GREETINGS FROM DEPT CHAIRMAN               

Welcome to the Electronic Engineering (EE) Department at Hanyang University. The EE department was derived from the Electric Power Engineering Department which was founded almost 74 years ago. The department has gone through many transformations since then. It has been 4 years since we embarked as the first in Korea on a new department, EE with the concept of Convergence in Electronics. This EE Department is designed to provide a curriculum for convergence between areas such as electronics, information, and communications. In addition, the EE Department promotes academic activities in IT convergence with vehicles, biology, and media, to name only a few.
The EE Department is the largest in the engineering school with 40 full time faculty members and about 1000 undergraduate and graduate students. Our department has been selected as one of the 4 Diamond Departments of Hanyang University and is supported each year with an extra 1.5 Million US$ from the university for scholarships and other welfare programs.. Almost all freshmen and more than 50% of our students in the other grades receive full scholarships either from the University or from the industry. Naturally, we admit the top 1% of all high school graduates in Korea. After 4 years of education, they are the graduates most highly favored by the best engineering companies in Korea including Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics, and Hyundai Motor Company. Also many graduates pass government exams to become government officers and patent lawyers. Our department graduates almost always appear among the top 3 seats in these examinations.

Our Department has been selected as one of the seven EE departments for the “Brain Korea (BK) 21 program” over the last 7 years. In 2013, we were once again selected as one of the six EE departments for the “Brain Korea 21+ program”. Through this program, every year we will be receiving almost 2.5 Million US$ from the government to support our graduate students. In the first seven years of the BK 21 program, we were ranked number 1 five times among the participating universities (departments) at the annual evaluations. In 2013, Hanyang University was evaluated as the best university in Korea in terms of technology transfer and patents by the Electronic Times News of Korea. The total amount of research funding brought in from the industry and the government in 2013 amounted to almost 15 Million US$.

Please browse our website, learn more about us, and contact us with any questions. If you are joining us as a student, we look forward to your contributions to our department and to the field of EE in general. We hope to be part of your success.
