Web Science and Technology (WebST) at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) is part of the World Class University program for the future growth of Korea. The WebST division has been established and is financially sponsored by the National Research Foundation of Korea to develop world-class research and nurture high-quality human resources in IT/software.

WebST is a new emerging discipline that takes the Web as its primary object of study and engineering. Exploring the interactions among the complex technical, engineering, and social aspects of the Web, KAIST’s graduate-level program rests on computing technologies to build and extend the Web, engineering techniques to develop large-scale applications, and analytical methodologies for understanding its nature and impact on various aspects of human society.
