X-ray crystallography is the study of the structures of crystallized materials. X-ray diffraction analysis is the most important technology to measure and provide the more detailed structural information. In this paper, the brief history of X-ray crystallography is introduced and its contribution to human civilization is included. The importance of X-ray crystallography in university education, particularly in general education, is discussed.

Key words: General education, X-ray crystallography, Crystal structure, Video open course
