In this study, the career development competency means that the students in an engineering college should initiatively choose, prepare and adapt themselves for their future career in their lifetime. This study examined all the career-related references that are determined to be linked with the competencies of career development. Also, other references inside and outside of the country that are related to the career key competencies and engineering basic competencies were investigated in this study. Especially, the career development competency in this study was approached with two points of views; the process of career development for students and the ability to maintain and develop the future career in an engineering field. Ultimately, this study derived the conclusion that there are 8 categories and 42 subordinate constituents in the career development competency for the students in an engineering college.

  • This study was conducted to compare the self-leadership strategies and self-efficacy among the four types of career development in the Korean engineering college students. When the two variables including career decision level and career preparation behavior were considered, four different types of career development were obtained: immature, behavioral, pseudo, and ideal type. The results showed that the ideal type obtained the significantly higher scores on the self-leadership and self-efficacy scales than the other three types. The results of stepwise analysis suggested that each subtype had unique characteristics in relation to self-leadership strategies. Therefore, it would be useful to provide the engineering students with the specialized self-leadership training program based on the types of career development.

  • Accelerated technological advances and the convergence of information and communication technologies have led to changes of career concepts from one of lifetime employment to that of lifetime career. Given the importance of continuous career development for workers these days, systematic supports for workers' career development at the national level is necessary. Accordingly, a conceptual model of career competency mobility map (CCMM) has been proposed to support the development of workers' career competencies. The purpose of this study is to identify key issues that we should consider for real implementation by applying to each stage of the CCMM conceptual model as a case study. Based on the procedure presented in the conceptual model, the research process which includes collecting user information, conducting self-diagnosis of NCS-based job competencies, deriving necessary training competency, offering the guidance of training programs and job information were conducted. The results of the case study showed our participants' scores of competencies required further development and ranged from 1.83 to 4.52. Sequentially, a personalized information profile was offered for competency development, including training, certificates, and job information. Participants stated that the diagnosis results and profiles were meaningful and helped to explore further career development. Based on the results, implications are suggested.

  • Nowadays, IT that leads information era is closely connected to our lives. The importance of training human resources for global empowerment on IT is being emphasized all over the world. With the growth of international society, the cultivation of global human resources now includes the cultivation of future human resources and the educations related with the career development program. However, the programs that colleges are operating for the cultivation of global human resources have been limited only to supporting the participation in international training program, operating camp and conferences, etc. On the contrary, to give many learners chances of experiencing courses for global empowerment and employment capability, We are operating the Internet of Everything online education program with Cisco Networking Academy Korea. Based on the management cases of Internet of Everything online education program, this thesis is suggesting a career program on global empowerment that many learners can experience, different from the limitation of the existing program.
