학과소개

The most unique feature of earth in the 21st century is the marine environment. Students aim to understand the phenomena of the marine environment, focusing on the global ecosystem, the scientific and technological development for space uses of marine environment, the development of marine energy, the exploration of marine resources, and the management and conservation of the marine ecosystem. More recently, sustainable ecosystem development and management of marine environment has become a crucial branch of study. This program provides the understanding and scientific and technological applications for marine environments. The study of marine phenomena is connected into four broad categories: biology, chemistry, physics, and geology, leading to a study of the uses and management of the true marine environment. The program's main purpose is to educate experts in developing various and plentiful marine resources. In addition, faculty members and students are involved actively in advance study and exploration with foreign universities and institutes. Students have opportunities for study exchange, research, and study abroad.

Graduates pursue careers as public service personnel of local autonomous organizations, or institutions under the control of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries. They may find positions as maritime police officers, custom examiners, researchers of the National Fisheries Research and Development Institute or the Korea Ocean Research and Develop- ment Institute, or personnel of the Korea Marine Pollution Response Corporation, the Korea Ship Safety Technology Authority, the National Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives, deep-sea fishery companies, companies related to fisheries, marine transportation business (possible substitution of military service), and educational institutions (after completing the teaching training course).
