A partnership with two universities in South Korea is bringing students to Pittsburg State to explore technology, manufacturing, and business, as well as culture.

Last summer, a group from Gyeongsang National University spent a month in an internship/cooperative experience program in cooperation with the College of Technology.

It was the fourth year for the program, funded by a grant provided by the South Korean government, said Norman Philipp, the PSU instructor who facilitates the program with help from the Intensive English Program and regional companies.

Students partnered with the companies to find solutions for challenges in management, engineering, or production.

β€œIt is very different here, to see the working conditions and how a company operates,” said student Sohyeon Baek. β€œI am learning a lot and am very happy to be here.”

A group of 40 students from SeoulTech also came to campus for an immersive learning program through Kelce College of Business and PSU Intensive English.
