Pohang University of Science and Technology(POSTECH) Country : South Korea Year founded :1986 Address: 77 Cheongam-Ro, Namgu Pohang City, Gyeongbuk, Korea Website: http://www.postech.eduhttp://www.postech.edu
History POSTECH was established by Park Tae-joon, the CEO of Pohang International Steel Corporation (POSCO).
The university's founding president was Dr. Hogil Kim, who envisioned a research-oriented institution for Korea modelled after the California Institute of Technology.
Initially, the full name of POSTECH was Pohang Institute of Science and Technology. The official opening of the university took place on December 3, 1986.
Motto:Integrity, Creativity, and Aspiration ( 성실, 창의, 진취 )
Today, POSTECH has grown into one of the world's leading science and technology research-oriented universities. Its 3,000 students, 800 researchers and 240 faculty members represent the brightest minds studying and researching on a large 165 hectare campus with state-of-the-art facilities located on the southeastern coast of Korea..
Professor Sangmin Jeon (CE) and Jinmyoung Joo (Post Doc.) have developed the technology that diagnoses cancer by using micro-oscillators made of photo- catalytic silicon and nanoparticle on the inside and magnetic material on the outside.
Prof. Jeon stated, “This technology is expected to be more effective and eco- nomical than existing measuring techniques because it shortens diagnostic time by measuring infinitesimal proteins related to cancer. It is why this technique receives spotlight from academia.”
In commemoration of its 20th anniversary in 2006, POSTECH declared "POSTECH Vision 2020" to show its strong determination to become a world class university. "
POSTECH Vision 2020" states that POSTECH's goals as a university are: 1) to train and educate creative scientists and engineers with global leadership
2) to create economic value by conducting academically and industrially high impact research and 3) to develop into a world's top 20 research-oriented university.
