Create new values to the future through challenge and innovation
Creating high added value through challenge and innovation towards the future

The mission is to create added value through a synergy of advanced Communications, Semiconductor, Display, and Computer Technologies. We apply this philosophy to smartphones, futuristic automobiles, intelligent robots, and to related fields such as bioscience and aerospace. The Electronic Engineering?Convergence in Electronics program is committed to solving important issues pertaining to a wide range of branches in electronics including Communication Technologies, Semiconductor Embedded Microelectronics, Optical Display Technology, and VLSI design. Our department has been selected as one of seven Diamond Departments at Hanyang University, and is therefore given special support from the university. Graduates of our program are counted among the top tier of their class in Korea, and their training is supported by collaboration programs organized with major Korean corporations such as Samsung Electronics, LG, SK Hynix, and others.
