Chonnam National University is the pride of the local community. For the past half century, it has been the engine that drives society forward. With its proud and brilliant history, CNU is now gearing up to make a great leap beyond its own boundaries. The College of Engineering has contributed to the development of industry and technology and has produced leaders who contribute to local and national development while simultaneously transforming itself into one of the premier engineering colleges in Korea. The mission of the College of Engineering in the 21st Century is to create an academic community where students and professors work together toward a brighter future. In keeping with the new paradigm of the 21st Century, stringent innovation in the educational system is required to be made on the basis of self-examination. As the Dean of the College of Engineering, I will make every effort under the motto of "a global standard education, world-class research, learner-friendly environment, and humanistic management" to fulfill our mission of becoming a leader in engineering science and technology, with a world and future-oriented vision.
