates from non-science high school in KAIST, and there is no disparity in examination between graduates from science high school and non-science high school.

Professor Sejin Kwon develops thruster for small satellite
- World’s first application of high-performance liquid propellant to small satellite thruster - Show about four times higher thrust performance than the cold gas thruster of University of Surrey, the state-of-the-art technology in the field of small satellite - Expect a considerable contribution to the extension of the lifespan and mission range of small satellites The team of Professor Sejin Kwon (Department of Aerospace Engineering in KAIST/ President Nam Pyo Suh) and Space Solution Inc. (President Jaehun Lee) have jointly developed a micro thruster for small satellite motion-control. Kwon"s team has succeeded in developing an integrated thruster which can be mounted on a satellite by integrating catalyst reactor and propellant-supplying system, which are the core technologies of small satellite thruster system. For the first time in the world, Kwon’s team employs a high-performance liquid propellant to the thruster. In the thruster, liquid-state hydrogen peroxide is dissolved into vapor and oxygen at the catalytic layer to emit a huge amount of heat. And, the emitted heat is converted into the kinetic energy of the gas to produce a propulsive force. This thruster can perform the motion-control of a several tens-kilogram satellite with a propulsive force of less than one Newton and shows about four times higher thrust performance than the cold gas thruster of University of Surrey, who possesses the state-of-the-art technologies in the field of small satellites. Professor Kwon said, “Although University of Surrey has also tried to develop a similar system, it’s not yet solved the problem on catalytic reactor bed. I expect this thruster will considerably contribute to the extension of the lifespan and mission range of scientific small satellites. Also, this thruster can be employed for the attitude control of the upper end of the launch vehicle, which is now being developed by the Korean Aerospace Research Institute (KARI).” <Thruster module for small satellite application>
Professor Chan Beum Park, requested for joint international research by a German biotechnology enterprise.
- Bitop AG (Germany) requested a joint development of medicines for Alzheimer’s disease - The meaning of the financial support by European enterprise to the research result of domestic university. Professor Chan Beum Park (Department of Materials Science and Engineering in KAIST/ President Nam Pyo Suh) has been entrusted with a joint international research for the development of medicines for Alzheimer’s disease from Bitop AG, German biotechnology enterprise. KAIST recently agreed with Bitop AG to cooperate for a research program pursuing the development of inhibitors that inhibit the formation of plaque relevant to amyloid diseases like Alzheimer’s disease. Based on this agreement, KAIST will be provided with a financial support of sixty thousands Euro (about 74 million won) from Bitop AG. Professor Park will perform the screening of inhibitors, which are the core of the research, and KAIST will share patent rights from the research with Bitop AG. It is known that various degenerative nerve diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, mad cow disease, and so on arise mainly from the accumulation of pathological protein plaque termed amyloid, and environmental stress accelerates the diseases. So far, no effective remedy has been developed for amyloid diseases. Recently, the use of chemicals inhibiting the formation of amyloid has been raised as a potential remedy. Natural small stress molecules extracted from microbes growing in extreme environments like volcanic region on the bottom of the deep sea, etc. are gaining attention as an amyloid inhibitor. Professor Park found out for the first time in the world that Anti-stress materials are effective in inhibiting the formation of amyloid plaque and published that fact in several renowned European scientific journals. After that, Professor Park was requested by Bitop AG for a joint research and has studied for the development of medicines for Alzheimer’s disease using various kinds of Anti-stress materials. Professor Park said, “I’d like to grant a highly valuable meaning to this entrustment since it implies that European enterprises perceive the value of the research result by domestic universities and hope to promote research and development by providing practical financial support, etc. I wish this time’s entrustment will be a momentum to advance Korea’s research level one step higher through active joint researches with enterprises or institutes in U.S. and Europe as well as Bitop AG.” Bitop AG is a German enterprise that produces various Anti-stress materials coming from extreme-loving microbes. Currently, Anti-stress materials are being sold mainly as protein and cell protectants, cosmetic additives, health supplement, etc. Anti-stress materials extracted from microbes well growing in extreme environment of one hundred centigrade or more are expected to perform a role of inhibitors that inhibit the formation of amyloid plaque, the main factor of stress-related degenerative nerve diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, etc. Such Anti-stress materials are gaining attention as a future medicine for Alzheimer’s disease, etc.
