CNU established an 'Open Campus', a career-focused program to strengthen practical skills of students. CNU collaborated with public institutions for the program and took the first step with the on-site video production lecture on October 7.

The Open Campus focuses on on-the-job training programs through cooperation with local public agencies to enhance the career-related capabilities of local university students. For the establishment of the program, CNU and the Korea Communications Agency (KCA) agreed to work together to foster regional talents and activate regional broadcasting, telecommunications, and radio industries on September 3.

On the first day of the Open Campus, the Bitmaru Broadcasting Support Center of KCA kicked off its support program by providing various equipment and manpower for the regular undergraduate courses of the Department of Communications. The class, held at the CNU Main Stadium, utilized professional equipment and facilities such as a professional industry-standard broadcasting vehicle, which is worth more than 4 billion KRW together with video cameras worth 100 million KRW, while five professional managers demonstrated the shooting and transmission process for the students. Students participated in the operation of the production and broadcasting equipment.

KCA has conducted several support programs for universities in the capital area and it was the first time to be held in one of the provinces. The equipment and staff travelled to Gwangju from Ilsan, Gyeong-gi Province, where the broadcasting center is located.
To activate this program, CNU decided to open the course during the Winter Session and will establish a new regular course for communication majors in 2020.

Professor Yoo Jong-won (Head of the Department of Communications) said, “We will proactively co-create a career-focused curriculum with public organizations to facilitate practical training for students.”
