Seminars in Nano Science & Technology


The course consists primarily of guest lectures given by Korean and international professors, carrying out cutting-edge research in nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials science or basic natural sciences with relation to convergence science and/or nanoscience and nanotechnology. The speakers are invited from various research institutes and industries and they have been asked to present their state-of-the art research in a way that is accessible to graduate students with interest in convergence science.

Course literature: Each guest lecturer will provide a pdf file with her/his slides.
