SNUST (aka Seoul National University of Science and Technology) is one of the oldest and more established National University Industrial Design programs in the nation, and is well known for its industry-university cooperation. I've taught ID studio and Concept Design classes since 2008. ... 0420000586

Nice to meet you...

If anyone finds themselves in Hangzhou 杭州 40 minutes out of Shanghai Hongqiao station feel free to message me. We are awash in loughborough and Brunel undergrads in this city (not necessarily a good thing :wink: ) and would welcome any other designers out here.

Sorry to say if you don't have a terminal degree or are totally famous your chances of getting a full time gig at Hongik are pretty slim. But there are lots of resources in seoul for making things, like cheonggyecheon area for materials and fabrication and yongsan for electronics. How long have you guys been here?
Thanks for the heads up, and sorry for the late reply. I kind of thought that would be the case. I wouldn't mind being able to network with the Korean ID community though - are there any opportunities for this?

I'm doing a little bit of graphics work on the side while I'm here, but not really keeping up with the ID stream

I only arrived in late April.

That reminds me....

Oct 5 - Oct 22 in Shenzhen (with a week's vacation in the middle to travel Tibet - anyone in Lhasa then?).

Amazing! I'm good friends with quite a few of the students from the SNUT industrial design department. Met them through the Seoul design festival in 2010 and started studying transport design through their study group "Clotho". They helped spark my interest in automotive design! I added you on Linkedin, hope to talk to you more soon.

I'm interested in some of the programs Hongik are offering. Anyway to contact you for some inside info?

Cool to see that foreign designers are doing well in Korea. I'm in New Zealand at the moment, hope to be back in "sparkling Seoul" by December.^^

Hi Guys,

I'll be in Asia travelling and researching opportunites for the next 10 months or so. Looking to network and meet like minded creative ID'ers.

Australia: February-May
China: May-August

If you'r a designer based out there and wouldn't mind showing a UK product designer what's what let me know. I'm flexable with travel and dates.

Good day designers,

Ive been following Core77 for many years and shame on me for procrastinating to join you all here.

Just a brief intro of myself, my name is Ming and from Malaysia. Currently working as a Senior Industrial Designer with a Design & Engineering Solution Provider in Malaysia.

I frequent travel to China to expedite design discussions with suppliers, managing them, sourcing and visiting expo to broaden up the design & manufacturing horizon to the next level.

Most of the time, I'll be in Dongguan City, GuangDong Province. About 2 hours north of Shenzhen and 2 hours south of Guangzhou.

Looking forward to exchange some pretty interesting experience !.
