Engineers must exercise creativity and embrace challenges in order to solve challenges faced by humanity in the 21st century. Engineering technology, if driven by creativity and a love for challenge, produces innovative solutions that contribute to advancements for humanity. It is entrepreneurship that makes such innovations possible.

K-School was established in 2016, with funding of 3.8 billion won from the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning, for the purpose of integrating entrepreneurship in KAIST’s specialized engineering curriculum.

K-School provides undergraduates with theoretical education on entrepreneurship and business under a minor in science-based entrepreneurship. To instill entrepreneurship in all students of KAIST, it offers educational programs and seminars through mandatory general courses and activity units.
