Pyongyang, July 30 (KCNA) -- One day in January Juche 40 (1951), President Kim Il Sung visited a factory.

The war-stricken factory was lacking technicians and skilled workers.

Being briefed on the situation of the factory he told its officials that the factory should train technicians and skilled hands by itself and that, to this end, it should have its own college.

He then indicated ways of founding a college in the factory.

He said that in the future some servicepersons, including those who had worked with the factory, would be recalled from the front and sent to universities or colleges but for the present a study-while-working system should be established in the factory.

On his instructions, a college came into being in the factory in July that year.
