The purpose of this study is to investigate case studies and industry needs for convergence education in the fields of electronics, software, and automobiles, which are the technical foundations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Through the literature review, the convergence education programs focusing on electronics, software, and automobile were derived. The areas were validated by the experts review who consisted of three industry experts and professors in the relevant fields. Domestic and foreign curriculum were investigated to understand the current state of technical convergence education in each field. Industry needs survey for technical convergence education was conducted in cooperation with the Sector Council of Industrial Resources. Research instruments consisted of three parts: needs for technical convergence education, needs for the specific convergence education in the field of electronics, software, and automobile, and opinions on convergence education. A total of 341 participants responded to the questionnaires: 132 in the electronic field, 100 in the software field, and 109 in the automobile field. The industry needs for convergence education were analyzed and implications were suggested. The results of this study are expected to provide a guideline for developing convergence education programs in higher education.
