40 years ago in 1979, a university building was built on land made from mudflats near the west coast of Korea. No one could have imagined that, on such a barren and remote location, the university’s dream would become a reality, but now -- everyone has taken notice of Hanyang University’s ERICA Campus as a role model for the Korean industry-academic cooperation. We would like to introduce the ERICA Campus, and how it is expected to change in the future. <Hanyang University ERICA Campus> ** Click to view larger image Discovering the keys to winning a competition through cooperation The method that has been gaining major attention for companies as a means of surviving fierce competition has, ironically, been labeled as cooperation. ‘Hyper-Co-operation’ emerged from the term cooperative competition (Coopetition = Cooperation + Competition), which means to go beyond mere cooperation by taking the hand of anyone for survival. It is only plausible that the traditional method of companies independently solving problems aligned with the fast pace of technological transformation carries limitations, and the decision made by companies at this point is “cooperate with universities.” There are many instances in which companies from developed nations like the United States and Germany achieved successful industrial innovation in cooperation with companies. In the 1980s, Harvard Medical School (Hoechst A.G.), the University of Washington (Monsanto), and MIT (Exon) received attention by creating innovation through industry-academic cooperation. Recently GE, Siemens, Rolls-Royce, IBM, Amazon, Google, and Uber are innovating by utilizing universities as key players, and global companies are strengthening the development of cooperative relationships by transferring laboratories inside the school or creating memberships with universities. <Foreign University Cases> - Philips : Transferred the Research Center to the nearest location in MIT for joint research of MIT, Health Tech, and Connected Lighting fields (2015) - IBM : Concluded 264 billion won partnerships for 10 years with MIT for AI research (2017) - Qualcomm : Founded by former UCSD Professor Irwin Jacobs - Rolls-Royce : Carried out long-term research development through alliance and cooperation with multiple universities, without autonomously possessing a basis for research development - Germany RWTH Aachen Engineering College: 16 research clusters have been established on the campus, and each cluster has space for independent research facilities and spaces for alliances with companies. The company has an on-site representative to conduct joint research with the university. ※ Source: Industrial-Academic Cooperation System and Case Study of Major Overseas Universities (Korea Industrial Technology Promotion Agency, 2018) How is industry-academic cooperation in Korea? What is the situation like in Korea where foreign countries are strengthening partnerships with universities amid such rapid changes? Recently, there has been an emphasis on industry-academic cooperation as a means to create new innovations, but the actual level of cooperation in Korea is still insufficient. Only 2.8 percent voluntarily pushed for industrial-academic cooperation without government support, and there are statistics that the technology fee income against research development costs is at 1.2 percent, compared with 3.4 percent in the U.S. Despite such a poor domestic environment, there is a university that leads the flow of industrial-academic cooperation in Korea. That is Hanyang University’s ERICA Campus. The ERICA Campus of Hanyang University, located in the Ansan area of the Seoul metropolitan region of Korea, currently hosts more than 200 industry and research institutes on campus, and more than 2,000 companies have joined the family business to form an organic network. The 'corporate membership program' introduced by leading universities abroad was optimized for the ERICA Campus and introduced for the first time in Korea. This program is called EP (ERICA Partners). In addition, 260 companies participate in field trials to foster practical individuals with on-the-job training, so that this role is not neglected as an educational institution. In particular, this growth has accelerated this year on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Campus, achieving the success of being selected for all three key industrial-academic cooperation projects by the government. As one of the new models for the government to create innovative growth engines, the ERICA Campus has now set the stage for the development of a world-class industrial-academic cooperation cluster, which will proceed beyond the domestic level, in line with the intensive investment of industrial-academic cooperation projects. 「 Designation of Gyeonggi Ansan Province as R&D Special Zone」: Projects that promote technological commercialization as a core institution (Main agency: Hanyang University ERICA) and apply tax benefits to research institute companies or high-tech companies that move into special zones (main agency: Ministry of Science, Technology, Information and Communication)/ Production effect of up to 128.7 billion won (100 million USD) over the next five years, generating 51.6 billion won in value added effect, and creating 1,139 jobs. 「Industrial-academic cooperation complex creation business in universities」: A project aimed at revitalizing the entry and start-up of companies and research institutes by remodeling the idle space of universities (main institution: the Ministry of Education) / Support a total of 13.8 billion won (12 million USD) over five years, government 8 billion won (7 million USD) and local governments 5.8 billion won (5 million USD) 「Campus Innovative Park business」: A project to develop the university's 186,848-square-meter idle land into a city-high-tech industrial park favored by the youth (main institutions: the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, the Ministry of Small and Medium-sized Venture Business) / 1,000 companies, aimed at creating 10,000 employment ▲An anticipated bird's eye view of the urban high-tech industrial complex (Campus Innovative Park) created within ERICA ** Click to view larger image The ERICA Campus will evolve as the center of a future oriented city beyond imagination. The reason behind the government's selection of major projects is that it has been recognized for its outstanding achievements in industry-academic cooperation, but it can also be interpreted for highlighting the potential for future development. The ERICA Campus is outlining the big picture on the process of achieving the vision of national development beyond just the growth of the university. <Government-led Changes and Regional New Infrastructure> (Changes around campus) - Participated in achieving the vision of the world's top four manufacturing powers on the national level - Selected the smart line production process for Banwol-Shiwha national industrial complex (Ministry of Industry and Energy plans to inject a total of 1.605 trillion won or 1 billion USD by 2022) - The newly opened Hanyang University Station, New-Ansan Line, will greatly improve accessibility to Seoul beginning in 2024 (approximately 25 minutes to Seoul) - Plan to initiate a smart city development plan across the university in an 89 block radius (in total, 320,000 m2) - The Smart Manufacturing Innovation Center will be relocated to a 90 block circumference (approximately 80,000 m2) with a walking distance of 5 minutes from the campus. - Planning to develop borrow pit 3 (an area where material has been dug for use at another location) for the smart ICT convergence cluster within the campus (total plottage of 180,000 m2) - A total of 920,000 square meters of land, both inside and outside the campus, will be used for future industrial reconstruction. ▲ An expected aerial-view of Hwaseong International Theme Park: the complex will be a total of 4.18 million square meters.

The original dream envisioned for Hanyang University’s ERICA Campus is even clearer now. The Ansan Science Valley, centered on Hanyang University's ERICA Campus, will be developed into a youth-friendly city where one can enjoy all of the high-tech industry, residential amenities, the culture, and leisure activities, making this, a perfect model for a future-oriented city. In addition, a large new town with a total size of 20,000 households is being created within only a 10 minute walking distance from campus, and the development of ‘Smart City’ is planned as a demonstration of the high-tech residential complex on the site opposite the university. The international theme park complex development project is being carried out on 4.18 million square meters of land within a 2km radius of the campus, and the private sector is expected to invest 4.5 trillion won (4 billion USD) in total budget into the cultural leisure industry. The site will be built with world-class theme parks, as well as high-end hotels and resorts, golf courses, complex shopping malls and premium outlets. From the excellent residential conditions provided through the creation of such industrial-residential-culture complex, the inflow of young people is expected and will be developed into one of the premier urban centers for youths representing the Republic of Korea. One cannot help but notice the ERICA campus of Hanyang University, a university oriented toward the future that will grow with the region and drive future industries. What about Hanyang University ERICA? Hanyang University ERICA (Education-Research-Industry-Cluster at Ansan) was founded as a Banwol branch school in 1979 with the purpose of industrial-academic cooperation. Hanyang University ERICA is located in Ansan, a satellite city of Seoul, the capital of Korea. In addition to 19,000 small and medium-sized enterprises located in Banwol-Sihwa National Industrial Complex, the largest industrial complex in the Seoul metropolitan area within a 2km radius. Global companies such as Hyundai Motor Co., LG Electronics Inc., Samsung Display Co. and Samsung Electronics Co. are located within 20-30 kilometers. One-fourth of the campus' 430,000 pyeong (1,309,515 m2) site are cluster zones, providing an infrastructure that can be fully utilized by laboratories and industries. In particular, the campus name was changed to ERICA: Education-Research-Industry-Cluster at Ansan to characterize industry-academic cooperation and promote the university's vision toward a world-class industry-academic cluster more clearly. The outstanding academic infrastructure and the various academic-industrial cooperation programs created on campus provide a leading model of future universities that not only play a pivotal role in the development of local industries but also cultivates practical individuals who can contribute to society. ERICA has abundant research infrastructure, including 9 colleges, 54 departments, 400 full-time faculty members, 1,000 graduate students, and 9,000 college students who are attending the school. ▲ ERICA Campus Infrastructure map ** Click to view larger image.

'Bang Won Pyeong Jik,' which means Bang (方) for Square, Won (圓) for Circle, Pyeong (平) for Horizontal, and Jik (直) for Vertical, is a term describing a fundamental architectural principle -- that a building should be a proper harmony of a square, circle, horizontal, and vertical. The term is also the title of the collaborative exhibition by the Hanyang University Museum and Hanyang's Far East Architectural History Lab. The exhibition's full title, ‘Bang Won Pyeong Jik: Tailoring the houses’ is currently being held at the Hanyang University Museum from October 10th to the 31st. As its title indicates, the main theme of the exhibition is the tool which forms the basis of all architecting and tailoring, the ruler. The exhibition holds significance as it commemorates the 80th anniversary of Hanyang University as well as the Department of Architecture, the major that has been with the school from its establishment. The exhibition, ‘Bang Won Pyeong Jik: Tailoring the houses’ is open from October 10th to October 31st, 2019. The exhibition presents a wide collection of rulers used by architectural artisans from ancient times to present, from Eastern to Western. Rulers of great cultural value can be seen at the exhibiton, including an old dangcheok (a ruler used in the Tang dynasity), rulers used in ancient Korea from the Goryeo and Joseon dynasties, as well as a nine-meter ruler of Shin Eung-su, the master carpenter of Korea, whose ruler was used for the repair of Seoul’s Gwanghwamun. The exhibition also tells many interesting facts about rulers, such as interpreting dreams about a ruler, how the standards of measuring have changed over time, how kings of the past tried to ‘rule’ through rulers, and even a picture of how tall Kwanwoo, a nine-cheok human from the Records of the Three Kindgoms, actually was. By showing the meaning and the value which rulers have held throughout history, the exhibition invites its visitors to realize the significance of a mundane tool -- the ruler. The exhibition displays a wide collection of rulers used by architectural artisans from ancient times to present, from Eastern to Western, based on the theme of Bang Won Pyeong Jik. Professor Han dong-soo (Department of Architecture), the head of the Far East Architectural History Lab, explained that the idea for the exhibition came from a simple proposition he once made to one of his students. “There was a student who did not have a hobby, so one day I recommended him to try and collect rulers. After two years, he had gathered about 200 rulers. It felt like a waste to not put them on display,” said Han. “The ruler is the first tool to be used for any work, whether it be for tailoring clothes or building a house. Thus, it holds something special for architects." Professor Han dong-soo (Department of Architecture) and his students in Hanyang’s Far East Architectural History Lab proposed the idea for the exhibition. The exhibition, which is free of charge, will be held until October 31st, 2019. For its visitors, Han has encouraged us to think about the history and the wisdom behind the mundane tool called the ruler. “Throughout history, rulers have played an important role, far more than just measuring. They encapsulate the wisdom of the past architects, even as far as embodying the absolute power of a kingdom. It will be of much fun to consider these aspects with your visit," said Han.

The era of technological revolution is changing at a frightening pace! Where is university research heading in the days of the 4th Industrial Revolution? What is the secret to Hanyang’s outstanding research that has been leading the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution? The answer can be found in Hanyang’s 80-year history. For the past 80 years, beginning in 1939 when Hanyang University launched its education program based on the founder’s idea of “making the nation rich and strong through technology education,” that idea has continued through the university’s educational philosophy of offering “practical academics.” Hanyang University has always supported research and education that help society and the nation, and this has gained even more significance in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution. The following eight representative researchers and their astonishing research results show how Hanyang University is leading the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Professor Kim Ki-hyun, Civil and Environmental Engineering Developed technology that eliminates air pollution-causing matter Professor Kim Ki-hyun has developed a new material related to improving the environmental analysis system that controls and manages Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and bad smells. Benzene and formaldehyde are kinds of VOCs, which are class one carcinogens that can be produced in daily life when people cook, drive, or smoke. Current air purification technology has limitations in detecting and eliminating such carcinogens, since they only specialize in dust elimination. Combining metal and carbon organic matter, Professor Kim developed Metal Organic Frameworks (MOF) and succeeded in adsorbing and eliminating such pollution particles. In addition, he simultaneously developed technology that effectively concentrates samples, such as toxic substances, and suggested a new air quality diagnosis method that analyses 22 kinds of odor causing materials which have been designated by the Ministry of Environment. Professor Kim Sang-wook, Computer Science Developed big data graph analyzing technology which is 40 times faster than the current method Professor Kim developed a single-machine-based graph engine called RealGraph, which has big data analysis capabilities 40 times faster than that of current technology. While planning RealGraph, he used the phenomenon that “real world graph data shows power-law degree distribution, not normal distribution.” (An example of the power-law degree is how on Instagram most users communicate with a small number of other users, while very few users communicate with a large number of users.) Existing graph engines did not consider power-law degree distribution which caused uneven workload distribution and inefficient memory access, but Professor Kim applied new strategies to solve those problems. As a result, RealGraph performed up to 44 times faster than existing engines when processing large-scale graph big data. His engine is expected to be utilized in various fields such as social media analysis and protein structure analysis, due to its fast analyzing capacity. Professor Kim Seon-jeong, Electrical and Biomedical Engineering Artificial Muscle, 40 times stronger than human muscle Professor Kim Seon-Jeong, together with an international research team including researchers from the University of Texas, developed a new “sheath-run” artificial muscle that is 40 times stronger than human muscle. This newly developed sheath-run artificial muscle has 9 times higher performance than the original artificial muscle, and it was able to solve the economic problem which has been seen as a limitation of existing artificial muscles. Since it no longer uses carbon nanotubes which have a high manufacturing price, and instead uses commercial threads such as nylon and silk, the newly developed technology has a lower material price and thus a much higher commercial value. Professor Sun Yang-kook, Energy Engineering Developed a cost-effective, high capacity electronic battery The main field of research for Professor Sun Yang-kook is cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries and next-generation battery materials. Cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries are a crucial key to solving some critical issues related to electric cars - short driving distance and high cost. In the manufacturing of electric cars, 60% of the total cost is for materials, 44% of which is spent on cathode materials. Therefore, the price of electric cars could be made more affordable if one could lower the price of cathode materials. Using more nickel would help to lower the price and increase the battery capacity, but then stability and battery life would underperform due to increased heat. That is, battery capacity and battery stability and life are in inverse proportions. Professor Sun developed a Full Concentration Gradient Structure cathode material (with increased nickel content in the center and increased manganese content at the surface) to solve the issue. Cheap and stable cathode materials with large capacities can now be manufactured, and these are being used in Kia Motors’ electric vehicle, the Niro EV. Professor Sunwoo Myung-ho, Automotive Engineering Developed an autonomous vehicle Professor Sunwoo Myung-ho is a world-class leader in the field of autonomous vehicles. Last March, professor Sunwoo succeeded in operating a 5G based urban, self-driving automobile for the first time in the world with LG U+. It was the first time that a 5G self-driving car succeeded in driving autonomously through congested urban roads full of vehicles. The key to the autonomous vehicle that his team developed are the high-end sensors and deep-learning-based AI. In fact, sensors such as Lidar, Radar, and cameras recognize the nearby environment, and the AI technology drives and responds to lane changes in the front, rear, and sides of other vehicles. Because corresponding AI technology is based on deep learning, it continuously accumulates and analyzes data such as driving on roads, situations, and variables and continues to evolve on its own. Professor Sung Tae-hyun, Electrical and Biomedical Engineering Enhancement of energy harvesting technology to change waste energy into electricity Energy Harvesting technology, which is the primary research of professor Sung Tae-hyun , is a method using an independent source of current for sensors by converting the light energy of fluorescent light and vibration energy that are being discarded at industrial sites into electric energy. There are various Internet of Things (IoT) sensors on the industrial site. Most are supplied with electricity by wire, which makes the installation site limited. If an energy harvester, used as an independent source of power for sensors, is created, products that utilize IoT sensors can be built in various places. The energy harvesting technology of Professor Sung Tae-hyun’s research team is the world's best. In particular, the Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting technology, effective in converting vibration energy into electrical energy, is most prominent. Additionally, professor Sung stated, “Hanyang university possesses the record of 9.38 mW/cm2, which is 16 times the previous world’s highest value of 0.58 mW/cm2 (previously held by Shanghai Jiao Tong University), and we are reaching for 12 mW/cm2 through this research.” Professor Lee Young-moo, Energy Engineering Developed technology that drops the price of hydrogen fuel cell to 1/10 Professor Lee Young-moo is an expert of polymer engineering, including a separator, carbon dioxide separation, fuel cells, and polymer materials. He is also famous for serving as the 14th president of Hanyang University while also continuing his research and even publishing in the Scientific Reports Journal ‘Nature’ during his tenure as president of Hanyang. He developed a hydrogen fuel cell separator, which imitates the moisture retention function of cacti. This technology is expected to lower not only environmental pollution but also the price of electric cars that use hydrogen fuel cells. Hydrogen fuel cells obtain energy through chemical reactions occurring in multiple layers of electrolyte membranes. However, existing electrolyte membranes have a limitation in performance at high temperatures and an inability to maintain moisture for chemical reactions. Professor Lee solved this problem by developing a new membrane modeled after a cactus. With this technology, the hydrogen fuel cell can be made at one-tenth of the existing price, ultimately reducing the price of hydrogen cars by up to 30%. Professor Jang Joon-hyuk, Electronic Engineering Developed a voice recognition technology based on artificial intelligence Professor Jang Joon-hyuk developed ‘Pluto,’ the first embedded AI speaker in Korea that can recognize voices without connecting to the internet. The existing AI speakers produced by domestic IT companies needed to be connected to a cloud server for voice recognition causing a network delay and security issues in the process. Professor Jang solved this problem by applying an embedded method that incorporates a large voice recognition system with a capacity of 200,000 words into the hardware system. To facilitate voice recognition in a long-distance environment, he developed a ‘beamforming’ technology that eliminates noise for smooth, long-distance voice recognition and a ‘speaker recognition technology’ that only recognizes registered user voices and filters any voices coming from the TV. He also conducted university-industry cooperation with global IT companies with such original technologies. Professor Jang is continuously developing voice recognition technology that can control every device with only one’s voice similar to his other completed technologies like Bixby of Samsung, AI car doctor and voice recognition engine of Hyundai Motors, Q Voice of LG, and ‘Chloe,’ an Incheon International Airport guide robot. * The list of researchers follows the (Korean) alphabetical order.

To Ardent You, made by students from the Department of Theater and Film, has been registered on the short film category of the '23rd Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFAN)', which was held until August 7th. This film, presented as the first film of the 'Fantastic Short Film 7 Masterpieces' (a BIFAN rule that combines 5 short films and presents them within 90 minutes), came into the spotlight for having the youngest director as well as being an undergraduate student made film. It is rare to have undergraduates’ workshop films in a big scale film festival. Kim Ji-hong (a junior from the Department of Theater and Film), who took charge of the directing and scripting of To Ardent You, shared his story. ▲ A poster of the 23rd BIFAN: Kim Ji-hong (a junior from the Department of Theater and Film) submitted To Ardent You to the film festival. (Photo courtesy of the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival) To Ardent You is a short film, made as a sophomore workshop in the Department of Theater and Film during the second semester of 2018. The plot is based on an imagination that the main character is suffering from the other characters while making comics. The characters force the other character to choose further plots, and he falls into total confusion. Kim cheered himself while projecting burdensome feelings that he wants to make a good film after being discharged from military service. In order to make a film, a lot of people are necessary including actors, editors, a camera crew, lighting engineers, and directors. All of the staff and actors of To Ardent You are Hanyang undergraduates. This is a rare case even though it is an undergraduate workshop film. Kim asked all of them to join. ▲A steel-cut of To Ardent You. This movie was made as a sophomore workshop during the fall semester of 2018. (Photo courtesy of Kim) Films made for workshops infrequently make a contract with distribution agencies since they have a rare chance for screening. To enlist the film without distributors, complex sequences are to be solved. Kim said, "I might as well wanted to register this here and there." He also continued, "People around me suggested I register for BIFAN since the style of the film goes well with that of BIFAN's. Not only was the atmosphere of the filming site good, but I also thought that keeping the file stuck in my hard drive and not being shown is not a manner for staff and actors, who devoted themselves to this project." ▲Kim explains his own directing techniques. "I think after excluding favored techniques that are widely used, this allows me to think of better ideas. For dialogue scenes, the over the shoulder shot (a shot that is taken from the perspective or camera angle from the shoulder of another person) is frequently used, but if I suppose this cannot be used, I can get a number of other ideas as well." About the film festival, he said: "I felt sorry that we found some fibrillation that we could not see at screens while monitoring." For now, To Ardent You will not be shown furthermore. Kim is thinking of registering Maggots, Scatter in the '24th Busan International Film Festival (Short Film)' in October and in the '2019 Seoul Independent Film Festival' in November. "The story is based on a gloomy atmosphere, unlike other films I've made," added Kim, "My goal is to keep trying new things while filming."
On a seemingly quiet summer day on the campus of Hanyang, the rumbling, thunderous sounds of an excavator can be heard coming from somewhere, on a campus that's seemingly so still and tranquil. This noise is the result of the ongoing construction of the track and field stadium, a new underground parking lot, and the Future Education Building for the School of Nursing. In fact, the sounds of construction have never actually ceased at Hanyang and have been an ongoing presence ever since the opening of the school in 1939. Let's learn some more about this ongoing construction currently happening during the summer of 2019. Construction site photos for the track and field artificial turf stadium and the new underground parking lot below: ▲ The pedestrian and vehicle movement flow plan due to the track and field stadium construction and new construction of the underground parking lot (Photo courtesy of the Facility Maintenance Team) ▲ The image displays the track and field stadium construction and the new construction of the underground parking lot with a completion date set for March 31st of next year. (Photo courtesy of the Facility Maintenance Team) Construction of the track and field stadium began on November 20th of last year. There are two main distinctions in its construction: (1) the underground parking lot below the track and field stadium which resolves the issue of parking space deficiency and (2) the sports facilities that will include an artificial turf soccer field, basketball courts, track and field, and a running track. Hanyang University closed the pedestrian passage from the Engineering Building Ⅱ along with the Law Building Ⅲ, where a tree decoration was installed. The construction is expected to end on March 31st of next year. New construction photos of the Future Education Building for the School of Nursing below: ▲ The construction site of the Future Education Building for the School of Nursing with a date of completion set for July 31st of next year ▲ The image shows the new construction plot plan of the Future Education Building for the School of Nursing. The Future Education Building will be built left of the Hanyang Institute of Technology (HIT). (Photo courtesy of the Facility Maintenance Team) ▲ Pedestrians are walking around the construction barricade of the Future Education Building for the School of Nursing. The new construction for the School of Nursing began on July 15th of last year. The Future Education Building for the School of Nursing is an exclusive building for the Division of Nursing, a 6-story building between HIT and Hanyang University Hospital. Vehicle entry and exit is restricted near the Business Administration Building and the Multi-disciplinary Lecture Hall due to this construction. It is expected to be completed by July 31st. Shin Gyu-chul, an employee for the Facility Maintenance Team, said that around 28 small scale facilities are under ongoing construction besides the ones mentioned above, including the extension work for the Comax Startup Town and the painting of the exterior for Music Halls Ⅰand Ⅱ. “Currently we are designing the 6th and 7th residence halls, the biomedical research building, and machinery building.” The construction continues even during the hot summer for the convenience and welfare of Hanyang University members. “All employees of the Facility Maintenance Team are putting much effort into the construction site inspection management. Please understand with a wide heart if there are inconveniences regarding passing, noise, or dust during construction,” said Shin.

Instead of staying on campus during the exam period, Hanyang University students headed to the DHL Korea headquarters in Seoul. This was to present an on-site project with DHL, where students prepared an answer to the question, 'How can exporting e-commerce companies use DHL instead of other express logistics companies?' The lively discussion at the scene seemed like a meeting of DHL employees, but it was actually the final exam scene of Hanyang University's Management Problem Solving Practice class. The students received in-depth basic training and had a Q&A session on e-commerce duties from the DHL staff in advance. They also acquired on-site knowledge needed to complete the assignment by visiting the DHL gateway directly. In addition to DHL, Hanyang students are taking special classes to receive projects from various companies. This teaching method is ‘IC-PBL(Industry Coupled Problem Based Learning)’, an outstanding educational model unique to Hanyang University. What is Hanyang University’s IC-PBL? Hanyang University provides specialized PBL education to strengthen the connection between the university and industries. IC-PBL refers to Industry-Coupled Problem-Based Learning. In this context, Industry means society as a whole beyond the industry itself. In Hanyang’s IC-PBL class model: (1) companies directly deliver the project to the students, (2) the students design a class scenario using the given topic. Then, (3) based on the scenario, lectures will be organized to have discussions and trainings, and lastly, (4) students will be evaluated by company experts. IC-PBL can be divided according to different class types as follows. ‘Merge: field integrated type’; ‘Evaluate: on-site evaluation type’; ‘Create: problem solving type’; ‘Anchor: on-site problem type’ (Refer to the diagram below). As of 2018, a total of 28 companies are participating in the IC-PBL program and the number is increasing every year. Why IC-PBL? Conventional university lectures were mostly teacher-centered; students passively take in the lectures, and receive good grades on the subject by memorizing lecture notes. However, this approach has only made students passive, and they lacked the ability to find answers on their own. One of ‘The 10 skills you need to thrive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution’ presented by the World Economic Forum is 'Problem Solving Ability'. In the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution, it is crucial to foster problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, as well as cooperation skills to solve problems, rather than simple memorization. In line with this, universities have the duty of finding and innovating more effective teaching methods. Hanyang University's IC-PBL teaching model is one of the best teaching methods for this demand. By expanding on-site practical learning in classes and carrying out problem-solving projects, students can naturally cultivate ‘creativity’ through generating new ideas, through the ‘ability to cooperate’ and through ‘critical thinking’ to make a rational decision among team members. As a result, these lectures help students improve their problem solving skills. The performance of introducing IC-PBL classes has also been steadily shown. The number of students taking IC-PBL classes at Hanyang University increased dramatically from 96 in 2016 to 4,015 in 2018. At the same time, the class satisfaction rate rose from 3.7 to 4.0. The rise in education satisfaction is largely attributed to the fact that students are leading the class, unlike conventional classes. In fact, the students had to put a lot of effort, but they said that they had much to learn. The IC-PBL class can kill two birds with one stone by increasing students' educational satisfaction and improving their problem solving ability. (left) Number of Hanyang students completing IC-PBL classes (right) Satisfaction rate of students completing IC-PBL classes Increasing international interest in IC-PBL classes Hanyang University's IC-PBL class in line with industry-university cooperation is also attracting international attention. This can be proven by the fact that Hanyang University's IC-PBL class is listed at the UNESCO PBL Center. On the PBL Center page, hosted by AALBORG University in Denmark and sponsored by UNESCO, introduces PBL cases from 20 universities around the world for the exchange and development of PBL curriculum, and Hanyang University’s IC-PBL is also listed as a representative example. (https://www.ucpbl.aau.dk) Moreover, Hanyang's IC-PBL homepage shows that various institutions are paying attention to the program. The website, opened with the establishment of the IC-PBL Center in September of 2016, allows viewers to download IC-PBL cases, forms, and materials. It is a very active community for sharing information. The cumulative number of downloads by universities and educational institutions in Korea and abroad through the website is approximately 7,500. (http://pbl.hanyang.ac.kr) Efforts to Spread – IC-PBL TIP Program IC-PBL is also of great interest to the Korean government. In July of 2019, Ministers in charge of personnel management of Korean government officials and 34 personnel from 9 government agencies visited the Hanyang IC-PBL center to participate in the program called IC-PBL TIP (Hereinafter referred to as TIP). TIP is a program designed specifically to drive diffusion and innovation by sharing the best practices with IC-PBL excellence. In addition to the designated programs, TIP offers customized courses for the applicant group. To devise a new paradigm shift in human resource development of government agencies, officials participated in the '1 day TIP' that includes the following programs: (1) consulting managers preparing for the introduction and upgrade of the IC-PBL curriculum, (2) developing scenarios to successfully lead the IC-PBL class, (3) preparing an optimized operational plan, and (4) experiencing new educational approaches by sharing successful IC-PBL classes. Hanyang University has successfully introduced the IC-PBL classes that communicate with industry for the first time in Korea. Hanyang shares the know-how of IC-PBL operation with universities and institutions around the world. Hanyang is leading the ‘Sharing Education’ paradigm.
