OSU’s Division of Engineering Technology partners with institution in South Korea

(STILLWATER, Okla., February 21, 2017) – CEAT’s Division of Engineering Technology partnered with the Kumoh National Institute of Technology (KIT) in South Korea to host three visiting student interns at the Stillwater campus.

Hochul Noh, Jinho Jung and Jaein Lee, junior students in the department of mechanical engineering at KIT, participated in a five-week program. During their stay, they attended mechanical engineering technology classes, gained hands-on experience in CEAT’s labs and created projects.

The students designed an electro-pneumatic system controlled by an embedded system named Arduino for the final phase of their internship.

“One of the benefits of the projects is that we learned new things,” says Noh. “It was our first time to control a pneumatic system, and we had to learn how to control things like the air pressure.”

The Division of Engineering Technology is focused on sustaining its partnerships with international institutions. Other programs, such as electrical and computer engineering and fire protection and safety engineering technology, also foster relationships with universities in China and Vietnam.

“We hope to strengthen the relationship between the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology and KIT,” says Tim Huff, international students and scholars manager. “It’s a good opportunity for our academic units to become closely involved.”
