SEE Cultural Study Tour to South Korea 2014

"S-E-E !"
"One", "two", "three", "four", … , "fourteen", "fifteen", "sixteen"

The cultural study tour to South Korea organized by the School of Energy and Environment (SEE) from 1 to 5 June 2014 kicked off with the counting off among the 16 participating students.

This is the second overseas study tour organized by the School for the undergraduate students during the summer break. Every time the students heard the signal "S-E-E", they would number off to ensure that nobody in the group was lost. That somehow simultaneously cheered the students up as well especially when some of them had not been completely awaken for early departure from the hotel to the designated spots.

The delegation of 16 students, led by Professor Johnny Chan, Dr. Patrick Lee and Miss Michelle Wong, experienced an enjoyable but demanding tour, such as spending quite plenty of time on travelling between the hotel and the various visiting sites, namely Inha University, Sihwa-Lake Tidal Power Plant, Korea Research Institute of Ships & Ocean Engineering (KRISO) and Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER) which are located at different cities/towns. Having said that, it is absolutely worthwhile paying the visits as the students had enhanced their knowledge in renewable energy fields through the out-of-classroom learning at such leading energy research institutes in the region. More details can be found in the students' sharing underneath.
