Kim Chaek University of Technology, strengthend and developed under the energetic leadership and warm care of the peerless great men, is fully demonstrating its might as the highest institution of the country’s scientific and technical education and the pedigree establishment for training talented scientists and technicians.
Thanks to the personal initiative and guidance of President
In its early days the college had nine faculties including those of mining geology, mechanical engineering, metal engineering and electrical engineering, with over 80 teachers and 1500-odd students.
From the outset the college made remarkable achievements in the educational work, and especially its students took an active part in an anti-illiteracy campaign and patriotic work.
During the Korean war
And foreseeing victory in the war he took a revolutionary measure to have the former students fighting on the frontline return to their universities to resume their studies. It was an unprecedented measure in the history of war.
He visited the college situated in Kalhyon-ri, Kodok-myon, Jongju County (Wolhyon-ri, Unjon County today), North Phyongan Province on June 16, Juche41(1952) making his way through the powder smoke. He then clarified the ways and means to improve its educational and research work during the war and showed deep concern for its educational condition and the students’ life.
When the national economy was growing very fast, the work for training technical personnel failed to keep up with the reality. The President saw through the situation and gave on-the-spot guidance to the college on March 9, Juche49(1960).
Saying that it should combine theoretical education with practical training in order to train more technical personnel more quickly as required by the developing national economy, he stressed the need to teach students in such a way that they could fully display their abilities as engineers soon after graduating from the college.
True to the field instructions of President
And it strove to thoroughly overcome bourgeois revisionism in the education and scientific work and establish the Party’s monolithic ideological system.
The college’s teachers and researchers including Kim Tong Sin and Kwak Tae Hong completed valuable research projects greatly conducive to the socialist industrialization.
On a visit to the college on October 2, Juche57(1968) the President said it should help develop the electronic industry and the production of light metals, pure metals and alloy steel to develop the industry of the country one step farther relying on the already laid industrial foundations, and continue to push ahead with the work of making students revolutionary.
And saying that it should continue to thoroughly establish Juche in all fields, he illuminated the relevant ways and means.
To carry out the instructions of the President, the college increased the number of students, set up new faculties and research institutes and vigorously did scientific research.
This led to success in developing a Paektusan computer, hydraulic mechanized stope supports and other things of practical value for the development of the national economy.
In May Juche77(1988) President
In those days, the university actively conducted research projects for pioneering the fields of advanced science and technology while channelling due efforts into strengthening political and ideological education.
In the 1980s, scientists of its Robotics Institute made a numerically-controlled wire cut electro-discharge machine for the first time in the country, which gave great pleasure to Chairman
Teachers and researchers of the Communications Faculty rendered great benefits to the country by manufacturing a parabolic antenna of the International Satellite Communication Centre with elaborate designs, calculations and new ideas.
And by making efforts to develop the country’s computer technology and actively extend its application range, the university completed multimedia program presentation “Koryo Ceramics, Treasure of the East” and multimedia search program “Korean National Food.”
On May 8, Juche82(1993) President
Amid the deep concern of President
Greatly inspired by the field guidance of Chairman
Teachers and researchers including An Hyong Gil, Ju Hyok and Jon Pong Chan of the College of Information Science and Technology, Kim Tong Gwon of the IT Institute and Jong Il Chol of the Automation Engineering Faculty pushed ahead with scientific research in lots of factories and enterprises including the Taedonggang Combined Fruit Farm, and thus made a great contribution to the modernization and automation of the national economy.
The respected Comrade
He saw to it that more similar houses for teachers and researchers of the university were built down the bank of the river and that a street to be newly built on the riverside was named Mirae Scientists Street. And he gave vital instructions for scientific research work and training of talents saying that the university is entrusted with an important mission in building a powerful socialist nation.
Under the warm care of the respected Comrade
And 690-odd teachers and researchers also moved to new apartments on the aforesaid new street on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea in October, Juche104(2015).
The respected Comrade
Amid the great concern of the Party and State Kim Chaek University of Technology is fully discharging its mission and duty in the educational work for training more academic and practical talents who can surely turn the country’s economy into the knowledge-based one and raise science and technology of the country upto the world standard.
