The department of Applied Mathematics consists of three fundamental fields: Mathematical Analysis, Algebra, and Geometry. It also includes specific fields such as Scientific Computation, Quantum Informatics, and Statistics. The faculty members in the department are educating and researching on these Applied Mathematical areas, in conjunction with basic studies.
Physics is a discipline that seeks to understand the various natural phenomena in the universe through general principles. The method of physics that understands nature has the power to unveil the essential underlying mechanisms of complex phenomena with rigid universality in the simple, clear, and intuitive ways. Applied Physics is a science that exploits the knowledge and methodology of physics to pioneer the frontier of sciences and technologies those human society really needs, linking pure academic researches to the creation of new technologies.
Life Science is the field that aims to unveil the secrets of life. We are trying to gain basic and advanced knowledge about life and to solve medical, environmental, and developmental problems. Life Science requires the understanding of several levels of organization, including bio-macro molecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and carbohydrates, complex cellular processes such as metabolism and signal transduction, and the behavior of whole cells and organisms. Life Science is our future!
Teaching in Applied Chemistry major is centered around four subdivisions of physical, organic, inorganic and analytical chemistry with the equal emphasis on the theory and experiments. The 12 faculty members, along with more than 50 graduate students and researchers, carry out active research in areas that encompass fundamental sciences and cutting-edge industry, namely bionano fusion technology, nano materials and devices, medicinal chemistry and fine chemical industry.
In the department of marine science and convergence engineering (MSCE), based on the convergent knowledge on the ocean monitoring and exploration engineering, marine ecology and biotechnology, marine environmental and climatic changes, marine bio- and mineral resources and marine energy, we foster well-educated specialists in ocean sciences and engineering in the future. Disciplines in the MSCE include: (1) studies on the use of underwater acoustics to study physical properties at sea, (2) studies on marine systems and coastal engineering using diverse geophysical exploration methods and numerical modeling, (3) studies on the global warming mechanisms and ocean-atmosphere interactions using numerical models, (4) studies on the ecological and biogeochemical processes and biotechnological application of marine bio-resources, and (5) environmental and eco-toxicological studies of marine ecosystems.
Department of Photonics and Nanoelectronics aims to educate creative professionals who will lead the future IoT-based society by combining optical engineering, electronics, and nano science. Curriculums specialized in optoelectronic devices, optical signal processing, lasers, displays, nanotechnologies, and semiconductors are offered. On top of the basic theory, a special emphasis is placed on experiments and lab courses with long-term projects.
