The Robot-Engineering Innovative Design Global Talent Cultivation Program is a project that sponsors prospective graduate students to conduct joint research with renowned institutions abroad and is organized by Korea’s Ministry of Commerce Industry and Energy. From April 2019 to December 2020, Hanyang University will conduct this project in the two fields of robotics and engineering. Professor Simon Song (Division of Mechanical Engineering) is the project's director.

Graduate students will be assigned to 26 laboratories around the world.

Through the project, 26 Hanyang University graduate students (including 9 post-doctoral researchers, 10 PhD candidates, and 6 master’s students) will be assigned to 26 famous laboratories in 14 different institutions or universities including MIT, Stanford, and Harvard University. Based on the previous research that students have conducted at Hanyang, they are to cooperate with a team with similar assignments to share and develop their knowledge in the field. The research topics include various subjects in engineering and robotics, such as IoT sensor technologies, AI, big data engineering, soft robotics, and rehabilitation robotics.
 
Professor Simon Song (Division of Mechanical Engineering) added that, "I want to thank the head of the Industry-University Research Cooperation Foundation, Lee Soo-jae, who sent enormous support for the project."

Previously, sending students abroad was met with many obstacles such as admission evaluation and cost-coverage. The program offers our graduate students a valuable opportunity to conduct joint research, which Song believes students can benefit greatly from. “After studying abroad, not only does their research improve, but the students’ attitude and confidence show a great difference, too. By networking with fellow researchers and professors, they seem to realize that the competition is not only within Hanyang or Korea, but rather, they need to strive to contribute to research world-wide.” Song added that he hopes to see a similar change through the program towards the end of next year.
