Hanyang Logo

Hanyang University is a private research university in South Korea. The main campus is in Seoul, and the second one, the Education Research Industry Cluster at Ansan, or ERICA campus, is located in Ansan. Hanyang derives from the former name of the capital Seoul which was used during the Chosun Dynasty. Its motto and educational philosophy is Love in Truth and Deed.

Hanyang University's College of Engineering has historically produced specialists who have worked as the backbone of the nation's industrialization and modernization. The university established the nation's first engineering institute (DongA Engineering Institute) in 1939 which became the founding facility of Hanyang University.[citation needed] It also established the first school of architecture and civil engineering in Korea.

Hanyang University has an alumni network of 230,000 that is not only limited to the field of engineering but also in other fields. In 2009 the university was ranked 4th for the number of alumni serving as CEOs and executives at Korea’s top 100 companies. In the same year the Ecole des Mines de Paris ranked Hanyang University 89th for the number of alumni CEOs in the world’s top 500 companies.

The university enrolls over 1,500 foreign students each year and more than 1,700 students study abroad annually. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Cambridge, and Tsinghua University are one of the 339 sister institutions in 42 countries.

In the year 2012 Hanyang University ranked 7th in Korea according to the QS World University Rankings, climbing the table since 2010 (9th in 2010, 8th in 2011). The University has in recent years jumped 105 steps since 2010 and currently ranks 249th in the world (33rd in Asia) in the QS World University Rankings.

 

City Information:

Seoul— officially the Seoul Special City — is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea. The Seoul Capital Area, which includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, is the world's second largest metropolitan area with over 25.6 million people, home to over half of South Koreans along with 632,000 international residents.

Situated on the Han River, Seoul's history stretches back more than 2,000 years when it was founded in 18 BC by Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. It continued as the capital of Korea under the Joseon Dynasty and the Korean Empire. The Seoul metropolitan area contains four UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Changdeok Palace, Hwaseong Fortress, Jongmyo Shrine and the Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty. Seoul is surrounded by mountains, the tallest being Mt. Bukhan, the world's most visited national park per square foot. Modern landmarks include the iconic N Seoul Tower, Lotte World, the world's second largest indoor theme park, and Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, the world's longest bridge fountain. The birthplace of K-pop and the Korean Wave, Seoul was voted the world's most wanted travel destination by Chinese, Japanese and Thai tourists for three consecutive years in 2009–2011 with over 10 million international visitors in 2012.

Today, Seoul is considered a leading and rapidly rising global city, resulting from an economic boom and growth known as the Miracle on the Han River which transformed it from the ashes of the Korean War to the world's fourth largest metropolitan economy in 2012 after Tokyo, New York City and Los Angeles.  A world leading technology hub, it boasts the world's sixth largest number of Fortune Global 500 multinationals such as Samsung, the world's largest technology company, as well as LG, SK, and Hyundai-Kia. Gangnam is the commercial center along with Yeoui Island forming the financial center and Digital Media City being the technology hub. Jongno and Central District are the historical and cultural center of Seoul. It is one of the world's most livable major cities, with the United Nations rating Seoul's quality of life higher than New York City, London or Melbourne in 2012.
