Welcome GIST undergraduates
to the Materials Science and Engineering
Welcome GIST undergraduates to the Materials Science and Engineering concentration (MSE concentration) at the GIST college! I am very pleased to introduce the materials science and engineering and the MSE concentration. It is no doubt that the numerous technologies of humankind have been remarkably developed by the success of creative and innovative materials. The MSE is of interdisciplinary science and technology that combines physics, chemistry, polymer science, metallurgy, and electronics, which play essential roles today in cutting-edge technologies, including information(IT), nano(NT), energy(ET), bio(BT), and space technology(ST). Accordingly, we need to educate excellent scientists and engineers for the multidisciplinary MSE area.
The MSE concentration offers the GIST undergraduate students fundamental knowledge and differentiated courses for understandings of a variety of novel materials and their structure-property-related performances in pursuit of contributions to the development of creative and innovative materials which can improve the quality of life of people in the world. The MSE concentration at the GIST college is committed to excellence in teaching and research through a strong bond with the graduate school of MSE that is highly reputed to be the world-class top level school.
The students of MSE concentration are supposed to be able to study and experience the multidisciplinary MSE researches such as semiconductor/optoelectronic materials, nano-electronic materials, organic materials, energy materials, and biomedical materials. We anticipate that they will become prominent scientists and engineers for the MSE and related fields.
