Ewha College of Pharmacy Earns Accreditation for Pharmacy Education in 2020
Ewha College of Pharmacy Earns Accreditation for Pharmacy Education in 2020 The Ewha College of Pharmacy was accredited by the Korean Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (KACPE). As evaluation certification became mandatory upon the enforcement of the amended Pharmaceutical Affairs Act, the KACPE conducted the evaluation process in 2020 for the first time since its launch, assessing six colleges that submitted applications for pharmacy education certification. Among them, Ewha’s College of Pharmacy satisfied the standards required by the new evaluation system, obtaining a five-year accreditation until December 31, 2025 and thereby building a solid foundation for producing excellent pharmacists in Korea as a certified educational institution. Since its launch as the Department of Pharmacy in Hanglimwon at Ewha Womans University in 1945, the College of Pharmacy has achieved a series of successful endeavors while maintaining its reputation as the first, best, and largest pharmaceutical education institution in Korea since the revision of the school-year system to a four-years-plus-two system. The college has led major national projects such as BK21 PLUS; Support Program for Graduate Schools of Pharmaceutical Industry Management; Leading Research Centers; and AI-Driven Drug Development Platform Project, and produced more than 9,800 pharmaceutical professionals with the support of outstanding faculty and cutting-edge research facilities. The accreditation will allow the College of Pharmacy to make substantive improvements in its pharmacy education such as expanding educational facilities and faculty, reinforcing the operation of lifelong education programs, and reorganizing the integrated six-year curriculum to train pharmacists who are able to meet the demands of the times. In particular, with the implementation of the integrated six-year system starting in 2022, the college created the Department of Future Industrial Pharmacy to focus on providing a multidisciplinary convergence curriculum through the two majors of Pharmacy (90 students) and Future Industrial Pharmacy (30 students). Based on these diverse efforts, the Ewha College of Pharmacy will take the lead in nurturing self-directed individuals with creative convergence capabilities, a patient-centered mindset, aptitude for drug development, and a spirit of cooperation and respect, as well as world-class convergent pharmaceutical professionals who will lead the future of the industry.

Prof. Lim Hyesook Takes Office as Chairperson of National Research Council of Science & Technology On Thursday, January 21, Professor Lim Hyesook from the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Ewha’s ELTEC College of Engineering took office as the chairperson of the National Research Council of Science and Technology (NST). Launched with the aim of supporting, nurturing, and systematically managing research institutions, the NST is a public institution representing 25 government-funded research institutions in the field of science and technology, and the position of NST chairperson corresponds to a ministerial-level position. Professor Lim Hyesook was inaugurated as the youngest and first female chairperson of the NST, marking another unprecedented achievement for Ewha. Professor Lim is writing new history in the field of Korean engineering, particularly as a woman scholar in the male-dominant field of electronic engineering. She earned her bachelor’s and master's degrees in engineering from the Department of Control and Instrumentation at Seoul National University and a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in the U.S. During her time in the U.S., she also worked at Bell Laboratories and Cisco Systems. Since joining Ewha Womans University in 2002, she served as Vice President of the Department of Faculty and Academic Affairs and Dean of the College of Engineering. She is a regular member of the National Academy of Engineering of Korea, which is the most prestigious engineering-related organization in Korea. Professor Lim has shown outstanding research achievements, with exceptional talent in the field of core technologies of high-speed communication networks. With the selection of the Convergence Education Research Team of Intelligent IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) for Human-Centered Smart Factory in October as a fourth-stage BK21 project supported by the Ministry of Education, she is now cultivating convergent talents and carrying out practical research in the smart factory sector through convergence research between electronic engineering and mechanical engineering. She has pioneered a new path as a female engineer and accomplished remarkable records such as receiving the Award for Women Scientists and Engineers in 2014, from the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning, and the Medal of Science and Technology Honor in 2020, and becoming the 50th and first woman president of the Institute of Electronics and Information Engineers.
