Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems (ICROS) 

The Purpose of Establishment

institute of control robotics and systems icros
Fostered by mechatronics technology and the technology of the modern 3Cs (computer, communication and control), machines, processes and systems have become more advanced through high levels of automation, intelligence, reliability, precision, and performance. Control, Robotics, and Systems are central to the advancement of modern engineering, and have evolved to the point that they require strong cooperation among industry, academia and laboratories as well as cross-fertilization among many closely related disciplines. To serve these needs, the Institute of Control, Robotics, and Systems (ICROS) was founded in 1994 by the concerted cooperation and efforts of electrical, electronics, mechanical, aerospace, and chemical engineers. Today, ICROS is diligently leading the way at advancing these technologies as well as implementing them in various practical engineering problems.

The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers (KIEE) 

the korean institute of electrical engineers
The Korean Institute of Electrical Engineers(KIEE) is a non-profit professional organization serving electrical engineers in Korea to advance the research and development of Electrical Engineering through the exchange of technology, ideas, and friendship among its members.
The KIEE was founded on July 9, 1947 and is continuously growing.

The Purpose of Establishment

The purpose of establishing KIEE was to have an organization intent on contributing itself to benefiting Korean society by promoting, developing and distributing electrical engineering technologies in accordance with rules and regulations for the establishment of a legal body for public interest

Major Activities:

1. Publication of KIEE bulletin, paper journal and books
2. Study and research
3. Host scientific conferences and lecture meetings
4. Preparation of standards and codes
5. International scientific study exchange
6. Preparation of plans and proposals for technology policy
7. Award meritorious service and promotion of study
