A Message From The Dean
Welcome to the Graduate School of Convergence Science and Technology!
The Graduate School of Convergence Science and Technology of Seoul National University was established in March 2009 amid the global buzz of “convergence”. It is the first educational and research institution in Korea, and also one of the frontrunners in the world. Despite concerns about the sustainability of the convergence as a methodology, not academic discipline, we have steadily grown through the efforts of talented professors and creative students who have been eager to take on new challenges. They have led us into this new era, and we’re now celebrating the school’s 10th anniversary. We are currently engaged in education and research in advanced disciplines, nano science and technology, intelligence and information studies, biomedical radiation science, molecular medicine and biopharmaceutical science, and digital forensic science, in order to discern the core values and needs that the future society would require.
The Graduate School of Convergence Science and Technology is a leading educational institution that strives to cultivate creative talent necessary for sustainable future society by respecting human beings, sharing social values, and pursuing human & eco-friendly technology. In addition, as a professional research institute that aims to create new values through convergence research, the Graduate School of Convergence Science and Technology intends to offer the society a solution to global issues that cannot be overcome with existing technology by conducting diverse and academic innovative research in areas encompassing science and technology, humanities and society, culture and art.
The Graduate School of Convergence Science and Technology of Seoul National University hopes to lead the revolution in the present by embracing and being open-minded in this global environment of unlimited competition and cooperation. We respect creativity and diversity; which is young, dynamic, and the root of future value. By establishing a model of creative convergence education and suggesting methods for innovative convergence research, we will further consolidate our position as a global educational and research institution.
