In the 21st century, instead of following the much explored path of traditional thinking, we must creatively build upon the foundation of available information and knowledge and demonstrate adaptability. In this new paradigm our Polymer Science and Engineering Department plans to lead changes in this field in the 21st century, by focusing on the polymeric materials for IT, BT, NT and ET industrial fields, and by further strengthening our academic curriculum and research facilities. In the near future, our department will re-establish our leadership position in research and education in the College of Engineering through aggressive research activities and closer co-operation with private sector companies.
The success of our students in the future strictly will of course, depend on their individual dedication, aggressive attitude and enterprising spirit. However, our department can offer students all the tools necessary to meet the challenges in this field.
Korea is ranked 5th in the world in the production of polymeric materials. However, the country still lags in the field of advanced and higher value-added functional polymeric materials. Therefore, the demand for engineers trained in specialized plastics is still growing and the future of the graduates of our department is promising. Our students will have a good opportunity for obtaining the necessary skills and network in this exciting field through our departmental professors' enthusiastic lectures and personal supervision of their research requirement for MS and PhD degrees. The future of modern technology can be described as a single word "convergence". All of the emerging technologies including NT, IT, and BT is strongly requiring for the realization of hybridizing various related technologies in harmony.
