“Multidisciplinary research”, indicating the new paradigm through the realization of convergence science and technology
Since its opening in 2009, UNIST has truly become one of world’s leading science and technology universities. UNIST aims to be ranked within the top 10 Science and technology universities by 2030.
Multidisciplinary research is bringing disciplines together to talk about issues from each of their perspectives. They may collaborate, but they maintain a separation of their disciplines in that process. When the project is done, those disciplines go back to where they originated to start other projects.
Enhancing the Prosperity of Humankind
UNIST’s Major Research Area isAdvanced Materials
UNIST’s major research areas are next generation energy and advance materials. UNIST Research Center, together with its world class faculty, plans to contribute to the development of local industry and economy through transferring the research experience, knowledge, and technology of its scientists.
UNIST now stands at the center of global research with cutting edge research equipment, especially in the field of high tech materials and next-generation energy technologies. We create the best research outcomes based on an optimal research environment. UNIST strives to create a new future for the city of Ulsan.
