Student exchange programs
Students exchange programs provide opportunities for our students to study at a university overseas for one or two semesters. The courses taken there are counted equivalently towards graduation at KAIST (that is, credits taken overseas are transferred to KAIST). KAIST has arrangements for student exchange with many universities around the world.
With a dual degree program, a student may receive two degrees: one from KAIST, and one from another university. Currently our department has four such programs:
A joint degree program is similar to a dual degree program, with the difference that students receive only one degree that has the name of two institutions on it. Currently our department has one joint degree program, a Joint Ph.D. in Computer Science with Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST).
