The first graduation ceremony of the faculty of physics and mathematics was held at Kim Il Sung University with splendour in December 1949 under the care of President Kim Il Sung who saw that a people’s university was built in the liberated county and paid deep attention to its development.

Kim Il Sung attended the ceremony and made a historic speech. In the speech he said that talents were by far the most precious asset in the DPRK. Kim Il Sung stressed that the graduates must not forget that genuine talents are trained through contending with difficulties and become staunch men facing any hardships fearlessly.

Kim Il Sung attached importance to the talents and put stress on the training of them, thus making the people build a new democratic Korea by themselves. Today brilliance is added to Kim Il Sung’s immortal exploits thanks to the wise leadership of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un who applies the idea of giving importance to the talents.
