About the Department
- There are participations of professors in Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Material Engineering, and Environmental Engineering, which are the core of 4th BK 21 program, as well as professors in Energy, Policy, Economy, and Engineering.
- In the Department, there has been a conversion to a complex and diversified energy education utilizing knowledge from diverse fields such as Science, Technology, and Economy, from energy education limited to traditional academic fields. And the Department aims to progress programs that link and integrate advanced technologies such as nano scientific technology, new scientific technology based on technology convergence, and energy economy and policy.
