Curtin University Subsea Engineering Students Visit Korea as part of AKF funded program

December 15, 2017



Three Master’s students in Subsea Engineering and Associate Professor Stuart Higgins of Curtin University spent time in Korea recently, funded by the Australia-Korean Foundation (AKF).


On Monday 11 September they visited the Samsung Innovation Museum in Seoul and travelled to Pusan on Tuesday. On Wednesday they toured the city of Pusan with other engineering students from Pusan National University (PNU) and attended a welcome ceremony, while on Thursday the group of Curtin and PNU students gave a Symposium on “Improving Productivity using Smart Technologies” to Samsung in their Geoje Island ship-yards (where Shell Prelude was constructed). This was followed by a tour of the offshore fabrication and ship building yards.


The goal during the trip was to promote bilateral relations between Korea and Australia, to develop partnerships in areas of shared interest, and to increase Australia’s capacity to engage with Korea.


The AKBCWA expects to host a function early next year as part of the program.
