It is a transition period we are living in; terms like the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’, ‘artificial intelligence’, and ‘Blockchain’ are all new, but all the while familiar, and they seem to be undoubtedly important as we near the future. Most notably, the Blockchain syndrome is sweeping over universities. Hanyang also recently founded the Department of Blockchain Computing and Cryptoeconomics, recruiting its first new students last month.

This graduate school aims to train students particularly in the fields of Blockchain and cryptocurrency. In order to graduate, students are to take classes for a total of 26 credits during the period of four semesters. 20 professors from various different majors, such as the College of Engineering, College of Business, the Graduate School of Law, and the College of Medicine will lead these classes. 

A particular thing about the major is that they offer two major tracks for courses in education: the technology track and business track. Classes for the technology track focus on the technological aspects of Blockchain, such as in programming and coding. Classes for the business track focus on the business studies including FinTech marketing and business start-up. Students are welcome to choose classes of any track that suit their needs to build on their career.

The recruitment of this newly-founded department was held from December 21st to the 27th. The entrance examination consisted of an application evaluation and interviews. A member of the College of Engineering Administration Team 5, Ha Dong-wan, explained, “in order to assess students’ abilities from multiple dimensions, we assess not only their grades and research plan, but also their work experience, corporate philanthropic activities, and various other data.”

Following the foundation of Blockchain laboratory in September, Hanyang’s establishment of the Department of Blockchain Computing and Cryptoeconomics directly reflects the amount of promising attention the field is receiving. “Blockchain is expected to play a central role in this future industry,” says Ha. “Hanyang University, with the foundation of the department, anticipates facilitating these related studies and pave the road for future Blockchain experts."
