(http://mebk21plus.unist.ac.kr/main/main.php) BK21 PLUS PROJECT Team of UNIST Mechanical Engineering Department is aiming for “Creative Design Research and Education for Human Friendly Future Mechanical System and Training of High-Quality Human Resources through Education”. For this purpose, this Team is aimed at training the core design human resources for taking the lead in the creative economy of the Ulsan region and Korea as well by developing quality educational programs of the future mechanical system, and carrying out the world-class level of research in the field of human-friendly intelligence robots, multi-dimensional, multi-physics & future-oriented convergence mechanical system.

Center for 3D Printing Advanced Additive Manufacturing

3d

The Center for 3D Advanced Additive Manufacturing Research (3D AM Center) aims to develop industrial application technologies of ‘Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM)’ for major industries in Korea and Ulsan. With the concept of DfAM (the use of new materials, multi-scale Finite Element Analysis (FEA)-based design optimization, AM process optimization in 3D printing, reliability of AM processes and products), the center supports to industrial collaborative research and business development of AM technology toward the 4th industrial revolution.

Center for Autonomous Unmanned Monitoring Systems(CAMS; selected as a key university research institute supported by the Ministry of Education)

Once established in July 2014 under the name of CAPs (Center for Advanced Pseudo-Satellite), the research center was renamed to CAMS Center for Autonomous unmanned Monitoring Systems on February 2019 to contribute to environmental safety, development of new local industries, and fostering global high-quality human resources in related fields in Ulsan, via advanced research in autonomous unmanned systems, environmental monitoring sensors, and disaster prevention. The main research field consists of environmental sensors and robots, autonomous unmanned systems, advanced materials and processing, thermal and fluid analysis, environmental and disaster management. The research center has been selected as a university-focused research institute for science and engineering designated by the Ministry of Education in 2020.

Center for Evolutionary Nuclear Technology and Engineering Research

차세대 원자로 시스템 연구소

A unique and highly-proliferation-resistant, ultra-long cycle fast reactor (UCFR) concept is expected to be developed, which can contribute to the management of the domestic PWR spent fuel. The new UCFR concept is only weakly subject to the Korea-US nuclear agreement and can be used for a future domestic fast reactor development. A ultra-long life core materials are expected to be developed in this center and they can also be utlized in the on-going national fast reactor programs. A successful fulfillment of this project will lead to development of world-leading key technologies for UCFR. It aims to develop a high-performance, unique UCFR concept and ultra-long life reactor materials for UCFR.
