We nurture talented leaders who contribute to
human life through the convergence of education and
the exploration of innovative technologies.
I am Jae-Young Sim, Dean of the College of Information and Biotechnology at UNIST.
Although UNIST was founded just over ten years ago, it is already attracting attention as a young university. In the 2021 World University Rankings, UNIST was ranked 5th in the country and 10th in the world among emerging universities with less than 50 years of establishment. In September 2020, there was a college-centered reorganization for the second leap and development of UNIST. As a result, the College of Information and Biotechnology was born.
The College of Information and Biotechnology was founded to pursue the vision of making human life more convenient, safe, healthy, and pleasant through the convergence research in various fields of Information and Biotechnology with a focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI). We aim to cultivate creative and competent leaders of the 4th Industrial Revolution by connecting AI technology with data from various industrial fields such as info-communications, healthcare, manufacturing, and so forth.
The College of Information and Biotechnology at UNIST consists of 6 departments and 1 graduate school: Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Biological Sciences, Design, Industrial Engineering, and the Graduate School of AI. Convergence and innovation are critical in growing areas of industry, including smart manufacturing, digital healthcare, smart mobility, and more. For such foundations, I expect the talented students of the College of Information and Biotechnology to be the protagonists of the rapidly changing information age.
Through harmonization and collaboration, the College of Information and Biotechnology will be at the forefront of achieving the vision of UNIST – to be a world leading university to advance science and technology for the prosperity of humankind.
We look forward to your continued interest and support in the future.
Dean, Jae-Young Sim
