HISTORY OF AMC
A Brief History of AMC Man invented the wheel for sleds in 3200 BC. The wheel became the wagon, and the wagon became the automobile. The steam-powered car was developed and evolved into the gasoline car. For a long time, automobiles developed civilization, substituting for the feet of human beings. Daewoo Academy opened Daecheon Technical College, welcoming its first 405 freshman students in 1995 in Boryeong, Chungcheongnam-do (South Chungcheong Province) to cultivate human resources that can contribute to the development of key national industries and advance into the world. In 2004, marking the 9th anniversary of its foundation, the name of the college changed to Ajou Motor College with the single item of ‘automobile’ in order to clarify its strong will and vision for fostering technical professionals in automobile production; it took the first step in a big run of the second phase of educational foundation. As automobiles have continually changed and evolved in the last century, Ajou Motor College will constantly evolve and develop without break to become an educational institute that contributes to the development of human society.
The speed race of Ajou Motor College continues for a better tomorrow and its value
