CNU has expanded academic and employment support programs to focus on fostering the next generation of academics and started recruiting new students for its graduate programs.

According to CNU Graduate School (Dean: Professor Baek Jang-sun), it has established more than 10 graduate programs of integrated master's and doctoral programs to foster manpower in cutting-edge technologies. The newly established programs include the Department of Artificial Intelligence Convergence, ICT Convergence System Engineering, Convergence Smart Agriculture, and the Smart City Cooperation Program.

This is to take the lead in the fourth industrial revolution and post COVID-19 era, which entail the necessity for advancement of cutting-edge technologies and meeting the demands of graduate students. It is a part of the consistent efforts of CNU for high-tech education from undergraduate to graduate programs.
In addition, CNU has secured an improved environment for future academics as 24 educational research projects (teams) were selected for the fourth stage of the BK21 project governed by the Ministry of Education. It is ranked seventh in the country and third among national universities in the number of selected projects. Additionally, CNU will receive governmental funds for “Graduate School Innovation.” CNU graduate programs applied for a 2 billion KRW national budget to spur the programs to nurture generations of new academics through institutional reform.
Furthermore, CNU also decided to actively support the employment of graduate students, which has been considered a major concern for those who are interested in entering graduate school. The university will continue the operation of its job support center for graduate students, which was introduced last year, a first among national universities. Also, CNU improved following programs to facilitate the employment of graduate students: ▲ Online employment counseling ▲ Special lecture on customized self-introductions ▲ “Career-up” mentoring for graduate student by those who are successfully employed ▲ Intensive online NCS classes and trial tests for graduate students.

CNU accepted applications for the graduate programs taking place during the 2021 Spring semester until October 21 through the Internet. CNU programs recruited 1,552 in total, including 977 for master's programs, 432 for doctoral programs, and 143 for integrated master's and doctoral programs.
