What did you experience and learn for the last semester? What kind of creative solutions did you come up with? Overall, what did you accomplish? Not only making great accomplishments but also sharing them is also meaningful. Let’s find out what accomplishments that Sangmyung University’s students made for the last semester!
Creative-Convergence Performance Contest Held Last Semester
The creative-convergence performance contest of Sangmyung University is a competition held every semester with the aim of sharing the performance of “Sangmyung Oreum education” linking major, liberal arts, and comparative curriculums to foster students' self-directed learning capability, creative convergence problem solving skills, and cooperative learning skills. It had been held offline on campus since 2015. However, in the second semester last year, due to Covid-19, it was held as an one-and-off-line convergence based on the O2O(online-to-online) service .
There were presentations of students through Webex(Real-time online video conferencing program) on the achievements of creative convergence education programs such as the Capstone Design Contest, Oreum-Start program, SM-URP, presentation contest, Study-Mutual-Plus, etc. In the second part of the event that followed, a K-MOOC special lecture "Human Intelligence, Agent Intelligence" was broadcast live.
Various Achievements of Students
What contests did Sangmyung University students participate in? What did they do in the contest? Let me introduce a few.
Firstly, Capstone Design Contest. It is a program sharing major-linked results made through major-deepening education courses. For example, “umm team” from the Living Arts major designed a new type of wall-hanging folding chair, breaking the uniformity of the same folding chair. They said that they asked for a lot of advice on Euljiro Street for the frame-type design.
You can participate in a team consisting of three to ten students who take the Capstone Design course. It is divided into major tracks & industry-academic-linked tracks, and accordingly, you can apply for the support fund. For more information, check out a notice from the last semester :
Second, Oreum-Start program. It is a program for the freshmen that set activity goals for one semester, choosing team project assignments that professors set in the class or topics which students are interested in. For example, team “Sangmyung games” from Game major, developed a puzzle game based on the JAVA programming that they learned during the semester. They said that in the process of developing the game they learned a lot by undergoing trial and error - therefore, they became skillful in Java language and gained experience in programing and game development.
A team consisting of three to seven students can participate, and each team will get a 300,000 won scholarship.For more information, check out a notice from the last semester :
Third, SM-URP program. It is a program that conducts academic research activities with the aim of presenting academic conferences under the guidance of professors. For example, team “SM-UP” from the Global Management major, wrote an academic paper titled “Suggestion of the Growth Direction of Domestic Pharmaceutical Industry Through the Analysis of Innovative Pharmaceutical Companies in Korea.” It aimed at suggesting a direction to latecomers by analyzing Celltrion, a global life company.
Two to five students except the freshmen can participate, and each team can get a 600,000 won scholarship after submitting the result.

Fourth, Sangmyung Presentation contest. Unlike the contests mentioned above, individuals or pairs of students can participate. It is a contest making a presentation on a given topic, and the topic of the last semester was “Non-contact era, what about us?” For example, a student, Choi Sung-ji, from the Korean Language Education major, made a presentation about the suffering of the disabled she felt in the non-contact era through external activities. She said through her presentation, there will be a growing social awareness of the disabled who will feel “non-contact” as an eternal pain. Moreover, as we share the various presentations, students will naturally be able to improve their communication skills.
The contest has preliminary rounds, and it awards the Grand prize / the Most Excellent prize / the Excellent prize. For more information, check out a notice from the last semester :
Additionally, there are so many other programs or contests for students to strengthen their abilities. If you want to see what kind of contests there were last semester, click the links :
Sharing achievements with others motivates students to learn and experience a lot. Whether you win the awards or not, watching the achievements of others will have a great impact on your future development. You can also aim at awards or scholarships. Furthermore, it would be better if these kinds of opportunities for performance sharing are also arranged to each major like a recent assignment contest of the Animation major or a class teaching contest of Education majors. The more performance-sharing opportunities open, the more development both our university and students will make!
