Founded in 1986 as Korea’s first research-oriented university, POSTECH has constantly led change and innovation in the nation’s higher education. Despite its short history and being located far from the capital in a non-English speaking country, POSTECH has risen to become one of the leading universities in Asia.
The driving force behind POSTECH’s rise is the “power of together.” All of POSTECH’s achievements have been possible in just 30 years thanks to the united support from members of the university, POSCO, the Korean government, local governments, corporations, and all those who love POSTECH.
As POSTECH moves into a new era, I believe that our future will be brighter when we recognize and respect the diversity of our members, institutes, and partner organizations and gather our strengths. We will continue to innovate and move forward with you.
