In particular, the Research Institute for Earth Resources (RIER), established in 1983, aims to integrate disciplines and colleges related to earth sciences including Geophysics, Geology, earth energy, and resources, and to conduct interdepartmental research projects and collaboration. The RIER was elected one of the key university research centers by the Ministry of Education of Korea in 2019.
