Dr. Sung-Man Chang, Founder of KIT
The College That Pioneers the Future
Kyungnam College of Information & Technology
A hearty welcome to all visitors of KIT, and may the glory of God be with you all.
Based upon the Christian spirit, Kyungnam College of Information & Technology (KIT) was founded as a part of the Dongseo Education Foundation in 1965 in order to nurture talented individuals through building students' character and providing education in state-of-the art scientific technologies.
Starting with only 19 students, KIT was a history of challenge and service fostering professionals in Korea.
The founding philosophy of KIT aims to cultivate upright individuals well-balanced in knowledge, mind, and will through intellectual, emotional, and volitional education. In particular, based upon the Christian spirit of loving God and our neighbors, KIT is concentrating on building the students' character through the teachings of Christ.
Presently, KIT is continuously undergoing remarkable changes and development. It started out as Dongseo Christian Vocational School, then became Kyungnam Junior Engineering College, and finally developed into Kyungnam College of Information & Technology (KlT).
Because we have not refrained from challenges, but rather, have shown passion throughout our 52 years, KIT was able to overcome its limit as a regional college and develop into the best junior college in the nation.
Today KIT is evaluated as one of the best among 138 junior colleges in the nation in all areas, including the employment rate of the graduates, industrial-academic cooperation, educational service, and substantial quality of education. Of these, KIT particularly places emphasis upon industrial-academic cooperation which is the most important element for education in junior colleges that focus on vocational training. By focusing on industrial-academic cooperation based education, KIT has produced some 100,000 graduates who are playing pivotal roles in our community.
The educational results and traditions of the last years will serve as a foundation for the future of KIT. KIT will continue to develop, focusing on the present rather than dwelling upon the past, and pioneering the future rather than being content with the present.
KIT is now preparing to embrace the future by advancing into the global stage. Based upon the Christian spirit, KIT will strive to become the cradle for global talent that teaches servant leadership.
