College of Engineering, Hanyang University has its own education program than generals of Hanyang University. For example, : ABEEK (Certification of Engineering Education) and Project for graduation. The education policy down below is for only in college of engineering. It also has another education program according to general program of Hanyang University, like exchange student program with MIT[2]


ABEEK is Certification of Engineering Education in Korea. Students in College of Engineering can take this course for option. Some companies, like Samsung, asks applicants whether they took ABEEK course.

Joint degree Program[edit]

College of Engineering and College of Engineering Science have joint degree(Bachelor) program with Illinois Institute of Technology and Temple University.[3] They send about 35 ~ 60 students to IIT

Project for graduation[edit]

Most of Departments in College of Engineering has certification program for graduation like "Capstone Design", "Engineering Project".[4] Students who take this program designs their own portfolio and it will be estimated by professors. Some students said this program as "Graduation Project"(The official name of this program is not unified). Students must pass this program or postpone their graduation until passing it.


Hanyang University College of engineering affects a lot in South Korea society. It was the oldest engineering college in South Korea. And it has been called as an "Engineer Academy".[5] Also there are many alumni in Korea society. Chung Ju-yung, formal president of Hyundai Group, said about Hanyang University College of Engineering on official speech.[6] It publishes the SCI journal named Journal of Ceramic Processing Research[7]
