[Policy][COVID-19] The End Date of the 2020 First Semester “Remains,” as Some Schedules Have Inevitably Changed

As the first day of the semester was delayed two weeks due to COVID-19, the Office of Academic Affairs announced the changed academic schedules. The last day of the semester is June 20, and considering the tight academic schedule of the 15-week class, the additional days of June 22 (Tue) and 23 (Wed) were designated as possible supplementary classes. Due to the delayed start of the semester, it is inevitable to change various university schedules within the first semester of 2020. For now, the application period for early graduation during the semester, the final correction period for the course application, and the mid-course lecture evaluation period, the graduation thesis submission period, and the application period for the multi-disciplinary course will be delayed by one or two weeks. The application period for the summer seasonal semester is the same as before. The end of the semester is unchanged, but the end-of-semester lecture evaluation period has been extended by four days, and the end of the first semester’s grade calculation and the checking period will be extended by one day. In addition, the summer semester was postponed for two days on a weekday basis on both the start and the end dates. No changes have been made for the second semester, and the standard date for the admission of those who are on leave of absence for military service will be announced separately. Through Hanyang Wiki’s “Academic Schedules 2020” page, you can compare the schedule before and after the change. * Hanyang Wiki:학사일정2020 (only in Korean) Global News Team Translation by: Lee Seong-chae

[Academics][Excellent R&D] Stepping Stone to Overcome Stratospheric Conditions

Aircraft usually fly at the top of the troposphere or the lower end of the stratosphere. Although there is less turbulence and weather constraints in the stratosphere, launching an aircraft into the stratosphere is difficult because there exists no efficient battery that can stand the harsh conditions of the atmosphere as of now. Here to change this dilemma is Professor Kim Han-su (Department of Energy Engineering) who is working on developing a secondary battery that can withstand the harsh conditions of the stratosphere. Professor Kim Han-su (Department of Energy Engineering) is developing a secondary battery that can withstand the harsh conditions of the stratosphere. In order to survive in the stratosphere, the battery must have high-density (meaning it can store more energy in the given mass) as well as be resistant to low temperatures. Kim’s solution was to use the sulfide electrolyte based all-solid-state secondary battery. The fire-retardant characteristics of the battery ensured the battery’s stability. However, there remained a problem that all-solid-state batteries have relatively lower energy density compared to other secondary batteries on the market. Thus, Kim’s team is currently in the progress of attempting to use high-density lithium in the battery development process to create a battery that has high energy density and is temperature resistant. Kim’s research is especially valuable since the batteries can be used in drones, which are expected to substitute satellites in the future. According to the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI), it takes about 30 million won per kilogram to launch a satellite. Scientists expect the drones in the stratosphere to perform the same but in a cost-efficient way. “Most of what we anticipate from satellites can be embodied by drones,” said Kim. “Even though we cannot replace the satellites’ roles in observing outer space, drones can be an alternative in a practical sense.” Kim's research is expected to support future military and commercial drones. Kim expressed his goals in creating a battery that can be utilized for both military and commercial purposes. The common facts of today are the products of yesterday’s research. The effort of Kim’s team will be a stepping stone to an unprecedented technology. Oh Kyu-jin

[Academics][Researcher of the Month] A Suggestion for the Harmonized Standard of Wireless Devices

In order to sell commercial wireless devices in Europe, the products must meet the guidelines of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED), established by the European Commission (EC). However, most of the guidelines are abstract and expansive, and, therefore, regulation was realistically difficult. To complement this, EC consulted European standards institutes to establish a harmonized standard that corresponds to the RED guideline. The new harmonized standard will be chosen by EC in April, and commercialized wireless products will be regulated in the European market accordingly. Thus, manufacturers will need to prove that their products meet the particular harmonized standard to sell them to the European market in the future. Professor Choi Seung-won (Department of Electronic Engineering), with his recent thesis, ‘Market Access for Radio Equipment Directive in Europe Enabled by the Radio Equipment Directive (RED): Status, Next Steps and Implications,’ suggested a thoroughly researched standard that is competent as a new harmonized standard. Professor Choi Seung-won (Department of Electronic Engineering) has proposed a harmonized standard for wireless devices. The Hanyang Mobile Communication research center has been engaged in the standardization action at the European Telecommunications Standards Institute's (ETSI) Reconfigurable Radio Systems (RRS) technical committee since 2009. Currently, the center is trying to pass its developed standard as the new harmonized standard of EC. Choi's thesis is a part of this ETSI standardization action, aiming to inform both domestic and foreign institutes about the center’s progressing standardization action and its importance. Choi stated that the center has developed a unique wireless device architecture and interface that makes it possible for software restructuring, and these patented architecture and interfaces were applied in the standard suggested by the center. “If our standard gets selected as the harmonized standard, wireless device manufacturers will have to follow our standard, meaning they will have to manufacture the products using our patented technologies,” said Choi. He added that this means manufacturers will have to pay royalty to the center and that is what makes the research of higher value. "Constant effort will be made in the future for our standard to be chosen as the harmonized standard, as well as to commercialize the RRS techniques," said Choi. Lim Ji-woo

[Special]As You Are the Flower of Today

Literature appeals to modern people who suffer from constant fatigue and stress, as it provides a healing experience with empathy. Here is Kim Ye-won (Department of English Education, '18) who recently published her book of essays, You Are the Flower of Today, which builds upon the famous poet Na T’ae-ju’s poetry. Kim Ye-won (Department of English Education, '18) recently published her first book of essays, You Are the Flower of Today. You Are the Flower of Today is a book that consists of Kim’s essays along with Na’s literary work and illustration. Na is a poet who is well-known for his poem Flower. The essayist delineated Na’s poems through her lens, expressing her own emotions and experiences. “Literature is always there whenever you need it,” stated Kim. The essayist wrote down her experience of consolation after appreciating Na’s poems. “I wanted to deliver a positive impact to my readers,” said Kim. “Just like what I received from Na’s poems.” The collaboration of the two co-authors gives a sense of kinship beyond the age gap of 50 years. You Are the Flower of Today is a collection of poems and essays which provide a sense of kinship between the two co-authors. (Photo courtesy of Sigongsa) Kim’s works are mostly based on her experiences as a Hanyang student. “Hanyang is where I cultivated my set of values,” recalled Kim. In particular, what the English Education graduate learned in her English literature courses has influenced her response to literature. “I went beyond understanding meaning, associating literature to my life,” said the author. People have no choice but to live in the wheel of everyday life. Kim flashed back to her experience when preparing for the teacher certification examination. What Kim did was to make a slight change. “A shift of viewpoint provided new value to the obvious,” said Kim. “It was an opportunity to realize the importance of things that we take for granted.” “Although a literary work is written by a certain author,” said the essayist, “what the piece reflects is everyone’s story.” Kim stated that every life deserves respect and acceptance. The co-writer added that everyone is doing a big job as they influence one another. Kim seeks to encourage everyone who is living their today through You Are the Flower of Today. Kim stated that You Are the Flower of Today reflects everyone's story. She added that every life deserves respect and acceptance. The essayist—who has just finished her maiden work—admitted that it is not an easy job to publish a book of her own. However, Kim stated that she received more energy by communicating with the readers through SNS. The writer showed her will to publish a new book in the future. Kim stated that she earned energy from her readers' feedback. It will be a driving force for her next piece of writing. Youth is not a time of life, but a state of mind. Kim's essays are providing value in everyday life overcoming the agony of youth. Oh Kyu-jin Photos by Oh Kyu-jin

[Academics]Professor Jeong Jae-gyeong Develops a Stretchable Display

On the 6th, Hanyang University announced that Professor Jeong Jae-gyeong (Department of Electric Engineering) developed a ‘stretchable transistor’ technology that can be stretched out and easily change the size. Flexible OLED that is used for foldable cell phones, which became famous as ‘foldable smartphones,’ such as the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, is expected to evolve ultimately into a stretchable display after developing as foldable and rollable displays. Following such flows, the technology that Professor Jeong’s team developed is foreseen to be largely meaningful in the display field in the future. Commonly, the flexible display uses polyimide as a breadboard so that it can be curved or rolled. However, polyimide has a drawback that it cannot be stretched since it is a hard material. To overcome the limitation, Professor Jeong’s team made a high-performance oxide transistor over polyimide film and used polyethylene that can be stretched like a rubber band as a breadboard, so that it can be stretched threefold than before and can keep its high electric performances. Also, they planned a structure with a higher duration by replacing the previous silica gate insulator with a hybrid polymer of zirconium, organic matter, and a crosslinker. Professor Jeong said, “The hybrid material and semiconductor processing concept can later be applied to rubber breadboard that can be stretched as one wants in the future. Through this, they might be used not only for the display industry but also for various industries such as tablets, clothing, and human skin.” This research is done with the support of Samsung Electronics Research Funding & Incubation Center for Future Technology’s Next Generation Material / Element Project and the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy’s Element Part Industry Future Growth Basis Project. The research result is published in a world-renowned paper, 「Advanced Functional Materials (IF = 15.6)」 in January. Kim Jeong-o (Department of Information Display Engineering), taking the Ph. D. course joined as the lead author and Professor Hong Yong-taek of Seoul National University joined as a co-author. ■ Title of the Publication: Network structure modification enabled hybrid polymer dielectric film with zirconia for the stretchable transistor application ■ Authors Professor Jeong Jae-gyeong (Corresponding Author, Hanyang University) Kim Jeong-o (First Author, Hanyang University) Hong Yong-taek (Co-author, Seoul National University) ■ Research Principles It developed an oxide transistor array that can have elasticity and can keep high performance by introducing the stress-relief structure that has a different Young’s Modulus. In detail, it synthesized and developed a new hybrid polymer insulator that can keep a good dielectric property by dispersing zirconia ceramics with high permittivity to a high polymer called PVP-co-PMMA in molecular level through the introduction of a crosslink with a silanol group. Through this, it is applied to a high mobility IGTO oxide semiconductor element. With this, it proved a high-performance TFT array concept that is 300% stretchable in a -150℃ process.

[Student]“Paving My Way and Future with Experiences” - An Interview of Students with Excellent Internship Results

The job market is becoming fiercer every day. Now it is time to compete with special experiences that nobody has. Here are individuals who have made their own stories from the field experiences of internship programs. These individuals are having their achievements acknowledged during their internship periods: Lee Yeong-ho (Division of Electrical Engineering Class of `13) and Kim Hyeon-seo (Department of Industrial Management Engineering Class of `14) got the Best Internship Award from Hyosung Power & Industrial Systems R&D Center and Ryu Tae-yeong (Department of Marine Science and Convergence Engineering Class of `15) received an award from Korea Rural Community Corporation. We met the three who got to have a big certainty through field experiences and awards. Q1. Your achievements were acknowledged by the corporations you worked in. How do you feel? Lee Yeong-ho (Electrical Engineering `13): I was not thinking of getting the award and did not expect it as well. I appreciate the award although there were people who were more hardworking than I am. Kim Hyeon-seo (Industrial Management Engineering `14): I did not expect the award. I guess the corporation had a good image of me as I tried my best until the end despite I found it hard to adapt in the beginning. Ryu Tae-yeong (Marine Science and Convergence Engineering `15): It is all thanks to Professor Shiin Seong-won who suggested the internship in the first place. I am happy about this but I also wonder if I am qualified for this award. Q2. What made you do an internship and with what criteria did you choose corporations? Lee Yeong-ho: After being a senior and started writing letters of self-introduction for job-seeking, I realized that I lack special experiences or stories, from the perspective of corporations. As I decided to have some field experiences before joining a company, I applied for the job sectors I was interested in. Electrical Engineering that I was interested in was the nearest to Hyosung Power & Industrial Systems R&D Center. Kim Hyeon-seo: Among my coursemates, there was a friend who did an internship at Hyosung. After listening to the story, my passion for the internship got bigger. In the phases of application, my friend actually cheered me a lot and gave me a lot of tips for application and interview. Ryu Tae-yeong: My professor recommended me for an internship. Although there were many other corporations other than the Korea Rural Community Corporation, I thought the work there would fit me best. The field is close to my subjects of interest and as the job is active, mainly science experiments, it fits well with my personality that cannot stay motionless. Ryu Tae-yeong received an award from the Korea Rural Community Corporation. Q3. Tell us about the department you worked in and your main tasks. Lee Yeong-ho: I was in the DC Grid team of Hyosung. It researches values to commercialize in the future industrial market and proves that the corporation has such technologies. We cooperated not only with research labs in many universities but also with other corporations. During undergraduate years, I just checked whether something works with a software tool, but I was able to experience the production and inventory. It is a process of making hardware. As I was interested in this sector, it became a meaningful experience. Kim Hyeon-seo: I was in the Technology Management team of Hyosung. It manages and plans research tasks, which are the most valued in the research lab. We not only value, manage, check, and pre-investigate the progress of tasks, but also deliver research tasks through contacting other companies and cooperating with universities. It is the center of the research lab. Through Hyosung’s original system, research tasks are under control. Ryu Tae-yeong: Korea Rural Community Corporation has the largest experiment lab in the East. A representative task is the Saemangeum Embankment project. We had a mock experiment under the request for repair. When my manager told me how to conduct the experiment, I did the experiment and delivered the result to researchers. They analyzed the results and numbers and students conducted experiments with technicians. Q4. What did you learn through the internship? Lee Yeong-ho: I tried to approach to elder seniors. Plus, I was able to experience the process - how works are done in a company. I also learned how to behave in different situations as it is my first time doing the job. My undergraduate knowledge was a background knowledge but active works, in the beginning, were hard. After I adapted to the atmosphere, it fits my interests and I could feel some joy while testing the products. It was attractive that the lab not only does tests and experiments but also has other business works such as meeting with other companies, meaning that there were various works. Kim Hyeon-seo: I learned a lot about interpersonal relationships. I approached my team members by asking for help and asking if there is anything to help because I have to work for a long time in the team. By using programs such as Excel and Powerpoint, my productivity and working capacity were increased. At first, I was astonished because of simple tasks but I tried my best to use my maximum capacity in parts that I can do. I even suggested a project to them. I guess I received the award since it worked out well. Ryu Tae-yeong: If you have set your goals firmly, working in the relevant field and company will be a great help for you when preparing for the job and after you get the job. I could learn professional knowledge from field experts, not from education in schools. This made a difference between me and competitors. Probably, an internship is an experience of social lives. Living a social life is not an easy thing but there surely will be someone to help you when you do your best by yourself. Those people are reliable people when you have hardships. Q5. Share us some words and tips for students preparing for an internship. Lee Yeong-ho: Many students are hesitant about an internship. They might take short-term internships into consideration when a long-term internship is burdensome. In the case of people who do not realize the situation of the current job market, experiences from an internship will raise your own value and make yourself to see your future path clearly. In selecting candidates by examining personal career papers, I think emphasizing my undergraduate lab internship and my organization-friendly personality meant a lot. Kim Hyeon-seo: Hanyang’s internship program is well-established and there is even a building for it. It is good to visit the center. You can get counseling and data about companies. I recommend you to get advice from friends who have done an internship. However, first of all, I strongly recommend you to apply for an internship when you feel the necessity for an internship by yourself so that you want to work in the actual field. Further, I tried to show my passion for the field of interest by pointing out my experiences of helping my professor during the undergraduate years in the resume and in the interview, I emphasized my ability to adapt to any environment. Ryu Tae-yeong: My professor who recommended me the internship have said what is more important than my GPA is ‘an attitude to work hard, without using tricks’. It is important to look up information about internships by yourself. When preparing for the internship, I stressed that I have a lot of interests since my major is relevant to the company’s main field. It became good merit to study in this department because works in the Korea Rural Community Corporation can be hard when they do not go along with your interest. In interviews, if you show a will to work hard with confidence, you can pass the process, so please try first of all without hesitating. Q6. What are your future plans and dreams? Lee Yeong-ho: I am preparing to get into a company with a job that I desire. I want to find work where I can show my true qualities. I hope that trying my best on the given work would help the society also. Kim Hyeon-seo: I am feeling pride in the fact that now there are many stories that I can tell after going through the field experience. I would like to work at a company where I can use my full qualities. Ryu Tae-yeong: I thought that it would be difficult before, but through this experience, I now have confidence that I will be able to get a job that fits my major 100%. This became an opportunity for me to decide to study harder. Hanyang University's field experience program, 'HY-WEB', provides students with the field experience related to one's major and an opportunity to search on one's career. Students who participate in the program go through short·long term training processes at a government organization, company, laboratory or nonprofit organization, which are organizations that fit the field experience requirements provided by the Ministry of Education, and are registered at the Center for Academic Placement Support. It is expected to give students the chance to improve their abilities regarding their majors through a clear selection of careers and various experiences, also enhancing their executive abilities in the end. The process is usually done through first submitting the documents through the website, holding interviews at each company, and making a final selection at the end. Global News Team

Last year, Hanyang University made an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) joint business agreement with Ground X and opened formal master's degree lectures for the development of blockchain education and joint research. Korea's biggest company in the messenger industry, Kakao Corporation, supported the work, having the goal of creating education and joint researches that nurture future blockchain developers. The 'Smart Contract and Decentralized Application' lecture was held for a total of 15 weeks, starting from September of 2019, providing an education covering various contents, such as basic concepts and structure of blockchain, motion fundamentals of Ground X's self-developed platform Klaytn, consensus mechanism, smart contracts and more. Areas such as blockchain application training based on real-life examples, or methods to improve the UI (User Interface)·UX (User Experience) of blockchain services were also covered in the lecture. The lecture was held by the Evangelist Engineer of Ground X, Kim Woo-joong. The lecture is open to any student or developers interested in a blockchain platform and blockchain application development, which can be found at the IT technology education platform 'InfLearn' or 'Ground X Youtube Channel'. Kim Woo-joong Ground X Evangelist mentioned that "it was very memorable to give the lecture that covers not only the basic concepts of blockchain but also the experiences and business knowledge based on various scenarios that happen in the real-life business environment." He also noted that "since the whole Hanyang University lecture is opened online for free, I hope that it helps many people that are interested in Klaytn and development and operation of blockchain application."
