The education and research goals of the department is to promote the production of functional plant resources such as tobacco and ginseng, increase value added and industrialize functional plants through development of new materials.

Established in 1968, the department has been re-organized in 2005 to better respond to the market’s demand for new functional food or substances. Starting in the academic year of 2014, a systematic study, research and development on medicinal plant resources traditionally used became the focus as well as the education of experts in the area.

Based on basic theory, students are taught both theory and practice of functional plants, its farming, processing, categorization, analysis, experimentation and physiological effects. Research institutes or organizations closely related to the department allow us to implement joint programs between academia and industry to deliver to students a curriculum that reflects the market’s needs in real time.
