SNU Opens Haedong Idea Factory

SNU will open the ‘Haedong Idea Factory,’ a place where students can share ideas and turn those ideas into actual programs or products, in Building No. 39 on March 17. The Haedong Idea Factory was suggested by Ms. Ji Sun LEE (graduate of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering) who, after witnessing the Sewol Ferry Disaster, wanted to create a disaster prevention system. College of Engineering Dean LEE Kunwoo picked up the idea, and Haedong Science Foundation Chairman KIM Jung-sik provided the necessary funds. The Haedong Idea Factory will have hardware such as a 3D printer, scanner, laser cutter, instruments for cutting metal and wood and it will provide students with classes on diverse subjects including design, tool usage, and acquiring patents. SNU plans to further support students by offering start-up mentoring sessions so students can commercialize their products.
