During the first year of KAIST undergraduate program, all students are not classified into specific department. Students can choose their own department and major in their second year. Further explanation and procedures can be found on KAIST admission homepage.
Since there is no quota limit to the number of students in a department, students can freely choose any major they wish and may change their major later. Academic advisors will be assigned once the students choose their major, and can be changed in the future. Before graduation, students must receive credits on undergraduate research course , but this can be replaced with intern experience(Students having a double major are exempt). In Materials Science and Engineering department, we provide various events for students, such as department briefing and Strawberry Party.
