[Performance]Hanyang University Selected in the National Project "Battery Specialists Training"

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."

[Performance]Hanyang University Had the 4th Highest Number of Students Pass the 2019 Tax Accountant Exam

On June 11, the University News Network announced the status of the universities with the highest rate of students passing the 2019 Tax Accountant Exam. From Hanyang University, 25 students passed the 1st exam while 25 students passed the 2nd exam. While these student statistics have been announced over the years, this is the first time the numbers of examinees from each university have been specified. Hanyang University's ratio of successful applicants for the 1st exam was 16.9% (25 people / 148 people), and on the 2nd exam it was 32.3% (77 people / 239 people). The number of successful applicants by univeristy data was provided by the Human Resources Development Service of Korea through information gathered during the exam application process when applicants had to enter which school they were from. The Tax Accountant Exam, just like all the other exams for specialized jobs in Korea, requires a 1st and 2nd exam. Both the 1st and 2nd exams use an absolute scale system, where the applicants must get at least an average of 60 points, and 40 points for each subject. However, while the 1st exam can be passed according to the absolute scale system because usually there are fewer successful candidates than the fixed minimum number for the final selection, there is quite a large number of people that still pass the test despite receiving disqualifying scores. Additionally,there has been an issue with the 2nd exam being insufficient to judge the quality of universities. This is because of the fact that the majority of applicants that are taking the 2nd exam graduated a long time ago. Considering this fact, it can be said that the 1st exam is a better index to measure the effectiveness of the universities. ▲ [Contributed by] 2020. 6. 11th University News Network Article Last year, the Human Resources Development Service of Korea announced the list of 37 universities that have had the most people pass the exam during the past 10 years, from 2009 to 2018.

[Performance]Four Graduates of Hanyang University are Amongst the 70 New Law School Prosecutors for 2020

Among the 70 new prosecutors in 2020, four were undergraduate students from Hanyang University, placing Hanyang as the sixth-highest among other Korean universities, and five were graduate students from Hanyang University’s School of Law, the fifth-highest amongst other domestic law schools. On May 11th, the Ministry of Justice newly appointed 70 people who passed the 9th bar exam from the School of Law as prosecutors. This year marks the first time that more than 70 law school graduates-turned prosecutors have been newly appointed since 2012 when 42 people passed the first bar exam. This is due to the sharp decrease in the number of graduates from the Judicial Research and Training Institute. According to The Law Journal on the 18th, which published an analysis regarding the newly picked prosecutors, Seoul National University and Yonsei University had the largest number with 13, followed by Korea University with 12. Sungkyunkwan University and Ewha Woman's University were tied at 4th with five students each. Hanyang University and Sogang University tied for sixth with four students each. Also, after analyzing the newly appointed prosecutors coming from law schools, Pusan National University’s School of Law topped the list with nine students. Pusan National University’s School of Law ranked ninth with only two students last year but jumped to first place this year. Korea University’s School of Law (8 students) and Sungkyunkwan University’s School of Law (7 students) took the top three spots. Hanyang University’s School of Law had only three students appointed last year, but as the number increased to five this year, it rose to a joint fifth place with Kyung Hee University’s School of Law. Out of the 70 newly hired prosecutors, 41 (58.6%) were women, a sharp increase from last year (38.1%, 21 people). By age group, those who were in the 30-31 year-old group accounted for the largest portion with 27.1%, followed by the 28-29 year-old group with 25.6%, and the 32-33 year-old group with 15.7%. There were 22 (31.4%) prosecutors that majored in law for their undergraduate degree, while more than 60% were non-law majors. On the other hand, the Ministry of Justice announced that it had selected qualified candidates based on the results of personality tests, third-phase competency evaluations, and organizational competency evaluations in order to verify the candidates' in-depth public ethics, ethical awareness, balanced perspective and human rights awareness through document screening and working-level records in order to verify their academic performance and professionalism. The newly appointed prosecutors will receive intensive and substantial training such as but not limited to theory and practice of criminal law, prosecution investigation, lectures on investigative techniques, evaluation of working records, ethics education specifically for prosecutors, and working-level settlement of the frontline office (2 months), and will then carry out their duties as prosecutors.
