Sungkyunkwan University – Department of Energy Science
The History of Sungkyunkwan University, which is celebrating its 613th anniversary this year, represents the origins of Korea’s higher education. Reflecting on the history of world universities, the most prestigious tend to have emerged from a long history. They also were initially at the forefront of moral and civic education.
The ultimate goal of the Department is to develop fundamental and applied sciences and technologies for energy generation, storage, conversion/efficiency and distribution, and to strengthen the energy research competency of the University and the country. To achieve this goal, the Department has set the sub-goals for the four individual fields in three phases.
As we look ahead to the next 10 years, SKKU is seeking to advance our notion of the universities new role that of spreading the values of self-autonomy, diversity, communication and trust as core components of our campus life. SKKU have a dream that someday that our direction will eventually become the standard by which all great universities are measured. This is the sort of thinking that is part of our VISION 2020.
