Chemical Engineering

The School of Mechanical Engineering originated from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, founded in 1966 and the Department of Machine Design, established in 1978. Both departments have produced over 7,000 mechanical engineers who have contributed to the national development of Korea and actively participated in industrial sites, the academic world, and research institutes, achieving excellent performances. Since the integration of the two departments as the School of Mechanical Engineering in 1996, it has continuously endeavored to develop institutions and educational conditions including education programs, educational environment, academic affairs management, departmental operation, and student management to the international level, through establishing its own development plans.


As a school with highly diverse faculty interests, we encourage innovation and creativity in multidisciplinary themes as well as core areas of mechanical engineering through our education and research programs. The school of mechanical engineering is committed to transmit and extend engineering knowledge for the betterment of the local society, the nation, and the global community.
