The department of Material Engineering is committed to provide its students the best education and training to become leaders in their chosen areas of expertise through undergraduate and graduate programs.


Department of Chemical Engineering


The Department of Chemical Engineering of Hanyang University at Ansan is nationally recognized for its leadership in modern engineering research and education. Its goal is to provide students with tools, experience, and adaptability to prosper not just as new graduates but throughout their careers.


Department of Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the engineering aspects of design and development, thermofluics analysis, machine design, manufacturing, automatic control, and the science of machine application. The broad areas to which mechanical engineers contribute are power generation, energy conversion, manufacturing, robotics, automated manufacturing systems, and other applications in the field of engineering.


Department of Industrial & Management Engineering


The department offers programs of study leading to the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial and Management Engineering. To provide students with disciplines and skills needed in the era of globalization, competitive business, and service oriented environment, our undergraduate program is organized into the following six specialty tracks.


Department of Bionano Engineering


The Bionano Engineering Department provides an interdisciplinary education and research environment that focuses on fusion technology of Biotechnology, Nanotechnology and Biomedical Engineering. It was established strategically in 2010 to make great contributions to the advanced industrial society. It purposes to nurture specialized global leaders with the knowledge of the latest technologies and theories. The faculty members of the department participate in research as bio-nano photonics, nano & bio sensor, bio-nano technology and functional bio-nano materials.




Dean’s Message of Welcome


Lately, “Convergence” and “Collaboration” have been making headlines across the social, economic, and knowledge systems. When we look at the engineering study’s trend in the past 50 years, these keywords of fusion can be understood in the same context. For instance, the engineering study began from basic and applied research in the ’50s and ’60s, went through a challenging and innovative research period in the ’80s and ’90s, and has been changing into potentially transformative and multidisciplinary research with competence equipped with latent impact during the period from early 2000 to the present time.

From the past to the present, Hanyang University has been leading the changes and innovation coinciding with the historical flow. Thus, it is not too much to say that the College of Engineering will lead the future society in the center of the flow.

Hanyang University’s tradition of pursuing practical academics was continued in the Ansan Campus. For 40 years since 1973, Hanyang has been focusing on the core major areas, such as architecture, civil & environmental system, transportation, electronics & communication, computer science, mechanical engineering, industrial management, materials, and chemistry engineering, and producing various outstanding individuals. In 2009, the Ansan Campus was transformed into ERICA (Education Research Industry Cluster at Ansan) campus, which symbolizes the cooperation and linkage of the university, institute, and industry. ERICA attracted many national institutes and enterprises to the campus, including Korea Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH), Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI), LG Innotek R&D Center, Korea Testing Laboratory (KTL), Gyeonggi Techno Park (GTP), and Business Incubator Center, and has been playing the leading role as the only industry-university-collaborating university in the metropolitan area by establishing a fruitful and promising cooperation system consisting of 1,000 internal and external researchers, including placement and technology research, which are part of the engineering curriculum, as the required subjects, and systematizing the education program.

In the future, the College of Engineering will realize the “New Hanyang 2020 Vision” by introducing a more systematic education system, including the establishment of an undergraduate/ graduate curriculum befitting the global standard and fostering the flagship-class research fields, opening the departments of bio-nano engineering, robotics, and intergrative engineering to foster practical talents suitable for the flow of convergence and for the complex era, and continuing the tradition and pride of practical academics that can secure the superiority of the future’s global technological competition.

On behalf of College of Engineering, I thank you for your interest and continuous support.

Q. Please elaborate on general tasks that the Administration Team manages.
A. As the College of Engineering Sciences is the largest college at ERICA Campus, we, as the Administration Team under it, feel the importance, too. The Administration Team is under the Responsibility Center, the RC, and divided into two parts with 22 teammates each. The offices are spread in the Second, Third, and Fifth Engineering Building. Our usual tasks are managing academic affairs, admission/transfer systems, and students supporting like graduate school scholarships, employment, budgetary control and events. We are in charge of efficient operation of the school administration and try to make all the process smoothly.


Q. What do you think that the students in the college need the most? Mostly, why they visit your office?
A. Generally, students come to RC office to ask about their own student records, majors, and graduate requirement or to get counseling on stop outs and returning to school. For the purpose of getting an available place for study group, they always come to office to rent spaces or classrooms. Recently, increased students visit office to get information on programs cooperated with the Illinois Institute of Technology and the UCR to apply for them. We are counseling students with all the information we have and try to find answers for all requires.


Q. There are relatively many departments and majors under the College of Engineering Sciences compared to other colleges. What are the unique features of your team that can be differentiated from other offices?
A. In our team, we have three principles. First, to be not partial and be fair in working since there are students related to the items we deal with. Second principle is to listen once again and think more about it and then make it into action. Third is to always take notes. These principles help our teammates respond better to what students and members of HYU are asking for us. We are now preparing to make public relations of our RC administration team in order to let all of HYU students and members get the services they want from us. By this campaign, we are not only waiting for students in need to come to us but we are actively approaching for them to give hands. We will do our best to be a complaint-free administration team which is friendly to all visitors.
