On May 22, it has been announced by local media outlet Money Today that the university plans to teach about AI, big data, and cloud-based technology in the brand-new department, as they intend to begin accepting students by 2021.
However, Kim Kun-woo, the Director of the Planning and Coordination Division of the university, praised the announcement, as he stated that the world is “rapidly” changing to a blockchain and AI-based society due to the global COVID-19 crisis.

The announcement also says that several Daegu-based blockchain companies have agreed to provide training and work experience programs within the campus.
It has been analyzed that the university will implement user-friendly services, which allow cohesion between university education and academic administration, hand in hand with experts in each field.
Thus, the South Korean government continues to maintain a positive stance towards the development of the country’s blockchain industry.
