Under the agreement, KIU and DTRO agree to work together to provide KIU’s Railway Academy students with work experience and establishe the details that will allow that to happen.
President Chung said, “Practical knowledge and work experience will help our students learn DTRO’s technical skills and know how, and it will help them become train experts who can contribute to the local community.”
CEO Hong added, “With this agreement, we will support the future railway experts, offer them our expertise, and share relevant information, so that we, as a public enterprise, can contribute to the local community.”
