IPLP is an international collaborative program that has been running every year between Hong Kong and Korea since 2014. Centered around design, a diverse group of students with different major concentrations get together in teams of 5 or 6 to exchange culture and technological knowledge, all while developing global perspectives.

This year, a total of 29 students (10 from HKUST, 11 from SKKU, and 8 from universities affiliated with CIEE) participated in IPLP, demonstrating their boundless creativity. HKUST and SKKU each prepared a workshop enriching technological and cultural exchange.

Director of the Center for Innovative Engineering Education, Prof. Ji-Beom YOO, said, “Cultural exchange and knowledge sharing between students enable peer learning, which is tremendously valuable. I will further support and encourage facilitation of multicultural and multidisciplinary learning between Hong Kong and Korea”.
