The Federation of Korean Information Industries (FKII) has appointed Principal Lecturer, PhD (Admin.), Lic.Sc. (Tech.) Tero Nurminen from Metropolia to its Advisory Board as an International Advisor until June 2018.
Nurminen’s role is to develop cooperation between the information technology industry and universities in order to increase mutual exchange of trainees between Metropolia and the Korean IT industry.
"For years, Metropolia has had small-scale trainee exchanges with Korea. This year, five Korean students have been trained in a project team in Espoo, Finland. The renewed agreement between FKII and Metropolia is a letter of intent, which stipulates an exchange of information and a reciprocal exchange program for student internships. We will develop this cooperation in the FKII Advisory Board during my term of office", says Nurminen.
Tero Nurminen has worked for various positions in the Finnish IT industry for almost twenty years, after which he worked in Espoo-Vantaa Technical University of Applied Sciences (EVTEK) and continued in a merge to Metropolia UAS in 2008. At the moment, he works as a Principal Lecturer and Team Leader in Metropolia.
"I have worked in various positions in Universities of Applied Sciences e.g. as a Principal Lecturer, Director of English Degree Programs, Competence Area Manager and a Team Leader. I believe that this wide industry and academic experience, my doctoral dissertation on the international forms of cooperation between the information technology industry and universities as well as my experience with Korean universities led to my selection as a member of the FKII International Advisory Board”.
