SPIED2018 Kunsan National University Aug.17-28, Korea

Welcome to SPIED 2018

The “Summer Program for Innovative Engineering Design (SPIED) ” (should be pronounced as “speed”) provides a wonderful two-weeks experience for senior college students and master course students from China, Japan, Korea and other Asian countries. This program is mainly intended for the students having engineering knowledge in Mechanical, Electronic, Information Technology fields. In order to aim the practical innovation education the students from other fields such as, Industrial design, Economics, Human Science, Nursing and etc. will be very welcomed to attend. The students from different countries and different fields gather in one place and cross their knowledge and experiences with other participants through international team activities to learn how to create new ideas and products.
SPIED program starts with tutorial lectures by the professors from different universities in different fields to give you food of thoughts and seed for creation. The participant from different countries will be assigned to a team to begin collaborative work with others. We arrange two classes in this summer, the beginner class mainly for senior college students or the first time participants and the advanced class for master course students or ones who have attended last SPIED. In these classes, students can obtain effective innovative engineering training within two weeks. Beyond classroom learning, we also plan several fun events to make good friendship with others coming from different countries.

In addition, Gunsan area has many historical sites as well as beautiful sceneries worth visiting. Young students should study well and play well! Organizing committee of SPIED 2018 will be expecting fully motivated students to take part in the program to share precious time.
