Being an alumnus of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, ERICA campus, President Kim became a professor of Hanyang University in 1991 and is recognized for his contributions in various areas around the school. Since then, he has advanced within Hanyang over the past 40 years. “After all these years, I am confident that I love Hanyang more than anyone else does,” said President Kim. “Thus, I applied to become the president so I could lead Hanyang in making new forward progress.”

The next four years will be filled with Kim’s enthusiastic plans. President Kim proposes, as the four major management plans: strengthening global competitiveness, creating greater synergy between the two campuses and among departments, developing sustainable innovation projects, and actualizing the 3S vision. The greatest emphasis was put on 3S (smart education, start-up, and social innovation). President Kim says, through 3S, pragmatic individuals that 'accompany the world' may be cultivated, maintaining Hanyang’s honor as "the Engine of Korea."
