2019 GKS for ASEAN Countries' Program

The 2019 Global Korea Scholarship (GKS) for ASEAN countries invited science and engineering students July 11 to August 14. The purpose of this program is to provide ASEAN students with in-depth academic training in science and engineering fields and valuable experiences in Korea. The training began in 2015, and Keimyung University has trained 30 ASEAN students a year since 2017 after KMU was selected for the project to train outstanding engineering and engineering students in ASEAN countries. Thirty students majoring in architecture and civil engineering from eight countries-Laos, Vietnam, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Malaysia and Cambodia-participated. The students took 120 hours of civil engineering classes at Keimyung University and also had time to experience traditional culture such as Korean history education, playing Korean traditional musical instruments, and a tea ceremony. Schools selected for the program expect to attract talented people from abroad through training.
