is to become a flagship university
with a daring and open heart
Welcome to POSTECH!
Despite its brief history, POSTECH has lit a spark in the nation’s higher education and scientific research to become a crown jewel as a top research university specialized in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Today, POSTECH shines bright as a beacon that guides brilliant minds around the world to POSTECH for advanced studies.
I firmly believe that POSTECH is to become a flagship university with a daring and open heart that will steer society into a new direction of higher education and research by welcoming change and facilitating collaboration among academic disciplines. For a brighter future, POSTECH will further reach out to the local business sector, establish stronger bridges for more interaction and build broader networks to create synergy in education and research.
Change and innovation are keywords that best represent today’s fast-paced world. The POSTECH spirit is to create out of nothing a boldness that will challenge conventional ideas, serve the community, nation and promote the betterment of humanity through public service. POSTECH continues to fulfill its mission and hold true to its reputation as a leading university that shepherds the advancement of Pohang and Korea.
