Quote:North Korean universities open new majors to focus on science tech education
September 03, 2019
SEOUL, Sept. 3 (Yonhap) -- Dozens of universities in North Korea established new majors focusing on science and technology this year, the North's main newspaper said Tuesday.
According to the Rodong Sinmun, 85 new majors opened at 37 universities nationwide, including those in the fields of medical equipment, information security, nano-material engineering and robot engineering.
The newspaper also said preparations are under way to open 11 new high schools specialized in information technology in each province, as well as to designate one middle school each in every city and county to focus on technology education.
"This holds great significance in that it enables nurturing talents necessary for economic development in the regions and other sectors," the Rodong Sinmun said.
In a similar article, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said, "Educational system of professional technology was further strengthened through the combination and arrangement of some colleges of professional technology."
"Technical senior middle schools in various fields were established throughout the country last year and this year to train students into talents mastering at least one modern technology along with the secondary general knowledge," it said. "Senior middle schools" in North Korea are comparable to high schools in South Korea.
North Korea has been stressing the importance of improving its science and technology levels, revising its constitution in April to state that "science and technology power is the nation's most important strategic resource."
The articles came as North Korea kicked off a national conference of teachers in Pyongyang to discuss the country's future education policy direction.
On Monday, senior party officials urged the participants at the conference to train more "talents to make contributions to the development of national science and technology," according to the KCNA.
DPRK Will Always Emerge Victorious as It Has Enormous Self-defence Capability
Sep. 2, Juche 108 (2019) Monday
A series of news upon the development and completion of weapons of Juche demonstrating the powerful military muscle of socialist Korea is infusing the Korean people with greater pride and honor of being citizens of a powerful nation and confidence in and optimism about sure victory.
It is the greatest victory ever achieved by the Workers’ Party of Korea and the Korean people since the foundation of the DPRK that they gained a strong treasured sword for preserving peace by dauntlessly weathering unprecedented ordeals and difficulties. It is also an auspicious great event to be celebrated for all ages, as it provided to posterity sure guarantee for the most dignified and happiest life in the world.
A series of successes being witnessed in bolstering the capabilities for self-defence helps the people bear deeper in their minds that their country is an impregnable fortress no one dare attack.
The powerful defence capabilities and war deterrent the DPRK has secured by overcoming harsh trials and difficulties are not for threatening other countries but for averting aggression and war by the imperialists, completely ending military threat and thus preserving peace and stability of the Korean peninsula and creating an environment favorable for building an economic giant.
The signal successes being achieved one after another in bolstering the country’s defence capabilities are entirely a valuable fruition of the wise guidance of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

What happened to Iran? Back in 2012, some member of IMF were bragging that the space program of the IRI was more advanced than that of North Korea.
Today, we see that Trump in his tweet, claims responsibility for the sabotage of not only this Safir-e-Nahid space launch, but for all space and nuclear sabotages that have struck Iran for years.
It is no secret that by allowing some German company to sell critical hardware to Iran, the U.S. is flooding Iran with faulty components, responsible for notorious fatal failures.
North Korea also imports many components from China, but these are reliable unlike the planted Germans' one.

According to the videos of the Nahid-1 satellite, Faulhaber equipment has been spotted in the accurate microcontrollers used for opening the solar cells array panels.
Based in Stuttgart, Faulharber company is involved in various fields including optimum drive system, Microdrive, linear motors, and some industrial aerospace equipment.
