New Uzbekistan – Korean faculty for training IT-specialists
The joint faculty for Development and maintenance of control devices has been opened in Tashkent Professional College of Information Technologies (TPCIT).
This is a joint educational project implemented by TPCIT and Bucheon University (South Korea).
According to TPCIT Director Dmitriy Lee, training in Development and maintenance of control devices will allow in the near future to prepare a new generation of IT specialists with the latest knowledge and skills. Taking into account the scale of reforms implemented in Uzbekistan in all areas, the need for development of their own high-tech projects and preparing a new generation of qualified programmers is growing.
The curriculum of the new faculty is based on the educational methodical material of Bucheon University. The first two years the students will study in Tashkent. Here they will master special subjects and simultaneously study in-depth Korean and English. For the activities of the new faculty, an entire college floor was allocated, which was repaired and equipped with the most modern equipment. Laboratories for practical training were equipped by South Korean partners. At the same time, the appearance and equipment of the faculty were selected following the example of Bucheon University.
After completing the second course, students who have successfully passed all special disciplines and received a certificate of the third level of proficiency in Korean will receive a state diploma of a local sample and will continue their studies in the third year of undergraduate education at Bucheon University. Unqualified students will be issued only a state diploma of a local sample, confirming their possession of a specialty and giving the right to work by profession.
There is a special department at Bucheon University that helps graduates with employment. The university works closely with many large corporations and companies interested in qualified personnel. Therefore, all students who come to study from Uzbekistan will also be assisted in finding a job.
