    SKKU definitely stands out in the Asian University Rankings, carried out by the UK’s well-known QS University Rankings and the Chosun Ilbo. SKKU went up four spots in the Asian General Rankings. In particular, we placed 17th for graduate reputation, up from 21st last year. This shows that SKKU graduates have been highly valued by corporate human resource directors. “This is thanks to an increase in students completing dual degrees and fostering the right talented people in industry-university cooperative specialised majors such as the Semiconductor Systems Engineering major,” says SKKU. Last summer, 1,737 students including 1,057 students from foreign universities participated in the International Summer Semester (ISS) held at SKKU.
