Nurturing Talented Individuals as Leaders of the Advanced Technology Society
Having since the 1940s led the country's industrialization by pioneering the major industries such as chemistry, electronics, electrical engineering, and telecommunications, Lucky Goldstar (LG) founded LG Yonam Foundation in 1969 as part of its effort to fulfill the dream of an advanced industrial society in this land, thus engaging in various public service projects including the promotion of science and technology. Lucky Goldstar, which founded LG Yonam Academy in 1973, opened Yonam High Technology School of Animal Husbandry and has trained a lot of farming leaders with a view to training agricultural technology professionals who are required to achieve balanced development of industry and agriculture.
When it saw the dire need to develop industry professionals as leaders of advanced technology society, the Academy created a technical college. Opened in 1984, Yonam Institute of Digital Technology, which boasts its excellent faculty and educational facilities focusing on experiment and practice, aims to deliver specialized education that keeps abreast of a changing world by cleaving to both idealism and pragmatism. We will raise the institute, together with Lucky Goldstar (LG) Research Institute, as the cradle for conducting in-depth R&D in advanced technology and raising competent technology professionals as well as a good example of industry-university collaboration, and thereby fulfill our part in promoting the country's science and technology. We look forward to support and encouragement from all walks of life in the country.
