UT Dallas Signs Agreement to Pursue Academic and Research Initiatives
A delegation from Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea, visited The University of Texas at Dallas on Tuesday to foster more academic and research programs between the two institutions.
Hanyang President Chong Yang Kim and UT Dallas President David E. Daniel signed a memorandum of understanding in the McDermott Suite before an audience of Hanyang University administrators and deans from four UT Dallas schools, including the Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, the School of Management, the School of Arts & Technology and the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
"The future belongs to collaboration," said President Daniel. "This MOU gives us the opportunity to have another partnership in a part of the world that is doing so much to drive innovation and new markets in technology."
Under discussion are plans to develop a Global Communication and Leadership Institute at UT Dallas, which will provide Hanyang's students with an understanding of English and American culture. In addition, Hanyang and UT Dallas pledged to work together on research projects in nanotechnology and business management. The next step is to finalize an agreement to be sent to the UT System for approval.
"This collaboration goes beyond education," said President Kim. "It can have an impact on the society. Favorable relations between institutions of higher education can bring about friendships between nations."
Hanyang University is one of the top private universities in South Korea with a highly regarded engineering school.
UT Dallas has another agreement in place with the South Korean government as part of a private-public research consortium called Texas Fusion. The consortium is devoted to commercializing research and development of nanoelectronics, Members of Texas FUSION, which comes from Future Semiconductor Commercialization, include a group of South Korean electronics companies, Samsung Austin Semiconductor, Military Tech LLC, UT Austin, UT Dallas, UT Southwestern Medical Center and UT Tyler.
