[Performance]118 Hanyang University Students Pass the 2020 CPA Exam During its 1st Testing Window

According to the University News Network, Hanyang University has been ranked the 6th highest in terms of the number of successful candidates that passed the CPA exam during its first testing window from the university. There is a total of 118 candidates who passed the exam from Hanyang University’s Seoul campus. In 2017, Hanyang University had 83 successful candidates, 93 in 2018, and 105 in 2019. With 118 successful candidates in 2020, the university is showing a continuous incline in its number of successful candidates who pass the CPA exam during its first testing window for four consecutive years. Amongst the domestic universities, only Hanyang University and Korea University has been showing an incline in the number of students who passed the exam over four consecutive years. This year, there were 240 successful candidates from Korea University, who also had the greatest number of candidates that passed, with Sungkyunkwan University and Yonsei University right below them. Ewha Woman’s University marked an end to the Top 10 list with 78 passing candidates, and the Top 10 list released by the University News Network consisted mostly of major universities in Seoul. Out of the 9054 applicants, there were 2201 successful candidates who had passed the exam during its first testing window, with a 4.1:1 competition rate. The number of applicants had increased by 542 compared to the previous year, but its competition rate was somewhat lower as the number of successful applicants expanded by 193 people. 2 years ago, the government stated that it will gradually expand the number of successful CPA exam applicants, saying that there is a need for more accountants. Because of this, this year’s CPA exam’s minimum number of applicants who are expected to pass during its second testing window are 1100 people, which is 100 more compared to last year. Amongst the number of applicants who had passed, there were mostly university-enrolled students with 64.5%, and 25% were university graduates. This proves that out of the 10 successful candidates who had passed the CPA exam during its first testing window, 9 were very close to stepping out of their university gates and into society. Amongst the university majors, there was an overwhelming number of applicants who held business-related majors. This is because those who graduated with business degrees have strengths in certain test sections, such as but not limited to business administration, economic principles, commercial law, and accounting. As many as 77.8% of those who had passed the exam were from business-related majors. Those who passed the exam during its 1st testing window are aiming to become the final successful candidates of the CPA exam after its 2nd testing window that is planned to take place from June 27th to the 28th. Test applications will be accepted from May 14th to the 26th, and the final successful candidates will be announced on August 28th. This year, a total of 3,519 applicants are expected to take the exam during its second testing window, including those who had passed the first testing window and those who suspended. Meanwhile, Hanyang University operates a CPA exam class for those who pass the exam during its first testing window, for those who pass the class entrance exam that takes place every semester, and also for those who obtain excellent grades in the class’ mock exams. Admitted students will be exempted from dormitory fees and will be provided with scholarships and tuition fees. Hanyang University has had 275 students who had successfully passed the exam over the recent five years, with an average of 55 students every year, and 60 students last year. This ranks the university in 7th place for the number of successful applicants it had produced amongst all universities in South Korea. Global News Team Translated by: Lee Jung-joo

[Student]The Practice of Love by ERICA Ambassador 'Love, Hanyang'

'Love, Hanyang,' the promotional ambassador group of Hanyang University ERICA has shown love to Hanyang. Let's take a look at the miracles they've created in the midst of a difficulty cuase by COVID-19 crisis. Q. We have invited 'Love, Hanyang,' who worked hard to collect donations to help overcome COVID-19. How did you start this donation event? A : Due to the sudden spread of COVID-19, we were disappointed that we couldn’t proceed with the activities that we had prepared. We thought about what we could do to help overcome COVID-19 and came up with the idea of starting a donation drive. We selected organizations fairly and carefully, hoping that the donations would be used in a timely manner, and asked various institutions to promote the drive to many students from Hanyang University ERICA. Also, for transparent financial management, the ambassadors did not lose their tension during the week-long fundraising period by organizing and disclosing the deposit details every day. We were proud that we could carry out the 'Love in Deed and Truth', which is part of the school’s philosophy, and it was an honor for Love, Hanyang to lead the event. In the beginning, it was a bit stressful to start fundraising as a school representative, but thanks to all the Hanyang family members that participated, it was better than expected. Q. What does the university ambassador Love, Hanyang do exactly? A : Love, Hanyang is the official ambassador of Hanyang University ERICA’s Admission Team, and works to promote our school both on- and off-campus. In this year, nine students are participating as 15th member of Love, Hanyang. Love, Hanyang is communicating with many middle and high school students through campus tours, HY-LIGHT (a high school student college tour program), frequent admission fairs at Coex, and local high school visitations to promote Hanyang University ERICA. Moreover, we carry out protocols during official school and student events to communication with our students. In addition, Love, Hanyang is a model for school promotional magazines, newsletters, and promotional videos as a representative body of the university. Q. Please tell us about the pride of Hanyang University ERICA that Love, Hanyang loves.

[Academics][Excellent R&D] Into the Unknown through Convergence

For a long time, scientists have wanted to figure out how the elements which constitute the universe were formed. Still, there is not much known about this mechanism. Heavy-ion particle accelerators now provide a clue to the generative processes as they reproduce what the universe has been going through since its creation. Professor Kim Yong-kyun (Department of Nuclear Engineering) contributed to the establishment of a new heavy-ion particle accelerator RAON by building the most powerful and accurate μSR (Muon spin rotation). Professor Kim Yong-Kyun (Department of Nuclear Engineering) is engaging in the domestic heavy-ion particle accelerator project called RAON. RAON is a heavy-ion particle accelerator propelled by the Institute of Basic Science, which is a machine that can be used to find undiscovered elements or reenact the formation process of existing elements. It will be the first heavy-ion particle accelerator that uses both Isotope Separation On-Line and In-flight Fragmentation methods. Because the machine is so complex, researchers are conducting the project in collaboration with many other accelerator research groups including Radiation Instrument and Sensor Engineering Lab (RAISE), a Hanyang University Research Laboratory led by Kim. Kim’s team has been specifically working on μSR. μ (Muon) is an unstable elementary particle similar to the electron which is created by collision between high-energy protons and the atmosphere. Owing to its greater mass, μ accelerates slower than electrons in electromagnetic fields. μ lets scientists probe the properties of novel materials as it penetrates far deeper into the matter than X-rays. μ exist all around the world, but is useless because of its short meantime of 2.2 μs (microseconds). “That is why we use heavy-ion particle accelerators to create μ,” explained Kim. μ helps probe the properties of novel materials as μSR has become a tool of measurement. (Photo Courtesy of Kim) μSR measures the decay and spin information with μ produced by the accelerators, offering new insights into the property of a matter. μSR is a technique based on the implantation of spin-polarized μ in the matter and on the detection of the influence of the atomic, molecular or crystalline surroundings on their spin motion. Kim’s team is now building the most powerful and precise μSR in the world. “Our μSR is expected to further the development of new semiconductors and superconductors as well as shed light on material science,” said Kim. Ten years ago, when the government first launched the project of building the domestic heavy-ion particle accelerator, no one in the field believed that there would be a notable achievement. However, within a decade, RAON is becoming the cutting-edge convergence technology of basic science. Kim attributes its success to Korea’s competitiveness in interdisciplinary education between basic science and practical studies. “STEM education in Korea is top-notch,” said Kim. “The Department of Nuclear Engineering's curriculum contributed to a certain extent.” Kim ascribed its success to the education system that highlights interdisciplinary studies. Kim advised students to find new possibilities and integrate different interests, saying “You should challenge yourself to achieve what you aim for.” With these initiatives in mind, Kim is pioneering his way into science and technology that is yet unknown.
