POSTECH was established in 1987. As the first research university in Korea, POSTECH aimed to serve humanity. POSCO, whose president at the time was Park Tae-joon, actively supported and proceeded to found POSTECH. The first president of POSTECH, Kim Ho-gil, specified the plan for POSTECH’S successful establishment that continues to this day. 32 years have passed since then. POSTECH has grown into a leading university worldwide, influencing society and industry in many positive ways.
