New GIFT Building Opening Ceremony

The opening ceremony for the new Graduate Institute of Ferrous Metallurgy building at POSTECH was held on the 30th of June 2009. A breathtaking achievement since the Institute was conceived in late 2005. There is now no excuse for not achieving the best research in steels.
