Prof. Seongjae Cho

My name is Seongjae Cho who is working in the Department of Electronic Engineering (undergraduate) and the Graduate School of IT Convergence Engineering (graduate) at Gachon University, Korea. I have been researching semiconductor devices and integrated circuits since I was fascinated by the unique beauty of this area where solid-state physics and electronic engineering closely encountered, perhaps around the middle of my 20's, in the belief that such very tiny electron devices make the whole electronic systems with great variety beneficial to many people and are the heart of modern electronics.
In teaching, I would be very happy if I can convey knowledge on semiconductors to my students and myself can grow with them day by day, and more hopefully and importantly, if they can learn how to learn by themselves because life might be a long journey of learning things we have not been taught.
I hope my dream will come true with all the helps of you who visit this place.
