Undergraduate Program


Based on the knowledge of material properties depending on the composition and structure, the materials science and engineering (MSE) is a discipline that leads the future industry by developing new materials required in applications and discovering new functions of materials that could not be known before. Since future science and technology are expected to develop closely in connection with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the department of MSE at Gachon University is dedicated to pioneering the field of “intelligent materials (i-Mat)” that can effectively drive future industries. The purpose of the undergraduate program is to cultivate talented personnel with knowledge and experience in materials.


Master's Program

To cultivate creative talents suitable for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the field of materials engineering, the following educational goals are set.
