Seoul National University will work with Georgial Institute of Technology on joint research, according to a ceremony held on the 17th (Tuesday). Georgia Institute of Technology Vice President Yves Berthelot visited Seoul National University on the 17th and met with Seoul National University’s Vice Dean of Education Chang Gu Byun.
According to this joint agreement, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering doctoral students can take classes for 1-2 years at Georgia Institute of Technology to receive joint degrees. After undergoing joint review on the thesis, students can receive joint degrees; thus, minimizing the time needed to acquire degrees.
Georgia Institute of Technology is 6th on the US News & World Report rankings for graduate schools. This is a great international partnership between the two schools.
Dean Hae Chu Choi from Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering stated, “We are proud to work with the world-renowned Georgia Institute of Technology and look forward to progressive work.”
This joint agreement was made possible by Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering’s BK21 Plus project. If students go abroad for training or education, they can be supported in part by the BK21 plus project funds.

□ On the morning of the 13th (Friday) at Seoul National University’s meeting room on the 2nd floor of Building 39, Seoul National University’s School of Engineering (Dean Kun Woo Lee) and Korea Industrial Complex Corporation (President Nam Hoon Kang) met to talk about a new project to resolve technical issues.
□ They agreed to cooperate on the following issues: △ Cluster activation for the project’s cooperation △ Various network and enterprise support △ Technical support from advisors to enhance competitiveness △ Technology development and growth support △ Technical education and training to increase employee skills △ Support from Seoul National University (Personnel, Equipment, etc).
□ Seoul National University’s School of Engineering will provide superior talents (Professors, Students, Researchers, etc) toward helping out in this cooperation.
□ Seoul National University’s School of Engineering will help the 6,000 clusters nation-wide to fix problems. This upcoming March, the SNU Engineering Consulting Center will help fix these problems facing small- and medium-sized companies.
□ Seoul National University’s School of Engineering Dean Kun Woo Lee stated, “This cooperation will allow the great skills available at SNU to help innovative technology being developed at clusters nationwide. We believe it will lead to great success.”

□ Seoul National University (President Yeon Chun Oh) and Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy (Minister Sang Shik Yoon) attended opening ceremony of EDRC on June 11, 2014 (Wednesday)
* Attendees: Secretary Jae Hong Kim, President Yeon Chun Oh, 100 company representatives
ㅇEDRC is a joint project between companies and the engineering university to solve engineering problems
ㅇSeoul National University, Korea University, Yonsei University, Pohang University, KAIST, FAU-Busan, and 12 universities (27 Professors, 200+ students), Samsung Engineering, GS Construction, SK Innovation, LG Chemicals, Hyundai Heavy Industries, Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine and 15 companies
* More companies and universities can be involved in the future
□ $60 million into plant business research since 2010 R11; this year’s goal is $70 million but there may be shortcomings
ㅇThe thesis centered Korean education should be changed so that experience and skills are put to better use
* S Engineering Officer “We put a lot of money into training master’s and doctoral graduates so if EDRC’s training goals are met, it will be a great help to engineering companies.”
□ EDRC will ⅰ)provide engineering researchers that can conduct effective research, ⅱ)develop engineering curriculum, ⅲ)allow Korea to become a top engineering hub
① Engineering talent fostering with training
ㅇStudents will able to assess their skills through EDRC projects and assessments in engineering skills- they will be able to receive certificates
ㅇStudents with certificates can easily acquire internships at foreign and domestic engineering companies and AMEC
* P University President “EDRC Certification is not a transcript or recommendation, but will prove the student’s skills and education levels”
② Active participation in industry projects
ㅇ20 projects annually by EDRC with education programs and offline support
ㅇBenchmarking of overseas education centers to develop an engineering curriculum that will lead to successful researchers and students
* H Heavy Industries Officer: Overseas Education spends considerable amount of money that we cannot afford at this time; even large companies have trouble following that standard
③ Develop a world-renowned Korean Engineering Hub
ㅇProject management know-how, information on fostering workers in a joint DB to improve information sharing between government, research center, universities, and companies in a networking scheme
* Annual Research Review research through R26; Improve education results
* Forums and joint workshops scheduled for attending researchers and CEOs
□ Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy President Jae Hong Kim wants to improve technical skills and foster training of researchers through EDRC
ㅇAdditionally, the thesis centered education will be changed to problem solving education
ㅇSeoul National University President Yeon Chun Oh wants to develop the EDRC global engineering research center that is better than the UK’s CPSE and US’s TEES
* US(TEES: Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station) Texas A&M energy and related area research with 10 other universities
* UK(Imperial College, CPSE: Center for Process Systems Engineering) ‘89 Imperial College London Engineering Research Development

The Ministry of Science, ICT, and Future Planning’s “Future Pioneering Technology Project” led to profitable results. A research center led by Seoul National University’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Professor Jung Hoon Lee, called CMIPs research group, worked with Biois Corp (Sung Chun Kim) and Asan Hospital (Heung Bum Oh) to develop an in-vitro diagnostic system for breast cancer that was contracted out to an overseas hospital for $2 million.
The CMIPs research group developed in-vitro diagnostics products for cancer and other chronic diseases for a $2 million contract with American companies Care Excel, Memorial Hermann Hospital, etc. With the support from the “Future Pioneering Technology Project,” they were also able to acquire patents for their technology.

Fish Gill Wrinkle Secrets Revealed by Joint Research Team by Seoul National University Professor Ho Young Kim and Seogang University Professor Won Jeong Kim
The wrinkles on fish gills improve the efficiency of oxygen exchange, revealed a Korean research team. Professor Ho Young Kim from Seoul National University’s Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering along with Professor Won Jeong Kim from Seogang University’s Mechanical Engineering stated on the 2nd that they found the secrets of fish gill wrinkle shapes.
According to the research data, fish gills increase the surface area that comes into contact with flowing water, and improves the oxygen exchange. However, if the distance between wrinkles is too small, it is difficult for water to pass the fish gills and makes it difficult for oxygen exchange. Therefore, the distance between wrinkles must be perfect so that there are no difficulties.
