Every nation in the world is gathering its national workforce to the development of large-scale marine constructions such as man-made islands, marine airports, and others, in order to secure future power resources. Keeping pace with this world trend, the Division of Ocean Civil Engineering provides proper educational programs which are suitable to solve the issues of marine construction.
Dept. of Marine Environmental Engineering has established an industry-university-institute cooperation system for marine environmental issues including red-tide, sediment contamination, eutrophication, oil pollution, ocean wastes etc. and aimed to foster professional environmental engineers who work creatively and actively in the area of environmental industry.
The Dept. of Fisheries Business Administration aims to foster professional Fisheries businessmen who obtain knowledge about decision making/management and feasible management techniques which can be applied to fisheries corporation through theory learning and practices.
The Dept. of Marine Machinery System was designated as a supervising department of a NURI project for five years from 2004. It has fostered human resources in the field of high tech machinery such as transport machinery, shipbuilding materials, and vessel part materials. In addition, the Dept. of Marine Machinery System provides students and with opportunities for them to have practical experience through MOU, internship contracts with nearby large scale shipbuilding companies, which will be helpful after the students are employed.
The Department of Precision Machinery is a new paradigm of design and engineering and refers to mechatronics, which is the integration of machinery, electricity, and electronics. The Dept. of Precision Machinery, as a workforce of future industry, aims to build the automation of industrial facilities through the mechanization in production process.
The Department of Information and Communication Engineering fosters experts in the field of communication and IT convergence, who make our future though convergence of technologies in the information and communication area and other areas.
The Department of Mechanical and System Engineering is specialized in training high quality humane resources at diversified high-tech mechanical areas such as marine engines, industrial machineries, transport machineries, and shipbuilding and offshore plants.
The Department runs the Track System Education Course with collaboration of the neighboring oversized ship building corporation (SungDong Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Corporation), and establishes the industrial-university cooperation for in-service training and Memorandum Of Understanding of intern system. The students can accumulate the abundant in-service industrial experiences being available for immediate application after graduation.
The areas of employments are comprised of marine engineers, shipbuilding and offshore plants, heavy industries, general machineries, coast guards(special employment for marine officers), and fisheries & marine corporations.
The Dept. of Maritime Police System aims to foster human resources who are needed for advanced marine industry and advanced maritime police system, keeping up with international marine order. Department of Marine Life Science Students in the Dept. of Marine Life Science can learn and research the fields of Natural Science such as Physiology or Ecology, Life Science, or Marine Life Science and the field of Applied Science such as cultivating and managing marine life resources.
The Dept. of Marine Food and Life Science Engineering aims to foster human resources who are equipped with an ability of application and deep knowledge on marine life resource. The Dept. of Marine Food and Life Science Engineering also endeavors to explore the way to resolve food problems by using marine life resources to develop functional food which can be useful in the field of medicine and other industries.
The department of naval architecture and ocean engineering, is the industry research based marine department which provides a single base for all education, innovation and research related to the ship and offshore structure. Annually, more than 30 students register for accredited degrees in Marine Technology related streams. Teaching in the department is informed by industrially relevant research and supported by specialized facilities.
Marine Technologists at GNU recognize that new solutions must be found to ensure that the use of the sea and waterways. The curriculum consists of theories and experiments to understand design, construction and operation for ships such as cruisers, fast ferries, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). In addition, the curriculum also includes advanced theories to develop the high technology for design and installation of offshore plant.
The topics of researches in the department are safety assessment, structure analysis and motion analysis for ship and offshore plant which are ones of the core technologies to promote the new model of offshore plant such as drillship and FPSO etc. Research activities using the Hydrodynamics Laboratory as well as The SaeBada, underpin teaching on all undergraduate degree courses.Postgraduate courses in the School, either taught or by research, span a wide range of activities but association with identified research groups mean that students enjoy close contact with staff and fellow students to provide a friendly and flourishing research culture.
All students studying in the School enjoy an exciting and vibrant learning and recreational environment. The Students Common Room is a hive of activity and often the place to find the school committee planning their next event, which could be an outing to a shipyard and industry.
