CTU, KP establish ties

Cebu Technological University (CTU) President  Rosein  A.  Ancheta Jr. signed the Memorandum of Understanding   to establish cooperative relationships with Korea Polytechnic (KP)III  President Kin In-Bae on May 16, 2016 at the institution’s Chuncheon Campus.

koreaThe two universities agreed to promote mutual solidarity that entails building lifelong vocational and educational system, fostering creative talent, establishing infrastructure for traditional technology transfer, institutionalizing administrative cooperation for faculty and student exchange programs, and promoting volunteer exchange programs.

Korea Polytechnic III is one of South Korea’s largest   institutions, with 32 branches (in the country). Technical-vocational trainings and courses are offered through departments such as Computer-aided Mechanics, Electronics, Industrial Design and Multimedia.


Dr. Ancheta’s   3-day trip to   South Korea   included a visit to the five branches of KPIII, and a  cultural exchange at  Songgok   University, which signed   the agreement with  Cebu Provincial Government in January this year to train students from CTU and UP-Cebu.

Dr. Choi Hoon Young, president of the Korea Philippine Educational and Cultural Exchange Corporation (KOPEC), initiated the move for Dr. Ancheta to successfully materialize the   agreement with KPIII.  CTU expects to ink another pact with Kangnam University, a private institution in Yongin, as the president is set to travel this September.

Establishing linkages, has been, by far, the most prevalent  accomplishment of Dr. Ancheta who assumed office last year. (UPO)
