Pusan National University (PNU), also called Busan National University, is one of ten national Universities in South Korea. Located mainly in Busan (or Pusan), the university's English name is a translation of its former Korean name, "Gungnip Pusan Daehakgyo" (국립 부산 대학교), but has since dropped "national" from its Korean moniker.

It was founded as a two-year college in 1946 and became a regular four year university in 1953.[3]

This University is known for the second best national University in korea, after Seoul National University. Especially, famous for Mechanical Engineering department.
