Message from Dean

Welcome to The College of Natural Sciences of Chungbuk National University.

“Exploring Science: The Wisdom of Nature”

Natural science is a discipline that attempts to discover principles which govern phenomena that we see, hear, and feel, and to establish in systematic ways the scientific laws that are followed by nature. Hence, natural science provides the fundamental basis for technological developments for the future. The school of natural science of Chungbuk National University is trying to play the central role in the developments of future technologies while keeping the core values of basic science from the technological challenges in the era of the fourth industrial revolution.

The College of Natural Sciences has been the alma mater of many researchers of the country for more than 40 years since it was founded in 1978. The school offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the departments of mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, biology, microbiology, biochemistry, astronomy & space science, and earth & environmental science. The graduate programs and research laboratories, now highly competitive domestically and internationally, support higher-level educations for masters and doctoral degrees.

“A university that earns pride and confidence”

Exploring nature based on fundamental principles is highly rewarding because the principles are directly applicable not only to nature but also to a wide variety of social and engineering situations. Hence science research and education cannot be overestimated. The College of Natural Sciences aims to be center for academic research and education by enhancing self-esteem and self-confidence of its members. We inspire the members by establishing a productive research environment. The professors have made outstanding achievements in their research and have trained students to be excellent researchers. We also support talented international students to serve the scientific community in diverse fields of study.

“A university that leads society with responsibility and vision”

I want the school to take the social responsibility. The College of Natural Sciences is providing various services with the society. We will help the members to take responsibility for the society and to have vision for the future. The students are encouraged to learn not only scientific knowledge but also affection for the society and vision for the future.
