Korea: Information and Communications University (ICU)
Since the mid 1990s, there has been an increasing demand for high-quality human resources with ability of leading technological innovations and developments in the field of IT. To respond to such needs, the Korean Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) and Korea's IT-related research institutes and IT industrial bodies jointly founded ICU. ICU (Information and Communications University) was founded in 1997 and continues to be supported by the Korean Ministry of Information and Communication and IT industry. There are two schools of engineering and IT-business, both of which focus on IT, and the areas of research and study include wireless communication, ubiquitous computing, bioinformatics, software engineering, and IT-management among others.
