The Final Presentation of the 2015 Interdisciplinary Convergence Capstone Design Takes Place on Campus
The final presentation of the 2015 Interdisciplinary Convergence Capstone Design took place in the lobby of the Creative Lecture Hall on December 11, 2015. Started in the spring of 2014, the capstone design course offers KAIST’s undergraduate students an opportunity to explore solutions, based on their learning from coursework, to real and important industry and engineering problems. In the class, five students with different majors form a team to discuss and identify what are the problems of a certain company’s products, the causes, and possible design solutions for such problems. After reaching a conclusion, students then manufacture a prototype to address the problems. In this presentation, six teams introduced their research topic and subsequently, demonstrated their trial products. Sung-Hyun Cho, a student majoring in Mechanical Engineering, presented the “Designing a Robot System for Automatic Collection of Radio Maps,” and Jong-Yong Do, also majoring in Mechanical Engineering, showcased his “Sleeping Pattern Measurement Pad.” Topics such as noise measurement, haptic handles, wrinkle improvements by micro-needling, and fingerprint scanners were also discussed. Students who developed these techniques have already finished patent applications, and interested companies are planning to commercialize the techniques after evaluating their marketability. Recently, there were concerns in Korea that engineering students were overly interested in the publication of research papers due to the paper-based evaluation of research outcomes. In response, KAIST has emphasized a more field-centered education to help students gain insightful perspective to real issues in science and engineering. Wan-Su Kim, a student in the Mechanical Engineering Department said that “this course provided me with an invaluable experience to apply engineering principles that I’ve learned from class to the actual field, while sharing ideas and solutions with other students.” Professors Su-Kyung Park and Ik-Jin Lee of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Professor Seok-Hyung Bae of the Department of Industrial Design, Professor Yu-Chun Kim of the Department of Biological Sciences, Professor Dong-Su Han of the School of Computing, and Professor Jun-Bo Youn of the School of Electrical Engineering participated in the course as advisers.
News Article on the Development of Synthesis Process for Graphene Quantum Dots
Before It's News, an international online news agency, highlighted the recent research conducted by KAIST professors (Seokwoo Jeon of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Yong-Hoon Cho of the Department of Physics, and Seunghyup Yoo of the Department of Electrical Engineering) on the development of synthesis process for graphene quantum dots, nanometer-sized round semiconductor nanoparticles that are very efficient at emitting photons. If commercialized, this synthetic technology will lead the way to the development of paper-thin displays in the future.

Dr. Sung-Gu Kim of KARI receives the 10th KAIST Jung-Hun Cho Academic Award
KAIST President Steve Kang awarded the 10th "KAIST Jung-Hun Cho Academic Award" to Dr. Sung-Gu Kim of Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) along with Byeong-Sup Park, a graduate student of KAIST Aerospace Engineering, Hee-Won Chae of Korea University, and Jin-Hyung Noh of Kongju National University High School on May 13, 2014. Dr. Sung-Gu Kim was recognized for his development of a 30-ton class reproduction cooling burner and the securing of essential factor technology for liquid-fuel rocket engines on the Naro project. The KAIST Jung-Hun Cho Academic Award was established to commemorate Jung-Hun Cho who was killed while researching in the rocket laboratory on May 13, 2003. From 2005, young scientists from the Aerospace Engineering field have been recognized every year. One student each from KAIST, Korea University, and Kongju National University High School, where the honorary doctorate Dr. Cho attended, has been chosen as a scholarship recipient. The KAIST Jung-Hun Cho Academic Award was established with USD 460,000 in funds donated from Cho's family.
