Korea Maritime and Ocean University is a South Korea's national university for maritime study, transportation science and engineering. It is located in Yeongdo-gu in Busan.
The university was established in November 1945 after Korea had been liberated from Japanese occupation (World war II). Chinhae High Seamans School, a maritime institution with a majority of Korean students until the liberation of Korea, was re-established with Korean faculty and students under the leadership of Lee Si-hyung. The school became a national university immediately after its foundation, and was renamed Chinhae High Merchant Seamans School . After the Korean War it was merged with other similar institutions and moved to Busan. The name was changed to the National Maritime College in 1956. In 1992, the college became a university with a graduate school, and was given its current name. The university is one of the earliest and prestigious national post-secondary educational institutions in South Korea, and the only post-secondary institution that specializes in maritime sciences and engineering. The university name was changed from "Korea Maritime University" to "Korea Maritime and Ocean University" on September 1, 2013.
