[Student]First Try, Best Result!

To foster future leaders of unfolding automobiles market and self-driving cars, Hanyang University (HYU) hosted its 15th Smart Model Car Competition at the Olympic Gymnasium on the 14th of July. Applause of encouragement and cheers were heard here and there with shout outs of supports being made each time a team took their turn to run their cars. Of the 20 teams that made it to the final, team Future Automotive Engineering (FAE) won the first place. All five members of the team are students of the Department of Automotive Engineering: Park Sung-woo (4th year), Shin Hyun-ki (4th year), Park Soo-hyun (4th year), Byun Hyo-seok (2nd year), and Byeon Moo-kyung (4th year). Participants were required to develop an embedded control system (a smart computer system enabling machines to operate on their own) and run their cars on the track, which was readily set in the Olympic Gymnasium, waiting for the entrants to come. Each team was to bring their cars to the start line and present its ability when called upon. The missions were as follows: cars must drive in the middle of the lane, must avoid obstacles, must speed down in the school zone and go back to the original speed after leaving the zone, should be able to go over the hill, and must make curves without departing the lane. Now, ready, set, go! The finished work of team FAE, the only one to complete the whole track. (Photo courtesy of FAE) Prize of 10,000,000 given to team FAE! Unforeseen and unforgettable “None of us expected to win the competition. Since all five of us has no experience of participating in a contest like this, we thought we would barely make it to the final,” began Byun. About 100 teams were present for the preliminary round, after which 20 teams were selected for the final. Much to their surprise, when team FAE passed the preliminary round ranking the 4th place, their goal changed to complete the track and make it to the finish line in the final. What was surprising was not only the fact that they have won the competition but also that they were the only team who made it to the finish line. “We were happy with the result, of course, but at the same time, we were quite shook from such unexpected outcome. We didn’t expect to be the only team to complete the track,” remarked Byun. The most essential requisite for the car was to keep itself in the middle of the lane, not crossing over to the other or departing it. When the car was free to drive, it had to maintain its speed and make curves as the track demanded. Then at some point, school zone was marked by thick, black lines in which the car had to slow down and avoid the obstacles. Marking the end of the school zone with another set of thick black lines, the car was to go back to its original speed and finish the track, passing a hill and stopping at the finish line without bumping into the blockage. FAE’s car has successfully fulfilled all these requirements and confidently marched to the end. Sung-woo, who was the team leader, was looking for fellow students who would join his team. The members came together as one team through acquaintance, since they took the same course. The team first gathered around April, in the middle of the semester, and met up from time to time to work on their automobile. It was after the semester was over that they deeply got down to their business and invested more time on constructing the car. They even got access to the 3D printer thanks to professor Yoon Soo-kyung and tested their designs, by mapping out where each part should lie. Nonetheless, they received no particular help from any of their professors to be fair. “This course named 'Microprocessor' we took was quite helpful in a way that it taught us about the parts we used for this competition.” Byeon Moo-kyung (left), Byeon Hyo-seok (middle), Park Soo-hyun (right) Fix it till you make it “Finding the right angle of the camera, which will be the eye of the car, was one of the most difficult tasks,” recalled Park. It was crucial to adjust the camera at the perfect angle because the car has to sense and move according to what it observes. If it is too short-sighted, the car will fail to perceive the other lane and if it is too far-sighted, the car will easily depart the lane. “We had to remove and adjust the camera countless times to find the perfect spot. Everything will go into nothing if the camera fails to observe the area correctly in the first place,” explained Byeon. In addition, more than ten parts had to be replaced because they were burned during the process. If one part goes wrong, the whole thing fails to function. Therefore, it was crucial that each part maintained its good condition. Overall, the process was not so smooth, as the members struggled to “Our team name was uninteresting, our car wasn’t that flashy, and we even had to fix it until the last minute. However, our car presented the best performance and eventually became the only car that finished the whole track. This was unexpected, but we’re very happy with how it all turned out,” said the members unanimously. "Small changes and corrections lead to a big difference!"

[Student]Collective Intelligence Kicks In

“Two heads are better than one” is a phrase often used to describe a situation where a task is better carried when more than one person is involved. While some people prefer to study alone and concentrate to the full, others like to study in a group and exchange mutual help. The Smart Learning and Learning Center is running a 'Global Learning Community' program that supports community learning activities and cultural experience activities for major courses since 2014. The program, which allows 4 to 6 team members to study as well as cultural exchanges, is paid up to 500,000 won. We are actively conducting this semester, and we have looked into the Global Learning Community 7 activity, which is about a week before the final evaluation. Consistent and diligent studying Lee Ji-yeon, the principal researcher, is overseeing the overall progress. The global learning community is a program developed to develop creative learning methods and improve communication and collaboration skills through self-directed, community learning. It is also possible to develop global communication skills through exchange of learning and cultural exchange with foreign students. At the beginning of each semester, a team member who submits a detailed application plan will be selected by the Smart Teaching and Learning Center. Most students who apply for team are required to work with students who attend classes in the same major, but international students who are having difficulties in studying their major or those who want to study hard with other friends are more than welcomed to apply. The aim of the Global Learning Community Program is to provide an opportunity for Korean students and foreign students to study together in harmony and to share their knowledge and culture for better learning, obtaining mutual benefits from one another. The program intends to give a helping hand to those foreign students who are struggling to follow along with their class content due to language barrier. By having weekly meetings to review their class contents, students can stay away from procrastination and keep up with their learnings. On top of this academic pursuits, students are expected to experience different cultures from each other and broaden their cultural knowledge. Starting from this semester, supporter system has been adopted, in response to participant students’ feedback that it would be helpful to have a more thorough check-up system that manages the communication and difficulties among members of each team. There are total three assistant teachers, all of whom are graduate students. Each assistant teacher is in charge of helping students in different languages: Chinese, English, and Korean. "We have added a feedback system to support students' learning activities in depth and detail. For example, we have been using the supporter system since this semester to help foreign students understand how much they are learning, whether there is a need for learning support, or to facilitate communication between team members," commented Lee. Assistant teacher Noh Ah-young (Department of Education, Master’s Program) and one team leader, Ahn Jae-won (Division of Business Administration, 4th year) Outstanding team of exemplary work The 'Friends Management' team was conducted at the beginning of the 'Project Management' class in Business Administration. The group did not simply took the program as an opportunity for themselves to come together and help each other, but further extended to create a project in which they embraced other fellow students to join in. They created a culture exchange program where 20 students joined Korean traditional clothes hanbok experience and tea-house field trip. “When submitting the monthly report, a lot of students put the focus on what they studied and how they kept up with it. However, Ahn’s team showed innovativeness and creativity in their project and demonstrated perfectly for what this program aims to achieve,” commented Lee. Ahn’s team did a great job in bringing about a cultural exchange not only among its team members but to those outside the group, which makes its achievement even more outstanding. “This program provided me with an opportunity to get closer with people who I may have simply regarded as a temporary group project teammate.” Jeon Chae-yun chaeyun111@hanyang.ac.kr Photos by Choi Min-ju

[Student]Pop Monster, an Enterprise for University Students

“Until all 3,600,000 university students are happy” is a slogan adopted by Pop Monster, an enterprise that works to divert wasted advertisement costs to students’ benefit. Just as a monster would pop up in front of its prey and leave an unforgettable impression, Pop Monster wants to present university students with monster-like support. Choi Ji-eun (Department of Biomedical Engineering, 4th year), the founder of the enterprise, has developed the idea of acting as a link between corporates and students to create a win-win situation out of the understanding that majority of university students go through financial hard times and enormous amount of money is going into waste from advertisements. From inventing in high school to business in university When Choi was in high school, she showed extraordinary talent in inventing. In fact, her admission type to Hanyang was inventors selection. She has fostered a great interest in devising innovative ideas since she was a high-schooler, proving her talent by winning numerous awards in inventing competitions. The entries she contributed included traffic light for red-greed blind and wheelchairs for paraplegia and paralysis, both of which won her big awards. Because she decided to attend inventing classes offered by a teacher she met from one of the inventing competitions, Choi had little time to invest in her school study. This was a big concern for her parents, since she needed to put her best effort in studying as a high school student but her talent showed otherwise. "I wanted to turn what was wasted into something that was beneficial." “I knew I had to set my career path and study hard to get a high score on the Korean SAT, I was much more drawn into other things than studying. I just wanted to do what I felt like doing.” Choi neither studied for nor took the Korean SAT and devoted her time in inventing, which eventually ended up becoming her career route. Her interest and passion for inventing did not lessen a bit but grew even more ardently during her university years. In 2014, Choi entered the School of Youth Startup run by Small and Medium Business Corporation, which aims to cultivate innovative thinkers under the age 39. When applying to the school with an inventive idea as a requirement, Choi only had vague sketches of ideas for Pop Monster, but still gave it a shot. Unsurprisingly, she got accepted to the school and has been receiving training for startup ideas, preparing her to complete her startup business, Pop Monster. As a university student, she wanted to target university students as her business’s main beneficiary. Pop! Here’s your share! Since Choi wants to deal with the wasted non-targeted advertisement costs, she knew the first thing she had to do was to solidly set her target—university students—because only then the efficiency of an advertisement will improve. Thinking about what university students would like the most, she has worked with various companies to benefit both the students and the companies. One of the projects she worked on was handing out commodities of those companies to students and extracting surveys, ideas, and reviews of those items from the students in return, which could help improve those items. Positive response had been obtained from both students and companies. Pop Monster’s main role is to interact with and intervene in the relations among advertisements and its targeted audience. With some profit made from the business, she generates programs in which university students could participate and earn scholarship. Students are required to write their situation story of why they need funding and how they are going to use it. Those selected students then have to send a review to Pop Monster on how they spent the fund they have received. Themes of funding vary from transportation fee and monthly rent to back-to-school celebration and home-trip expenses. Choi is working on more projects and programs that could result in win-win situation for both companies and students. “Until all 3,600,000 university students are happy!"

[Student]My First Semester at Hanyang University

In Hanyang University (HYU), there are approximately 2500 international students, including those who came as exchange students. Every new year, more international students are coming to HYU with high hopes and expectations to further their studies and to have a new experience. This week, News H met with 3 of the new international students in this spring semester. From Pakistan, Abubakar Sharafat (Civil Engineering, Integrated Master’s-Doctor’s Program) As he has much time in Korea, Sharafat said he wants to visit as many places as he can in Korea. After graduating from his university, Sharafat wanted to continue his studies. While searching for graduate schools, Sharafat started to have an interest in Korea and HYU. “At the company I was working at after graduation, several colleagues of mine recommended Korea. They told me that Korea is highly developed in the field of Civil Engineering, and HYU is the best school in engineering studies,” said Sharafat. Besides from the fame of HYU in engineering studies, friends of Sharafat who already studied in HYU, also told positive experience they had to Shrafat. Positive experience of friends motivated him to choose the HYU. “Now, because of my recommendation, my sister will also join me in HYU, which is a good news.” “I am currently here as a scholarship student of the Pakistan government, I will be here for about 5 years, so I will have to get used to many things in Korea like the language and food,” said Sharafat. Still, Sharafat said that he was surprised to see many commonalities between the culture of Pakistan and Korea. “Soon after I came to Korea, I found out that Koreans and Pakistanis both emphasize the respect for elders. Other than that, when I went to the field trip to Damyang with other international students, we got to make Korean traditional rice snack, which is also the famous sweet treat in Pakistan, called ‘Maronda’.” From France, Guzelya Marisova (International business management, Master’s program) Some of the left things-to-do for Marisova is to study Korean hard, visit Kookiwon (National Taekwondo Institute), and Hanwok village. Marisova’s decision to come to HYU and Korea is highly relevant with her love toward taekwondo. She has been playing taekwondo for 13 years now since she was 11. When she grew older and moved to France from Kazakhstan in 2014, she won a world champion title in WASCO (World All Style Combat Organization). “I first witnessed taewondo in a demo show back in my school when I was living in Kazakhstan. As soon as I saw it, I thought it was what exactly I need, and that I could protect myself with it. Since then, coming to Korea was one of my bucket lists,” said Marisova. While learning taekwondo, she was also impressed with the Korean culture, ‘ye’ (manners and respects between people) that is permeated inside of it. Her love toward taekwondo naturally led her to learn Korean as well. Even before coming to Korea, Marisova said she was taking Korean classes. Currently in HYU as well, Marisova is taking a Korean class. “I am still in the level of a beginner, but I hope staying in Korea will help me learning it faster, to communicate in Korean fluently.” Marisova also shared how thankful she is for the kind and clear instructions of Korean professors. While Marisova is quite familiar with some culture of Korea, She said she witnessed cultural stereotype in the country. “One thing I noticed in Korea was a cultural stereotype still existing in Korea,” explained Mariova. “As I am not a white Caucasian, people generally don’t think I could be a French. It is understandable because immigration is not as widespread in Korea.” From Germany, Ildikó Brust (Business Administration, 3rd year) If she has a chance, Brust said she wants to visit DMZ one again, as far as civilians are allowed to go. Among the 3 students, Brust is the one who is having the completely new experience in HYU and in Korea. “Before coming to HYU, I absolutely knew little about Asia, which was the reason why I chose Korea. I wanted to go to a place that is completely different in every way and that gave quite a surprise to my family and friends,” said Brust. Similar to other international students, Brust was able to find out about HYU because of her friend’s recommendation. “One of my German friend told me all about the amazing experiences she had in HYU, which really led me to come to HYU.” “What I really find cool is how big and modern the campus is, it is really different from my school back in Germany. I find it very nice to see all the convenience facilities like cafeterias and coffee shops inside the campus,” said Brust. Also, in classes, Brust was amazed how participative and helpful students are. "People tend to be more individualistic in Germany, but in Korea people have a stronger sense of community. I really do appreciate how students always try to help me.” Until now, one of the most memorable place Brust went in Korea was Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). “Even before coming to Korea, I was planning to visit DMZ. Korea is the only country separated in the world now and we hear all the shocking and terrible news about North Korea. I wanted to see a little bit of that myself.” After visiting DMZ, Brust thought she would want to go there one more time, to further inside where civilians can still go. Whether it is just for a semester or more years to come, News H hope all international students to have a best experience inside HYU. Yun Ji-hyun uni27@hanyang.ac.kr Photos by Moon Hana

[Student]Experiences at Hanyang, Francesca's story

Francesca Barbieri, the student from Humanitas University, the private university at Italy dedicated to the medical sciences, participated Hanyang summer program for her medical training. She shared her remarkable experiences and memories here at Hanyang University. Prescription For Growing: Learn Skills But Especially Make Friends I would have never imagined to realize such a big project in such a short time. I found myself on the other side of the world just after a few months I started thinking about it. As I knew about the possibility of obtaining a travel grant, I applied and was then accepted by the cardiology Professor Kyung -Soo KIM. Humanitas therefore gave me the opportunity to spend more than 40 days at the Hanyang University Medical Centre, in Seoul. There, I attended the cardiology wards, outpatient visits and the cardiology research laboratory. To tell the truth, the difficulties of such an experience can be many and discouraging. But everything becomes so pleasant and worthy when you meet the right group of people. Professor Kim and his group of physicians, residents, laboratory members and students accepted me as if I had always been one of them. My family and friends were definitely far away, but I found myself in an environment in which I never felt alone, I could ask anything I needed and was given all the possible help. Trying to follow them during the working day was though, with no doubt. I used to spend between 12 and 13 hours per day in the hospital, some in the clinic, some in the laboratories. As a second year student, I felt to have a solid theoretical knowledge but it was the first time for me to approach the practical clinical environment or research designs and laboratory protocols. I arrived as a very worried student, concerned about what to expect. I came out after 40 days with a basic knowledge of the main heart diseases, how to use the laboratory equipment, how to follow an experimental research design. This was achieved thanks to the constant, careful and personal tutoring I was provided, I always had at least one physician or one researcher on my side. I came out as part of a group of friends, and this was the most surprising and precious aspect. The attention they paid to the success and profit of my experience was invaluable. As invaluable is what I have learnt. Sometimes it is unbelievable how much we can grow in such a short time. * Original article at Hunimed.edu (link)

[Student]Hanbok Beloved Worldwide

From 4th of January to 9th of January, hanbok making class was held in Human Ecology Building by Won Young. She has studied about hanbok and designing at Hanyang University (HYU) while attending Department of Clothing and Textile. The classes were held two hours everyday excluding the weekends, for four times. How it all started Won Young is Malaysian Chinese and also a Korean gyopo. While she was living in China, she says that there used to be a lot of tribes wearing different types of traditional clothes which is when she first encountered hanbok. “I have seen hanbok a lot on the television but once I came to Korea, I couldn’t see anyone wearing it in real life,” Won said. In order to make up for the discomfort of the hanbok, she started studying about life hanbok and became interested in the designs. Won (right) teaches Helene (left) how to use the sewing machine. She has created a startup team called TS (Time and Space) which consists of two people at the moment. Since she has studied in the field of fashion, Won thought of creating a brand of her own or creating a platform. Although there used to be websites where flower printings were available, it seemed to be a waste to cut out the pieces while designing her own patterns. This is how Won came up with the idea of DIY fabric in which she designs her own patterns and inserts the prints within the patterns. While attending at HYU, Won has participated in diverse programs created for international students but she felt that something was missing. “It seems like I was just looking around rather than doing something at the complete experiencing level. I think there are a lot of foreigners who would think like me,” said Won. This is how she came up with the idea of hanbok making class. Reactions towards the program A total number of fourteen students from diverse countries have participated in this program. Cho Yu-jin (faculty at Department of Clothing and Textile) and Lee Ye-jin (acquaintance of Won) have helped out with this event. Cho has helped out with the over lock while Lee has helped with the translation with the foreign students. Since the students participating in this program did not have any experiences or were not related major to fashion or designing, they had a hard time putting this together and one of them had to do all the sewing all over again from the sketch. Renu (left) and Azira (right) enjoys the program. Most of the students who have participated in the program had a similar idea in a sense that they were not aware of hanbok and how it could be utilized in daily life as well. Hwang An-ki (Media Communication, 2nd yr) said, “I was not well aware of Hanbok in the first place but as I was making it, it came to me as a beautiful traditional clothing.” Since foreign students who do not return to their home countries have not much to experience, they all claim that it has been a great experience for them. “I think it’s quite interesting that some people still wear traditional clothes since we don’t have them in Denmark. I think hanbok is very beautiful costume,” claimed Helene (Korean Studies, Master’s program). Although it has been a short period of time, all the students were able to finish their hanboks. After the session has finished, participants have matched their casual clothes along with hanbok and had photo session afterwards. “Through making the hanbok, foreign students would have been able to have the sense of achievement and feel the traditional culture of Korean costume. Also, by being able to have felt a new type of experience of making clothes, some people would have found a new hobby as well,” added Won. The students who have participated will keep in contact with each other and exchange information on hanbok flea markets or Korean culture experiences. Through this program, foreign students now understand Korean culture a little more. Since it has been a greatly developed program where it has been a talent donation of Won, students from diverse countries were able to experience the beauty of hanbok. Won hopes that she could carry out more programs related to hanbok in the future as well and provide lessons as part of the Korean wave towards foreigners.

[Student]Glitters, a Friendly Guide for Foreign Students

There are a lot of foreign students around the world who visit and attend Hanyang University (HYU). Due to cultural differences and lack of information about the school system, exchange students may experience difficulties in campus life in Korea. The Division of Business Administration is one of the majors that attracts and admits a large number of foreign students. Therefore, many local students who major in business are likely to take classes with foreign exchange students. Glitters, also referred to as global supporters or ambassadors in the Division of Business Administration, are there to help foreign students by giving them information on Korean culture, corporations, and campus life. This week, News H met one of the members of Glitters, Woo Sung-jun (Business Administration, 3rd yr), to hear about Glitters’ activities. Woo, as a Glitters member, explained about the organization and its activities. A budding organization that helps exchange students “Glitters is a student organization comprised of 10 members, for assisting exchange students’ campus life at HYU and providing info about Korea. Although Glitters was created by the administrative team of the Division of Business Administration, its programs are planned, developed, and carried out by the students,” Woo said. Especially because Glitters was established at the beginning of last year, the members put a lot of effort in creating programs by themselves for international students. Woo said that members of Glitters had some concerns related to how it should take a first step into the right direction as founding members. However, due to biweekly meetings, conversations and cooperation between members, they could create helpful activities for international students and greatly satisfy those who participated. “Glitters provides various chances for business students to get in touch with the business environment. It can broaden the horizon and network of the students. I believe that student can gain lots of benefits from joining the events that are organized by Glitters,” Kwan Ho Yin, an exchange student from Hong Kong, commented. Self-made programs for international students Glitters provides a variety of programs for foreign students that include orientation for international students, 'Nori-ters' (Nori meaning play) during school festival time, ‘Conversation Salons’, and visits to Korean companies. Of all the programs, one of the most successful and popular activities developed by Glitters were two visits to Korean corporations. Woo was the team leader of the two visits. “The two companies that we selected were start-up corporation named Maru 180, visited on November 11th, and a major Korean broadcasting company called JTBC, visited on November 28th.” According to Woo, the choice was due to informing exchange students the concept of start-up corporations that do not exist in foreign countries, and also showing the atmosphere of a rising broadcasting network. Visits to two Korean corporations, Maru 180 (top) and JTBC (bottom). After Glitters selected the companies, contacting, making the advertising posters, planning the program schedule, interpretation between the executives and the international students were all taken care of by the members themselves. “The utmost objective of the visits was interaction. Especially after visiting Maru 180, we tried to give prior information to students about the company that we were planning on going to, in order to proceed well with the Q&A and interview sessions that we planned.” According to the executive of Maru 180, there are few occasions where foreign students visit Korean corporations. Glitters provided the very opportunity for international students to experience, feel the atmosphere, and know more about Korean companies. “About the Conversation Salons, we came up with the form, theme, contents and the questionnaires for communication between exchange students and Koreans. This program intrigued many Korean students because they could have the chance to talk to foreigners,” Woo explained. Glitters started the Conversation Salons with the Samsung batteries issue, but then moved onto more casual topics such as life in Korea. Not only did Glitters organize Conversation Salons and visits to Korean corporations, but they also provided two orientation sessions for foreign students to introduce Korean campus life, global students’ assisted schoolwork and planned Nori-ters, which was also the name of their booth during the school festival that allowed foreign students to experience Korean traditional games and food. “We are planning to provide more activities that can meet the needs of international students, to help them adjust well in the Division of Business Administration and know more about Korea and Korean businesses,” Woo said. After every program, Glitters receives feedback from participants and try to reflect their opinions for subsequent programs. “As a Glitters member, working for international students, I feel like I'm fulfilling important values for international friends. I also learned how to understand and care for foreign students. Anyone who is interested in helping exchange students is welcome to join us as a new member of Glitters. English is an important aspect, but it's even more critical to have the knack for instilling in international friends a life value here in Korea, as well as making the most of of working together as a group.” Woo cheerfully added. Glitters members feel pride in organizing programs and providing information about Korea for international students. Jang Soo-hyun luxkari@hanyang.ac.kr Photos by Moon Ha-na
