Prof.s Steve French and Bruce Stiftel establish partnership with Hanyang University (South Korea)
Professors Steve French and Bruce Stiftel of Georgia Tech's School of City & Regional Planning traveled to Seoul, South Korea, to formalize an international partnership with Hanyang University, one of the leading universities in South Korea. The trip, culminating in an official memorandum of understanding signing ceremony, offered a chance for faculty from each university to learn more about the research and long-term visions being pursued by their international counterpart. Professor French delivered a lecture on integrated infrastructure and faculty from Hanyang University outlined the changing role of universities in a global marketplace. Georgia Tech’s School of City & Regional Planning and Hanyang University’s Department of Urban Planning & Engineering agreed to seek joint research opportunities and to facilitate student exchanges. Further details of the partnership will be determined through a faculty workshop later this year.
