Department of Nanotechnology & Advanced Materials Engineering
Nuturing specialists in the field of New Materials and Nanotechnology, armed with both theoretical and practical skills
In today’s society, the development of all advanced science and technology fields such as automobiles, aerospace, shipbuilding, heavy chemical industry, energy industry, semiconductors, and electric/electronic industry is impossible without the development of new and/or advanced materials. Nanotechnology and advanced materials technology, which are recognized as one of the 21st century’s key technologies, deals with all materials from conventional bulk materials to nano-scale materials (nm, 10-9 meter). Based on basic sciences such as physics, chemistry, and mathematics, the Department of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials Engineering covers a wide range of topics including the design of materials, the analysis of materials’ extrinsic/intrinsic properties, and the study of manufacturing processes for metals, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers which are used in various fields such as machinery, steel, aviation, space, electronics, energy, environmental, and medicine. Our department supervises the Engineering Education Certification Program by the Accreditation Board for Engineering Education of Korea, through which students can better understand their major, acquire specialized knowledge for creative applications, and learn more systematically in experimental design courses. As such, we are endeavoring to nourish experts who have adaptability to the real-world situation and problem-solving skills.
Foster experts in nanotechnology and advanced material technology, armed with both theory and practical ability.
Learn basic and creative science as well as develop comprehensive engineering design and evaluation abilities based on nanotechnology and advanced material engineering.
Equip students with the ability to communicate their thoughts efficiently for future-oriented skill acquisition and cultivate personality and sociability for better teamwork with colleagues and organization management skills.
Guide students to realize the international importance of an engineer in today’s global society and develop the capacity to grow as a pioneer in their future industry, education, research, and public institutions.
Career Path after Graduation
Our graduates can work in manufacturing firms and state-owned/industrial research institutes related with the fields of semiconductor, display, energy, metal, automobile, polymer, and chemical engineering. They can also enroll in master or doctoral programs to carry out further research.
