Display Convergence provides education in not only display, which is the biggest industry in South Korea, but also in key theories and application of convergent fields that are related to display. This major conducts creative research and offers education with specialization in theory, mechanism, materials, processes, device knowledge, and real experience for next generation display.

The faculty of Display Convergence is composed of the core researchers at Samsung Electronics and Samsung Display who not only excel in theory but also have relevant field experience. To develop talent in the display field, this major provides comprehensive education in all areas of display covering physics, energy, materials, and chemistry, along with theory lessons. This department is also researching future technology development that can be used as materials, processes, or devices of next generation display through practical education such as experiments, placements, and industry-academic cooperation, aiming for the ultimate objective that is the development of high-quality human resources of display convergence technology.
