The Department of Optics and Mechatronics Engineering provides specialized education in nano, bio, info, and cogno-related areas, which are key areas for industrial development in the 21st century. Students gain a broad knowledge of nano systems, materials used in semiconductor, memory, display and medicine. The department aims to develop talented individuals who can work in high-tech industries and contribute to the development of promising future technologies for the nation.
Students are given the opportunity to gain knowledge in converged academic areas of material, electronics and mechanics engineering. The department focuses on providing a systematic and objective-driven education by giving students customized curriculum guides based on their individual educational track, to prepare them to meet the diverse demands of society.
What is Converged Optics and Mechatronics Engineering?
Optics and Mechatronics Engineering is a inter-discipline that is on the leading edge of technology in the 21st century through the fusion of science and engineering.
In the 21st century, the convergence of technologies in various fields is strongly recommended for the creation of human-oriented products, which could improve quality of human life and social interactions. The synergistic effect will be obtained when the core technologies of the 21st century, including two choices of NT-IT convergence track (Nano-Information technology) and NT-BT convergence track (Nano-Bio technology), are joined at a common point. To meet this great demand, the Department of Optics and Mechatronics Engineering at Pusan National University intends to converge the core technologies in Optics and Mechatronics area.
