YU (President CHOI Oe-chool) was selected as the university to manage “Venture Startup Academy” project of the Ministry of SMEs and Startups.
“Venture Startup Academy” is a policy project to cultivate manpower of SW & content areas to lead venture enterprises. The purpose of the program is to cultivate talents to be directly input into the field of enterprises through project-based training courses. The government adopted it last year in order to solve manpower shortage for SM and startup enterprises
More than 2,200 professional talents were cultivated until last year and the same level programs are run by ten universities in metropolitan areas and nine universities in non-metropolitan areas.
YU will implement this project through a consortium with Daegu Catholic University until January, 2004. The scale of the total budget of the project is KRW 1,045 million including KRW 950 million of support by national fund.
YU has a plan to organize Venture Startup Academy Project Team (GM, Professor YOON Jong-hee) focused on the Department of Computer Engineering and to operate “development & specialization programs for big data analysis and application SW using AI.” The plan is to strengthen industry-academy cooperation with enterprises through collaboration with MAINBiz and to cultivate professional SW talents equipped with practical capability and creativity.
For this, YU Department of Computer Engineering plans to open 29 SW classes with Software Convergence College of Daegu Catholic University. The academic course is completed with acquisition of 15 or more credits and the students who completed the course will receive such benefits as KRW 4 million of scholarship, internship, and company employment connection.
Dean YOON Jong-hee of YU Department of Computer Engineering manages the project and said, “I plan to cultivate practical SW professionals for advancement of local industries by cultivating core manpower of AI/SW through this project. I expect that the foundation to develop local industries and strengthen competitiveness will be provided through organic collaboration between universities and enterprises.”
