College of Engineering, Pusan National University. Welcome to the College of Engineering, Pusan National University which is the first national university in Korea. The College of Engineering at Pusan National University has 15 majors with the widest range of choices in Korea since it started with civil, mechanical, chemical, and textile engineering in 1954. We have about 230 full-time professors with the best abilities in Korea, who are devoted to education and research, and about 7,500 undergraduates and 1,500 graduate students who are producing the excellent research results with the professors. About 50,000 alumni of the College of Engineering have been working as engineers, researchers, and even CEOs in industries and research institutes.
The Future of Korea!
The southeast area is in Busan, and the metropolitan area is in Seoul.
The southeast area is the mecca of Korea's backbone and manufacturing industries, where steel, automobiles, petrochemicals, shipbuilding/offshore, aviation, and robot industries are concentrated. Korea’s representative major companies such as POSCO, Hyundia Motors, SK Energy, Hyundai Heavy Industries, Samsung Heavy Industries, Doosan Heavy Industries, Korea Aerospace Industries, LG Electronics, and LG Chemical are located in the southeast. Moreover, many national research institutes such as Korea Electric Research Institute, Korea Institute of Materials Science, Korea Institute of Ceramic Engineering & Technology, Defense Agency for Technology and Quality, Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (Southeast Division) and Korea Institute of Ocean Science & Technology are also located in the southeast area.
College of Engineering at Pusan National University is a regional core institute for education and research that educates key human resources necessary for industries and research institutes in the southeast region. It is why we have consistently shown an employment rate of over 80%, the highest in Korea.
College of Engineering, Pusan National University open your future.
We have led Korea's engineering education with the goal of educating "engineers with creativity, comprehensive design capability, and strong sense of ethics & responsibility."
In the future, we will focus on building up talents with ability of D.N.A. (Data, Network, Artificial intelligence) needed in the era of the 4th industrial revolution, by using infrastructure of cutting-edge technology education. In addition, we will try to internationalize graduate students and improve their ability for industrial application, which will enable them to take charge of international sensibility and practical research.
College of Engineering, Pusan National University, I look forward to working with you in its development and growth.
