History

Discussions between the Ministry of Education and the provincial government about establishing the school were an election promise made in the country’s elections of 1992, which brought Kim Young-sam to power. These discussions actually began in late 1994, and official permission to establish the college was granted in 1996; construction on the campus began early the following year. The school opened its doors in 1998.
