Abstract


Objectives: Survey of aerospace-related major students was conducted to evaluate their satisfaction levels (or importance levels) for the various curriculum and support systems of convergence-oriented talent development. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Statistical forecast analysis software IBM SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) was utilized for the research data of the aerospace major students' understanding of their curriculum. This data can be used as base data for future curriculum settings. Findings: The difference between this study and prior research on convergence curriculum is as follows. First, whereas the subject of previous research was convergence education based on the convergence of disparate fields of study, this research dealt specifically with the aerospace field where cutting-edge technologies converge. Second, while previous studies focused on the general direction of convergence education and its teachers, this research proposed a direction for convergence education from the learners' point of view. Application/Improvements: The research analyzed which factors affected the development of convergence-oriented talent development. The results may be used for the future planning and establishment of education programs to facilitate convergence-oriented talent development.
