SP!ED Opening Ceremony Held
On Friday, 19 August, the Opening Ceremony for the 4th Summer Program for Innovative Engineering Design (SP!ED) was held at Yoshida Campus, Yamaguchi University. Approximately 100 students and 23 faculty members attended the ceremony.
SPIED is a two-week summer program designed for engineering students from Japan, China, Korea and Taiwan. The SP!ED program was launched by Yamaguchi University, Jiangsu University, China and Kunsan National University, Korea. The first SPIED program was hosted by Yamaguchi University in 2013, and every year since then one of the founding member universities has hosted the program. This year, the program has returned to Yamaguchi University with the largest number of participants yet.
Mr. Katsuhisa Hironaka, Vice Governor of Yamaguchi Prefecture, Mr. Zhenliang He, Consul General of the Consulate-General of the People's Republic of China in Fukuoka, and Mr. Jangeun Seo, Consul General of the Consulate-General of the Republic of Korea in Hiroshima, were invited to the ceremony as guests of honor. Dr. Euigyun Na, President of Kunsan National University, accompanied by 10 of his staff, Dr. Yeo-Pyo Yun, President of Chungbuk National University along with 7 of his staff, as well as faculty members from Jiangsu University, China, Chongqing University of Technology, China, and University of Seoul, Korea also attended the ceremony.
Participants from different countries will form teams and work together on planning, designing, producing, and presenting a prototype following the program theme: Life Innovation for Aging Societies. Through the collaborative work and the summer camp, they will gain a deeper understanding of one another and build invaluable cross-border friendships.
The SP!ED Program provides participants with the opportunity to try their hand at manufacturing in a global landscape. It will be held at Yamaguchi Prefecture Seminar Park until 30 August. Later this year, a presentation of theses, "CEDC & ICIARE," is scheduled to be held at Chungbuk National University, Korea on 22-25 December, 2016. The presentation aims to present research outcomes based on SP!ED program results.
