We are the first physics department in Korea that started from the Department of Physics & Mathematics in Yeonhee College in 1915. Our department has been making a great contribution to the development of science and technology and education in Korea, with the history of Korean physics since its inception. We have produced Korea's first Doctor of Science (Lee Won-cheol), and it is also the institution that awarded Korea's first physics high degree. In addition, we held Korea's first international academic conference, and for the first time in Korea, we have achieved results such as publication of a leading journal. As such, the history of our department was also the history of Korean physics.
At present, our department has continued to develop, and has made great progress by attracting large-scale national projects such as BK21 leading project, excellent science research center, and national core research center. It has grown into a department that competes with the world, and is now becoming the best department comparable to other leading universities abroad. In the future, we will become a leading institution in the development of Korean physics, as well as a center of creative research that can contribute to humanity.
We sincerely welcome the alumni of physics and everyone who supports physics. Your donation will be a great nourishment for the development of the department. We promise to reward your valuable support with the best results.
