Since its opening in 1970, the College of Engineering at Kyungpook National University has been at the forefront of engineering education and leading-edge research in Korea. During these years Korea has rapidly developed into a highly industrialized nation. We take a great pride in our substantial contributions to the industrial and econo-mic growth of Korea not only by training engineer-s, but also by leading research and development in many areas of industrial interest.
The College is a dynamic community of 4,360 under-graduate students, 890 graduate students, and 120 faculty members and offers a wide range of engineering programs to meet the high standard education. We are constantly adopting innovative educational methods to build strong bonds between various industries and the college.
The faculty's research areas cover all major engineering disciplines as well as new and emerging technologies, including nanomanufacturing, nanoscience, alternative energies, and so on. Our active research activities result-ed in approximately 300 SCI papers in renowned international journals in 2018 alone. The cutting-edge research also directs and nourishes engineering education of both undergraduates and graduates to meet and excel at present and future challenges.
Our mission is to make sure that every student develops to his/her full potential with a passion for innovation and a global outlook to be a leader of enterprise and society. We shall continue to be a major leading institution educating engineers who will ensure and lead our sustainable and prosperous future.
