Engineering schools combine to launch research center

The nation’s top 12 engineering schools and 15 plant construction companies yesterday opened a R&D center at Seoul National University to make it a hub for Korean engineering education, aimed at providing training for current undergraduate engineers and producing at least 100 professional engineers every year.

The Engineering Development and Research Center will offer hands-on courses, highly focused on planning and carrying out projects, while allowing credit exchanges of the courses among participating universities, including Kaist, Seoul National University and Pohang University of Science and Technology. The top students will be chosen to intern at the 15 companies, including Samsung Engineering, SK Innovation and Hyundai Heavy Industries.
