Greetings (Graduate)

Welcome to Sungkyunkwan University's (SKKU)

Department of Advanced Materials Science & Engineering


Department of Advanced Materials Science and Engineering (AMSE)


The Department of Advanced Materials Science and Engineering of Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) started from the Department of Metallurgical Engineering in 1967 and was merged with the Department of Materials Engineering in 1996. Later in 2005, it was renamed as the Department of Advanced Materials Science and Engineering (AMSE). The merge of the two departments realized convergence of various material technologies. As a result, our department has been growing rapidly by fostering many talented researchers with outstanding research output.


Recently, our department was ranked 26th in the Materials Sciences (2020 QS World University Rankings), demonstrating the feasibility of entering the top 20th in the world university rankings. We strongly believe that the AMSE will lead the future technological innovation by taking a solid position in materials engineering by structural reinforcement of education and research, promoting active international cooperation, and fostering promising researchers with a lasting desire for improvement.


In 2020, AMSE established "Fostering global elites in HumanTech materials" as the educational vision to preemptively cope with the future technological demands. Instead of the typical top-down approaches for teaching and learning, we intend to develop the student success-based human resource programs. Faculty members, the department, and the university will cooperate to provide full emotional & financial support for the students.


We appreciate your interest in the AMSE of SKKU. We can assure you that we will continue to strive to be a global leader in education and research in materials science and engineering. Thank you.
