Until the early 1960's, the city of Ulsan was a fishing port and agricultural center. However, as the Ulsan Industrial District began to build up in 1962, it emerged as an industrial center of Korea. The city became home to major industrial plants and factories, which include oil refineries, chemical plants, and the multinational Hyundai Corporation's ship building and automobile production factories.
The Ulsan International Summer Program is designed for foreign students who want to learn Korean culture, history, society, and business as well as Korean language. The program consists of a broad range of classes and excursions. Participants visit a wide variety of historical and cultural sites around Ulsan and other cities in Korea. On top of the excursions, the program includes field trips to industrial complexes as well.
