Department of Bioresources & Food Science

Until 2012, our department at Konkuk University (KU) has produced outstanding graduates under the name “Department of Molecular Biology.” Since 2013 under a new title, the Department of Bioresources and Food Science has been fostering the growth of professionals suited to the fields of bioresources, food and medicinal substances, bioengineering, and food science. In order to foster such professionals, the department has been offering courses that fuse biotechnology and food science with the academic fields of traditional studies that are necessary for the understanding of bioresources. We also offer students a faculty academic advising system, mentoring, as well as local and overseas internship opportunities and student exchange. In addition, world-class standard research is being conducted in areas relevant to bioresources and food science through local and overseas collaboration.
