We are one of the most biggest single college
that consists of 5 majors including mechanical systems design, energy systems, precision manufacturing systems, control and automation systems and nuclear systems with about 60 faculties, 20 staff members, 1,600 undergraduate students and 300 graduate students.
We were invited to large-scale government-funded projects including NURI, BK21, BK21+, GIFT, LINC and CK-I as a specialized college.

We also make all-out efforts to provide a top class educational environment by improving experimental facilities. Moreover, we strive to foster talents sought by companies with a focus on our field training programs. In recognition of our effort, the School of Mechanical Engineering at PNU was selected as the best college in the Industry-perspective University Evaluation.
Approximately 20,000 alumni have played leading roles in the development of Korean industry. We near top in the rankings of the number of new executives in major corporations. In 2014, we were selected as a college that produced the most number of executives in top 10 companies.
