Sungkyun Advanced Institute for Nano Technology (SAINT)

SAINT was founded on March 1, 2005 as one of the core programs of Sungkyunkwan University's VISION to be ranked in the top 100 universities in the world.

In partnership with financial support from Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT), the Institute’s goal is to become one of the top 5 nanotechnology-related institutes in the world. To achieve its goal, the SAINT developed an infrastructure, recruited the best researchers and initiated networks with worldwide nanotechnology conferences, published a SCI-level journal, and established a graduate school dedicated for nanotechnology research and education.

Considering the potential impact of nanotechnology on future economic growth, it is one of the top research priorities in many countries including Korea, because advanced countries need to exploit their future technology. SAINT will play a crucial role and generate edge technology in this field.

Center for Students with Disabilities


The Institute’s mission is to educate and train students who will become leaders in the next generation of global industry advancement. To accomplish this we have recruited world class researchers with well-equipped research facilities.
The Institute’shigh quality tutoring system encourages students to excel inthis fascinating field. The Institute has made great strides in the field of nanotechnology, and is always on the lookout for motivated young graduate students who recognize the importance of its mission and goal.
