MOU Furthers Future for
TaeguTec, Yeungnam University
TaeguTec and Yeungnam University recently expanded their memorandum of understanding to further cooperation in the research and education fields.
The revamped MOU makes it possible for TaeguTec engineers and other professionals from one of Asia’s largest metalworking companies to conduct lectures at one of South Korea’s most popular private research universities.
TaeguTec President Han Hyun-jun and Yeungnam University President Noh Seok-kyun agreed that the current MOU needed to be expanded in order for both bodies to further advance not only their relationship but also assist and equip the university’s students and professors with the right tools to better achieve a higher level of experience for their future.
Besides TaeguTec engineers, the MOU opens the door for other professionals of the company like the TaeguTec president and other high ranking executives to hold lectures in the various departments within the university.
On the other hand, the MOU makes it possible for Yeungnam University professors to share information with TaeguTec engineers about current and future relevant materials used in the metalworking manufacturing sectors.
Another dimension of the MOU paves the way for TaeguTec to use the university’s advanced mechanical engineering and materials technology facilities in order to research and develop next generation materials such as composites that would be used in the automotive, aerospace, mold and die, rail, power engineering and the various alternative energy sectors.
In its present state, Yeungnam University was established in 1967 and is currently located in the city of Daegu, South Korea.
