Korea Polytechnics Asan IoT Information Security Department is running a high tech course for college graduates under 39 who have not found a job yet. The course opened in 2019 and lecturers and professors help students equip with knowledge and ability of IoT cloud, virtual security, network, and many more.
The department signed MoU with numerous information and security companies including Winseu, Nexg and Noone and is set to sign soon with Axgate, Halos and KBI. Successful students are given opportunity to work at these companies.
"The high tech course is introduced to foster manpower needed for the coming age of the 4th industry revolution. Everybody with a degree can apply for the course and the tuition fee is 100% paid by the government" says the department dean Jang Dong-hee.
"Because the purpose of the course is to help students get a job, the curriculum is more focused on practice than theory or unnecessary subjects. Successful students normally can obtain certificates within 10 months of the course. It is notable that all first phase students got a permanent position after internship at various companies" says professor Park Young-gil. Student Jeon Hee-tae says "I found the equipment actually used in the field a great help. The course is focused more on practical side and I could be able to use what I learned at the company straightway."
Statistics show that 89% of the first phase students got a job after successfully completing the course. As the second phase draw near the end, the department is recruiting the third phase students until December 11. The interview is on December 16 and the 14 finalists are to be announced on December 21.
