Hanyang University was selected for the "Industrial Innovation Talent Growth Support" Project. This is a battery-specialized human resource development project that has emerged as a generation growth engine.
According to a report by the Ministry of Industry and Electronic Newspaper on August 12th, 5 universities, including Hanyang University, were selected in a national project designed to train master's and doctorate-level professionals for future businesses and major industries.
This is the first time the government has taken the lead in training battery specialists. The project will last for the next 5 years with 10 billion won in state funds to be spent on the project.
About 10 people per participating school, a total of 100 people will be fostered as battery professionals and will strengthen their global competitiveness. In addition, the labor shortage in the industry is expected to be solved as well.
Of the 5 universities participating in the project, Hanyang University, Ulsan Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), and Chonnam National University will train in Battery Core Materials, while SungKyunKwan University and Chungnam National University will train personnel in Battery Design and Altitude Analysis.
Through this training, professionals with master's and doctorate degree from LG Chem, Samsung SDI, SK Innovation, POSCO Chemical, EcoPro, and L&F will be linked to employment related to domestic batteries and materials.
An association official mentioned that "while the domestic battery industry is growing rapidly, the infrastruscture for training professional human resources is by far insufficient." The association official also added that "since there have been no departments related to batteries, we plan to create a virtuous cycle supported by college students who want to get a job in the battery field by utilizing systematic curriculum for each university."
