President of Daejeon Institute of Science and Technology

Hyoin Lee Ph.D.

  • With 79 years of history and traditions, Daejeon Institute of Science and Technology located in the central city of South Korea, Daejeon, is known as the best specialty university in the Jungbu region. From the vast, beautiful campus to the faculty who are devoted to research and producing professionals and to the laboratories equipped with the cutting-edge facilities, the institute presents unparalleled learning environments.

    In the 1940s when the country was experiencing difficult times under Japanese rule, we found Chungnam Taejon Hospital Annex Nurse Training Institute (1940) for the young people who wanted to realize the value of volunteer work and sacrifice hoping for the brighter future of the nation. The institute has been expanded and renamed to Taejon Nursing Junior College (1979) and Taejon Junior College (1988) and Hyechon College(1998) and to Daejeon Institute of Science and Technology(2014).
  • Educational principles pursued by universities and colleges may change over time. However, the founding principles of Daejeon Institute of Science and Technology have always been constant since its foundation: worshiping God that implies standing in awe of God is the root of knowledge, serving the country that emphasizes on contribution to the national and social development and loving one’s neighbors which teaches students to love and develop themselves. The institute is committed to produce talented students who have these qualities. Ultimately, the educational fruit pursued by the institute is to train and produce industrial field oriented professionals who have a sincere faith.
  • Along with optimized educational courses, the institute is equipped with cutting-edge learning facilities and has strengthened experiment and practice courses for students to improve vocational competency and quickly adapt to work environments. In addition, the institute strives and devotes all the energy to help graduate find jobs, focusing on its efforts on ensuring and achieving 100% employment rate through educating and producing field-oriented professionals.

    Some of the facilities of the Institute include Central Library that offers 1,500 seats and over 300,000 books and educational resources as an integrated academic information center and a modern hotel-type dormitory ‘Hongeun Haksa’ capable of housing about 1,000 students. On top of such facilities, the institute offers various scholarship and global internship programs that have contributed to the creation of an academic atmosphere. Hyechon Tower Carillon with 78 bells, authenticated by the Guinness Book of World Records Limited to be the world's largest carillon, delivers a message of ‘never give up (being knocked down seven times only to rise up eight times)’ symbolizing the dynamic leadership of the young, robust school, Daejeon Institute of Science and Technology.
  • Daejeon Institute of Science and Technology will never stop its steps of becoming Korea’s best university.
    We invite every one of you to the center of South Korea, Daejeon Institute of Science and Technology! Thank you.
