Our department is trying to be a supports producing the world’s top nano-composites leaders.
The department of Nano Engineering, which was established in 2018, consider a graduate school
(SAINT, SKKU Advanced Institute of Nano Technology) established in 2005 to nurture specialists
in the fields of nano-fabrication and fusion as matrix. SAINT, which started as korea's first fusion
research center, has been recognized as the world's eighth most advanced nano-fusion research
institute since its establishment in 2005. Through the support of fusion researches of professors
in various department, SAINT is securing the best source technology regarding two-dimensional
nano-materials including graphene in korea. (Ranked 1st in the world of graphene patents,
selected in BK21 plus program 2014 / 1st re-selected in BK21 plus program 2016) Based on these
global R&D research capabilities, the department of nano engineering was newly established
as an undergraduate course in 2018 in order to become an educational institution capable of
cultivating creative and leader-type nano-compositing experts capable of leading the start-up.
To nurture these global talents, we will establish a world-class nano-fusion multi-disciplinary
curriculum that encompasses theoretical principles and practical application technologies in the
field of education. Also, we will activate R&D projects, global field practice programs,
entrepreneurial mindsets and link of technology industrialization. The department of nano
engineering is composed of 10 faculty members with various majors (2 material engineering,
2 physics, 4 chemical engineering, 1 chemistry, 1 electronics). Based on various educational and
research experiences, we are going to educational institute for “talent training of
multi-disciplinary global science and technology talent training in nano-fusion field“.
Students who majored in nano engineering can be active as professors, professional
researchers, and founding CEOs in fields such as nanoelectronics, nanoenergy, nanophysics,
nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine.
The department of nano engineering is working to successfully achieve the world’s top
nano-fusion multi-disciplinary education institutions, world-class creative research
achievement, global leading start-up and creating future new industry by the establishment of
a specialized curriculum, the enhancement of the research capacity of department professors
and the improvement of the department.
