The nations of the world are now accelerating their development of core technologies needed in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to strengthen their national competitiveness. Since technology involving artificial intelligence is an important element among these emerging technologies, the necessity of artificial intelligence education (AI) is emphasized in elementary, middle school, high school, and university. For effective AI education in Korea, a standard model of the curriculum has been developed, and the system is being further established. In particular, since AI education at universities directly affects the sort of talent training needed more and more in society, AI subjects are mandatory within the curriculum for various majors. Moreover, AI related departments, AI graduate schools, and AI centers are being actively established. In addition, the need to operate basic AI subjects for students not majoring in AI education is emerging in order to fuse AI subjects with those of other fields.
Therefore, in this research we organized the required subjects for AI studies, operated the curriculum for all new students of science and engineering at A University, and based on the basic materials obtained through our questionnaire, we analyzed the satisfaction and difficulty suitability of the AI educational content. We learned that this sort of content is regarded as necessary in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and in addition to receiving positive feedback concerning the study of AI, we also learned that there is a need for educators to adjust the level of the material to better facilitate learning. The results of this study will serve as basic reference material for the design and operation of basic education classes in AI, as well as a case study that operated required subjects for AI education.
