Korea's Yonsei University Student Branch

○ Motivation

  East Asia is the core region for the display industry and research. However, the technology exchange between the academy and industry has been carried out by professional research groups, not by the semi-professional or student research group. The SID Yonsei Student Branch is aimed to offer a varied program including company promotion, workshop, and seminar to the students. Our branch aspires to be the perfect link between students and professionals.

 Location of domestic FPD cluster and Yonsei University

  Samsung display and LG display are leading companies in display industry, and these companies are based on Korea. Yonsei student branch located at Seoul has many advantages of easiness to associate with advanced display companies.

 Overview
