<Retirement Ceremony Held for Professor Jeong Injeong of Department of Computer Convergence Software>

On December 12 at 4pm, a retirement ceremony for Professor Jeong Injeong of the Department of Computer Convergence Software was held in Nong Shim Hall, where professors and approximately 70 students from the Department of Computer Convergence Software attended.

During the ceremony, a plaque of appreciation was presented by Professor Jeong’s longtime colleague, Professor Jo Chungho, to honor Professor Jeong’s retirement and as a show of admiration for his hard work. Separately, Professor Jeong was presented with a digital photo album by Dean Jo Minho so that Professor Jeong would be able to reflect on his school life and long list of achievements. After that, Student President, Lee Yonghwi, gave a farewell greeting, saying, “Thank you Professor Jeong, not only for the class contents, but also for everything else you did.” He added, “I am sad about his retirement, but I will devote myself to my studies in keeping with his wishes.”  


Professor Jeong’s valedictory address and retirement speech were held next, during which Professor Jeong said, “Current generations call life in Korea, ‘Hell Joseon,’ and I think it is sad for them to have trouble in their lives due to various things.” He continued, saying, “I have never bemoaned my current situation and have tried to live positively even though I, too, suffered from the hardships of life due to living with my widowed mother because my father passed away before I was born.” He elaborated on those words with, “I hope you do not confine yourselves to trivial matters and do not live a life full of regret about your repeated failures.” Also, he maintained that, “It is important to develop your own ability. However, never reveal the ability. Dealing with others flexibly is a skill, and so is self-management. I hope you become students who continue to take on challenges and develop your own capacity for success.”




A digital photo album of Professor Jeong’s research achievements and photos of his entire life were arranged by the department and shown to the audience with background music, during Mrs. Lee Misuk, Professor Jeong’s wife, broke down into tears at seeing the photos of his life. The ceremony then wrapped up with time for taking group photos. 


Professor Jeong graduated from the Department of Computer Science in Seoul University and finished a Master’s degree in the Department of Computer Science at the Korea Advanced Institute for Science and Technology (KAIST) in 1978. After that, he finished a Doctoral degree of Computer Science at the University of Iowa from 1985 to 1989. After he was hired by the Department of Computer Science of Korea University in 1990, he served as manager of the Electronic Computing Institute from 1996 to 1998, and as manager of the Engineering Certification Center from 2007 to 2012. He has been working as a member of the Korea Institute of Information Security and Cryptology since 1992, and his name has been entered in Marquis Who’s Who, one of the world’s top three biographical dictionaries.
