SP!ED is a multinational-team based active-learning program designed for undergraduate and graduate students from Japan, China and Korea to stay and work together on planning, designing, production, andpresentation of a prototype mechatronics and robotic system which is proposed by each team. Combining engineering design technique with the ability to identify problems from a multi-disciplinary perspective, this program provide you a sense of achievement, in a team environment, to undergo the process of drawing your dream as a concept, designing and creating it as a prototype. Let’s deepen mutual understanding and build an invaluable friendship over the border through collaborative work and a summer camp!
