A Complimentary Direction of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Department of Military Science in Universities

제4차 산업혁명과 민간대학 군사학과 교육체계 보완방향

  • Published : 2018.12.31


It has been fifteen years since military science was introduced into private and public universities since 2004. The department focuses on the improvements of the South Korean Army quality based on the Korean Army's traits including: an increase of power in the armed force and operations through research, development, and the expansion of a cooperation between the public (civilians) and military. Approximately, four hundred students from various universities in the military science department graduate in order to become an officer. The fourth industrial revolution causes structural transformation to our lives. Through the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI,) war and the military as a whole will be altered significantly particularly with regard to efficiency. Nevertheless, it is important for us to train officers in creative ways so that they can deal with situations where machines will be unable to handle situations. Considering this change in our lives, it is necessary for the military science departments to change the way to teach and train their students. In order to accomplish this goal, we need to introduce a method called "Flipped Learning" and during the process all the members need to participate and communicate in an interactive way. By doing this, the military science departments will play an important role by improving human resource in terms of military and national security.
