DGIST is a research-oriented university founded by the Korean government to benefit society through the development and advancement of science and engineering. DGIST began as a research institution in 2004 and has since grown dramatically, opening a graduate program in 2011 and an undergraduate program in 2014.

DGIST offers Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral Degree programs. Currently, the graduate school offers degree programs in seven departments: Physics & Chemistry, Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, Robotics & Mechatronics Engineering, Energy Science & Engineering, Brain Sciences, New Biology, and Interdisciplinary Studies (Majors: Interdisciplinary Engineering, Artificial Intelligence). All graduate classes are delivered in English.

On the other hand, the College of Transdisciplinary Studies (CTS), which is the undergraduate school of DGIST, does not have any specific departments. All undergraduate students study basic sciences and engineering subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Life Science, Mechanical Engineering, Material Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, and Chemical Engineering, along with carefully selected liberal arts courses, physical training, and music during their first two years. From their 3rd and 4th years, students take more advanced science and engineering courses according to their interests and needs. In addition, junior and senior students conduct group research projects. Currently, most undergraduate courses are conducted in Korean. However, starting in 2026, the entire course will be conducted in English.

DGIST is a member of K-STAR, the Korean Universities for Science and Technology and Advanced Research. The members of K-STAR are five leading science and engineering universities in Korea: DGIST, KAIST, GIST, UNIST, and POSTECH.

The Center for International Affairs is responsible for cooperating with international institutions, coordinating student exchange programs with partner universities. The center are running inbound and outbound student mobility programs, providing administrative support to international members, and promoting DGIST globally.
