Department prior to unification exhibited the best education and research capability in Korea. The Department of Materials Engineering received the top prize for industrial university evaluation 2012 in the fields of materials and steel. Moreover, Department of Chemical Engineering was ranked 6th at Joongang Daily for university evaluation in 2013. The overall aim for our unification of the Department of Materials Engineering and Chemical Engineering is to educate students with ingenuity in a convergent fields of materials science and chemical engineering. Our Department strives to maintain a balanced commitment between teaching and research; many faculty members have been honored by either the university, or national organizations for their outstanding teaching and research. Our undergraduate students benefit from a nationally accredited curriculum that carefully balances theory and application in a unified course curriculum. The unified Materials/Chemical engineering program provides a progressive experience, ranging from the fundamentals to the practice of engineering. We also encourage undergraduate students to participate in a variety of extra-curricular research activities. Students benefit not only from their daily contact with the faculty members, but also from their interaction with other students, to deal with related problems from a different perspective. This approach assists in providing breadth as well as depth to students’ graduate experience, and helps to prepare them for the interactive research and problem solving in industry, government laboratories, and institutes.
