Our acronym, GIST, not only stands for Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, but GIST can also communicate our values. GIST aims to take the lead in technological advancement through scientific research, and innovative thinking in accordance with global standards. The red color of the first pillar stands for 'dynamic, passion, strength, and progressive spirit'. The gray color of other pillars stands for 'self-control'. The red color serves as a reminder of the color of all GIST buildings, especially that GIST is the representative scientific and technological educational institution in Gwangju.
