Founding President of KENTECH
Dear Prospective Students,
We human beings are facing serious problems caused by the climate change. With the imprudent consumption of fossil fuels since the Industrial Revolution of the eighteenth century, the concentration level of greenhouse gases has consistently increased in the Earth’s atmosphere. Under these circumstances, we have reached a point where global warming and environmental destruction can by no means be tolerated. To accomplish the goal of zero carbon emissions by 2050, the developed countries, South Korea included, have agreed to reduce carbon emissions in stages , in tandem with developing and advancing new energy technologies. In the years to come when you graduate from KENTECH and play a crucial role in our society, the competitiveness of nations will be depending on whether a nation has the pool of human talents to develop and operate es the technologies to produce clean energy with no carbon emissions.
KENTECH is the first ever global university dedicated solely to energy research and technology. This institution is established to cultivate future energy field leaders, whose demand is expected to increase in the medium and long run. We rely on the innovative engineering education model that is deliberately designed to help students to practice and build the skills of problem solving and critical thinking. KENTECH aims to take the lead in develop and enhance new energy technologies and also grow brilliant talents among our students. We expect our students to contribute as good citizens to humanity, regional, national, and global, with their skills and knowledge gained from KENTECH, particularly, in future energy science and technology and environmental technologies.
Have you ever enjoyed the pleasure of learning while actively investigating certain issues or problems that you were curious about? If that is the case, KENTECH is the right place for you, a step to make your dream come true. At KENTECH, we provide an excellent academic and research environment where you can learn to achieve your goals later in energy fields: a prominent researcher and scholar in the fields, or an energy entrepreneur by turning your creative ideas into new and practical technologies. Moreover, the School of Energy Engineering, the only one academic Department at KENTECH, offers flexible programs to enable you to independently learn and perform research, as well as build your knowledge base on how to build operating energy businesses with new inventions. We also run curricular and extracurricular programs that offer full-scale support for students. Students will be able to experience and acquire life skills: cultural diversity and inclusiveness, communication and teamwork, leadership, and self-esteem. At KENTECH, you will be taking one step closer to your dream.
We believe you are the new energy sources that will drive the world as leaders of future energy domains. Are you excited about innovating existing energy systems with the power of artificial intelligence? Are you passionate about developing new battery materials to increase driving distances of electric vehicles? How about inventing new technologies to replace the carbon-based civilization with the hydrogen-based, or even create an artificial sun, our dream energy source?
Join KENTECH and make your dreams come true here. We are KENTECH.
The pathway on which you walk at KENTECH will be the written energy history, for both Korea and this planet Earth.
