The university is made up of 12 colleges with a total of six schools, 63 departments, and six graduate schools. There are 29 research institutes that serve as adjunct centers for the faculty research activities. Other supporting organizations include the University Libraries, the University Museum, the Center for Research Instruments and Experimental Facilities, and the University Computer Center.

CBNU won an "Excellent University" award from the Korean Ministry of Education (1997) in fields such as "educational reform in the information sector", "reform of school affairs", and "educational reform for extending student's freedom to choose his or her major field". CBNU is the only university that has been awarded the specialized program grant in the semiconductor and information technology area by the government of Korea. As an outcome, the College of Engineering won approximately US$25,000,000 from the government for the training of quality manpower, as required in industry, by providing experience-based programs (1994–1999). The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science has been awarded the Brain Korea 21 program with an annual multi-million dollar grant, while the Physics and Pharmacy research teams have won research grants.

The Health, Medicine, and Life Science Program at Osong, near Cheongju, will become the center for health, medicine and life science related government offices, industries and research institutes. CBNU will be a major element of this enterprise.

The Korea Science and Engineering Foundation (KOSEF) designated the Center for Advanced Horticultural Technology Development and Research as a Regional Research Center. KOSEF annually donate approximately $1,000,000 in grant money to the Center.

The super-speed computer network (ATM) will enable all students to get personal internet IDs. Most classrooms are equipped with multimedia devices, which include PCs, LCD projectors, and data viewers.
