Presented by: Dr. James (Chin Kyung) Kim President, Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST)
Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST) is scheduled to enroll its first students in the Spring. This unique institution, built entirely with funds donated from outside the DPRK, with approval from the DPRK government is the fulfillment of the dream of one remarkable Korean American, Dr. James Kim. He is in Washington to tell the PUST story and discuss the plans for the future. It is modeled on a similar institution that Dr. Kim built in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous District of China. With plans for some 2000 students and instruction in English with foreign instructors, its existence is completely unprecedented and provides an interesting new perspective on the DPRK.
