Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST) is North Korea’s first privately funded university. It is founded, operated, and partly funded by associations and people outside the country. PUST was jointly planned and constructed by forces from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea, along with contributions from groups and individuals from other nations, in particular China and the United States. Originally scheduled for launch in 2003, the project was delayed for several years and began operations in October 2010.
