As the era of the "fourth industrial revolution" dawns, Seoul Cyber University is working to create diverse majors and education programs with a focus on artificial intelligence.

Established in 2000, Seoul Cyber University is an online university in Korea with the largest number of enrolled students as of 2023, according to data from the government. The university has seven campuses across the nation, including in cities such as Seoul, Incheon and Busan. Composed of 11 departments and 43 majors, the school holds the record for having the most education programs among virtual universities in the country.

Recognizing the importance of drones and the robotics industry -- key pillars of the fourth industrial revolution -- Seoul Cyber University launched this year a major aimed at the convergence of studies in drones and robotics to nurture experts in both fields. The school has also set the year 2024 as the first year to innovate education in engineering through AI.

In addition, the virtual university aims to expand its global skillsets by co-developing content for courses and conducting joint research with universities worldwide, such as Gnessin State Musical College and Moscow State Academic Music College in Russia and California State University San Bernardino in the US.

Seoul Cyber University has been given a grade of "A" for three consecutive years in the assessment of virtual universities conducted by South Korea's Education Ministry since 2020.
