The National Institute of International Education (NIIED) and the Korean Ministry of Education have selected Dongseo University, Kangwon National University, Chonnam National University and Chonbuk National University as host institutions for this year’s GKS program for African and Latin American undergraduates.
The GKS program at DSU will be in the field of ICT Convergence.

The training will last five weeks, from July 8 to August 9, 2019. All fees will be covered by the program for the students from Latin America, including airfare, dormitory expenses, tuition and insurance.

The students who received GKS training at DSU in 2018 were selected for excellence for their project called Multi-model User Interface with Sensors, which they presented at an event showcasing project results.
