Welcome Aboard!

Ulsan is my hometown where I graduated from ByungYoung  Elementarry School in 1965 and Jaeil Middle School in 1968. When I left town for my high school study, Ulsan was just about to be transformed from a typical rural town to the center of Korean industrialization.

 While gazing at Venus at dusk and burning flare from the newly built oil refinery over the hill, I let my imagination run wild to figure out what kind of life I would have. Though I didn't have a clear idea, I reminded myself everyday of a phrase that I had written on a mirror in red, "Fight It Out."

I left Korea in 1981 for my master and doctoral studies and took 27 years to come back in 2008. Now, I'm here in my hometown in 40 years. I don't think it was just a coincidence, but a miracle in His plan. Thus, I'm so happy to live my third life with excitement and enthusiasm for both UNIST and Ulsan.

Let's start this journey together as a team so that we will build up UNIST as a world class university!
