The Graduate School of Design


The Graduate School of Design was established in 1982 to cultivate female leaders to join the workforce and contribute to the national industrial, environmental, and cultural progress of Korea. We strive to introduce both new and established theories to our students to provide a research-oriented environment where students can explore aspects of design and modeling.
