The annual design exhibition, entitled UNIST Design Showcase 22, kicked-off this week, featuring the artworks created by imminently graduating students of Design Department at UNIST.
The UNIST Design Department conducts education and research that combines science and technology into design and engineering to create products and services that make real-world impacts. In this exhibition, they will be also showcasing their research works, educational results, along with the undergraduate graduation projects in three sub-exhibition spaces.
The grand opening ceremony of the UNIST Design Showcase 22 took place on November 8, 2022. The ceremony has been attended by UNIST President Yong Hoon Lee and other distinguished guests from both inside and outside of the organization.
