Although medical robotics is relatively at an early stage compared to industrial robots, medical robotic technology has drawn attention as upcoming promising technologies to lead the economy. The need of these medical robots are expected to be increased more through an engagement and utilization in various fields such as: life assistant robot for daily life, work assistant robot for improving work efficiency, and medical & health assistant for the elderly and disabled.
The Department of Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering converges conventional engineering subjects -Mechanical, Electrical, Electronics Engineering, Mechatronics, and etc. - with advanced technology fields such as Biotechnology (BT), Information Technology (IT) and Micro/Nano technology (MT/NT). The department also conducts various cooperative researches with oversea universities, research institutes, and industries, expecting more synergy from diverse view points for innovation, efficiency, and production engineering.
