MAYMESTER: ENGINEERING COMMUNICATION IN SEOUL, KOREA

 

LOCATION CHANGED TO BARCELONA, SPAIN FOR 2021. Seoul is a city that has been influenced, directly and significantly, by the growth of technology. The city has been at the epicenter of South Korea's industrialization and modernization, making it home to major corporations in a variety of engineering-focused industries. In addition, the culture has modernized, and many of the technical innovations and achievements of the past half century have been adopted early and widely in the city. This Engineering Communication Maymester course provides opportunities for students to connect their technical work to the real world. The rapidity of that change, the remaining artifacts of the city's pre-industrial past, and the rich and complicated political history of South Korea will help in showing students a larger context for engineering technology: factors that influence its development as well as those that are influenced by it.
