The higher school will specialize in training personnel in the field of artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and computer science.

Within the framework of the project, the university will be equipped with modern laboratory equipment from Korea, and students will be multilingual – they will study in English and Korean, fluent in Russian and Kazakh.

At the event, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Republic of Kazakhstan Sayasat Nurbek noted the importance of the project.

"President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev notes the development of artificial intelligence technologies as a strategically important direction for the future of the country. The use of artificial intelligence technologies requires special attention. Therefore, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education immediately started implementing educational programs in this area.

The opening of the SeulTech Higher School of Artificial Intelligence at Korkyt-Ata University will serve as an effective impetus for the formation of human capital in the field of IT technologies, mutual exchange of experience and scientific developments, as well as for further promotion of bilateral cooperation between Korea and Kazakhstan in the field of higher education. I also want to inform you that in the short term it is planned to open a branch and a two-degree program, as a result of which graduates will be able to receive a diploma from SeulTech and Korkyt Ata Kyzylorda University," he said.

It should be noted that since September 2023, the language training of first-year students enrolled in IT specialties and selected for training under the SeulTech program has begun at the Korkyt Ata Kyzylorda University. Now they are studying general education subjects and taking accelerated language courses. In the future, students and faculty of the university will be able to go to Seoul for a scientific internship and study under the academic mobility program and joint educational programs, and teachers from SeulTech will be invited to Kyzylorda to transfer unique knowledge and technologies.

Seoul National University of Science and Technology is the National University of Korea, which was founded in 1910. The university has about 15 thousand students in 23 faculties. The history of the reburial of the remains of the national hero of Korea, General Hong Bom Do, who lived in Kyzylorda for many years, contributed to the opening of the Higher School.
