This research aims to analyze core competencies of engineering students in Korea as well as to explore the application plans of extracurricular
activities(hereafter, ECA) and programs in order to enhance their core competencies. Participation in ECA has long been recognized
as having positive benefits and impacts upon students. To achieve the purpose of this study, first, we investigated whether there were
differences between core competencies in undergraduates according to majors, gender and grades. ‘Core competencies’, first introduced
in management theory as ‘core competency' can be defined as personal attributes or underlining characteristics, capable of delivering
a role or job. ‘Core competencies’ has received particular attention in recent years and there has been much related research (domestic
and foreign) combined with diverse factors. However, few studies have addressed the question on engineering student’s core competencies
as well as the ways of their enhancement. This study was conducted with a total of 286 students, and core competencies have been
measured online, through K-CESA. Our findings show that firstly, there were significant differences in undergraduate students’ core
competencies by majors. Engineering students scored significantly lower in core competencies overall. Second, there was no significant
difference in students’ core competencies by gender and grade. Third, there was a significant correlation among components of core
competencies. Finally, there was a significant correlation between core competencies and grades(GPA, grades in major subject & liberal
arts subject), rather levels in the correlation were low. Furthermore, the study suggested that the appropriate application of extracurricular
activities would enhance core competencies of students.

This study is an analysis of the process of the discovery of the DNA double helix structure from an engineering literacy education
perspective. The explanation of the DNA double helix structure by James Watson and Francis Crick in 1952 is a well-known scientific
episode. The process is also a combination of various incidents that can frequently happen in competitive engineering research and
development situations. Therefore, the process of the discovery of the DNA structure is a remarkable event that can cover all subjects,
such as engineering and ethics, research ethics, communication between researchers, engineering and leadership, engineering and teamwork,
and engineering and women. This paper focuses on analyzing the research ethics issues associated with Rosalind Franklin and comparing
and analyzing the three teams that were very close to the discovery of the DNA structure. By looking at why the Watson and Crick
team got the final answer instead of the Linus Pauling’s team or the Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin’s team, the virtues of
the technology development process that should be taught in engineering literacy education will be naturally presented.

In many universities, the Capstone Design course aims to educate creativity, teamwork and leadership, and ultimately aims to cultivate
practitioners with practical ability required in the industry. Since the introduction of capstone design as a regular course, it has spread
not only to engineering but also to the humanities and social sciences. A typical capstone design is usually carried out within a
limited range of schedules and budgets within the scope of a major and a subject. In the case of a special-purpose capstone design,
it is necessary to find out excellent items aiming at start-up and commercialization at an early stage, It contributes to the achievement
of international convention participation, start-up and commercialization. The teaching styles of capstone design such as multidisciplinary
capstone design, fusion capstone design, and global capstone design are developed and operated in various ways. Depending on
each type, objectives, curriculum, scope of participation, operation method, performance and so on. In the case of capstone design,
it is contributing to increase the achievements such as participation in international conventions, establishment of business and
commercialization by early detection of excellent items aiming at start-up and commercialization, development and establishment
of support process. Technological and Humanities Convergence Capstone Design Moel is named as the process of designing a four-level
idea called "Idea Factory-based Technology-Humannities Fusion Capstone Design Process", and it is used to generate ideas, elaborate
ideas, advanced ideas, and commercialization.

The low growth rate and the high youth unemployment rate that our society faces have already come to our country core problem.
Today, as we enter the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the social atmosphere that urgently needs to solve the problem of youth
employment has become imminent, and the importance of university-industry cooperation is increasingly emphasized. In this paper,
in this paper, we explore the process of how to develop fusion multifaceted curriculum centered on the Konkuk University College
of Healing Bio Sciences Consortium Focus, which is developed and operated through literature review and Delphi questionnaire, The
purpose of this study is to propose the conditions for enhancing educational suitability and the expansion of interdisciplinary convergence

The purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship among self-efficacy, engineering interest and social support on adjustment
to college and learning persistence in first year engineering college students. The participants were 74 freshman of engineering college
students, SPSS and SmartPLS were used to analyze the data. The key findings revealed were as follows: First, self-efficacy, engineering
interest and social support had a significant influence on adjustment to college. Second, engineering interest and adjustment to college
had a significant influence on learning persistence. This research suggested the implications for adjustment to college and learning
persistence in engineering education.

This article examined the effects of self-reflecting journal writing in speaking class on academic performance of science and engineering
students. To assess the effect, 27 science and engineering students from the “Speech and Life” class were asked to keep a self-reflecting
journal. Pre and post-intervention surveys were conducted, followed by the analysis of learning effect and satisfaction. In addition to
the pre and post-intervention surveys, an additional survey on speaking ability was conducted at the same time and the change of the
students’ ability was assessed. Results showed that after writing self-reflection journals, participants’ learning effect and satisfaction
has increased, and their speaking performance was also improved.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between instructional strategies applied to engineering courses and students'
learning strategies. As a result, students perceived that the application principle was the most applied and then the problem-centered
principle was applied to engineering courses. In addition, the students showed that rehearsal strategies are the most used in courses.
The most important instructional principle in this study was the problem-centered principle, and the higher the degree of application
of problem-centered principle in engineering course, the students were likely to use more deep learning strategies such as elaboration
and organization strategy, critical thinking strategy, and metacognitive strategy.
