The computer lab in room 501 of the College of Engineering Building 1 set up as a venue for developing engineering design capabilities 

Dankook University has joined hands with multinational engineering software solution provider Bentley Systems (Kim Ducksup, Head of the Korea Office) to foster engineering design specialists to lead the fourth industrial revolution. 

On May 19th, the two parties held an MOU signing ceremony at Beomjeong Hall on Dankook’s Jukjeon campus. At the ceremony, Bentley Systems donated 50 engineering design and analysis software programs worth 80.1 billion KRW. The software are educational solutions that can be used for engineering/analysis of digital-based 2D/3D designs that are needed for basic work in engineering fields such as civil engineering, architectural engineering and mechanical engineering. Dankook plans to use these solutions not only to improve the quality of engineering education but also to issue certificates for those who complete online courses offered through the ‘Bentley LEARN server.’ 

Bentley Systems (based in Philadelphia) is a global firm founded in 1984 that has offices in more than 50 countries with annual revenues of 600 million dollars. The company provides the world’s leading software solutions in design, construction, operations, and maintenance for large capital projects such as for roads, airports, and high-rise buildings.

The ceremony was attended by DKU President Soo-bok Kim and university officials, including Executive Vice President Soon-cheol Ahn for External Affairs, professor Seung-wan Roh, Head of the Office of External Affairs, Director Sung-han Lim of the Innovation Institute for Future Education, professor Boosik Kang, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and professor Wanjei Cho, Head of the LINC+ Education Center for Incumbents, as well as Director Ducksup Kim and Manager Yena Hong from Bentley Systems Korea.

“We will be able to step up our efforts in nurturing skilled talent and engineering design experts through this agreement,” said DKU President Soo-bok Kim, who also added that “the donated software will be used to educate students and faculty members and is sure to help strengthen their skills.”
