With the digital transformation accelerating across many industries including healthcare, medical, biotech, finding digital experts equipped with the right practical skills in the new fields, such as artificial intelligence (AI), has become a pressing task.
KT, a leader in strengthening Korea’s AI competitiveness and cultivating human resources in the digital sector, has announced that it will work with Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) to raise AI experts together.
Based on this partnership, the KT-POSTECH AI Expert Programme will enroll its first class of students in 2023. The programme is a full-time master’s degree curriculum linked with job opportunities.
In the second half of this year, the programme will begin accepting applications from (prospective) candidates who have completed their bachelor’s degrees at home and abroad. Based on a customized curriculum, the students will be taught key areas of artificial intelligence, including voice recognition, voice synthesis, natural language processing, graphics, and computer vision.
KT will provide registration and tuition fees and research stipend for the entire period of the programme for the enrolled students. Upon graduation, the students will work as researchers at research institutes including the KT Institute of Convergence Technology.
