Joint University Korea Delegation 2011 (26th June to 30th June)


Continuing the success of overseas study tour in the past years, the Student Liaison Group (SLG) and the organizing committee from the Division has held the Korea Delegation on 26th June to 30th June visiting the metropolitan Seoul and Busan, broadening the knowledge of the student delegates out of Hong Kong!


We arrived South Korea at Incheon International Airport and visited Cheongggyecheon, which showed a delightful nature with fresh flowing water.  The creek had once been polluted due to rapid development of the city.  The Seoul Government had put high effort in restoring the dried Cheongggyecheon and subsequently made the region a more comfortable leisure area in Seoul.


On the second day, we visited the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Seoul National University (SNU). In additional to the welcoming address by the Department and the laboratory visit, a student symposium was held where the Hong Kong and Korean students shared their views on engineering education and careers in their localities.  Under their companion, we also visited the Mapo Resource Recovery Plant and the Hanuel Park of the World Cup Park, which display high technology in preserving and rehabilitating the area where was once a 90m high rubbish hill.


We travelled to Gumi and arrived the Kumoh National Institute of Technology (KIT) on the 3rd day.  Professor KT Chang showed us his research result on application Fiber Optics System (FOS) for civil works monitoring. FOS responded to changes in temperature and deformation of structures.  He demonstrated the experiment in the application of fire detection, pipe leakage detection, concrete casting defects detection and real-time slope monitoring, etc.  We were offered chance to inspect a real case application of FOS in monitoring bore pile casting as well.
