Welcome to Yonsei University’s College of Life Science and Biotechnology

It is told that the 21st century is the age of Life Science and Biotechnology. In the age of globalization, Yonsei University has been offering integrated programs in fundamental life science, applied biotechnology, and biomedical fields to educate and research next-generation life science technologies. Under this founding ideology, the College of Life Science and Biotechnology was founded in 2008 and marked its 10th anniversary in 2018.


The College of Life Science and Biotechnology was established by combining the two departments and their majors – Biology and Biochemistry under the College of Science and Biotechnology under the College of Engineering. As of now, the College of Life Science and Biotechnology is composed of the best faculty members and students in the country and is well-prepared with cutting-edge equipment and facilities for high-quality education and research. With such facilities, our college is producing the best workforces in the life science and biotechnology fields in the country as well as accomplishing world-class research results.


Our college pursues to meet “the world’s best education and research institute in life science and biotechnology” standard in the future. We will put our best effort in education and research in order to race to become one of the world’s top research-oriented universities which produce the best personnel in the life science field and to accomplish a global-level research output.


I hope you join us and take a part in our leap to becoming a world-class college in the Life Science and Biotechnology field.
