Welcome to the UNIST
School of Urban and Environmental Engineering
"A Better Environment, A Better Life"


 

On behalf of the School of Urban and Environmental Engineering(UEE) at UNIST,  I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our School of UEE. Your interest, participation, and cooperation are the strong engine to move forward the academic programs of our School of UEE.

Growing demand of food, energy, water, and housing driven by the exploding world population has caused serious environmental issues including global climate change. Sustainability is becoming a top requirement for adopting any newly developed technologies, which need to be in a way to minimize adverse impacts on the natural environment and at the same time keep the mankind ever more prosperous.

"A better environment, a better life" is the motto of the UEE and our dedicated commitment to the society. Meeting with the critical need from the society, the School of UEE is designed to develop convergence technologies for preserving the natural environment and improving the quality and safety in our lives in the built environment.  As a part of UNIST, a leading research-oriented university,  we are dedicated to seriously take the challenges from our built and natural environments and address many important cross-cutting issues arising from them.

The Shool of UEE provides four important inter-disciplinary tracks (programs) on Environmental Analysis & Pollution Control Engineering(PCE), Earth Science & Engineering(ESE), Urban Development Engineering(UDE), and Disaster & Risk Management Engineering(DRE) for the undergraduate students, and three programs on PCE, ESE, and UDE for the graduate-level students. Our discipline is based on the conventional engineering programs of the Earth Science, Environmental Engineering,  Civil & Urban Engineering, and Risk Management, and our goal is to integrate and crystallize them. 

Steve Jobs, the former Apple CEO, said "You've got to find what you love". With no hesitation, I strongly recommend that the area of UEE is what you would love to indulge in.  We are looking forward to seeing your active participation and valuable collaborations regarding the education and research activities of our school in the near future.

Thank you very much.
