UNLV Ajou University Winter Research Session

2016 started off with a visit from Ajou University. Dr. Chang and twelve of his students came to UNLV to present their research and explore entertainment engineering & design (EED) in Las Vegas. Seven UNLV Students volunteered to collaborate and exchanged ideas regarding each research topic; as well joining them in other EED related events. The research session began with a Poster Research Session by Ajou students as well as UNLV academics involved in research. The following day, the group went to the Venetian to get a behind the scenes tour of two of their theaters.  During the week of their visit, CES 2016 was occurring, which was another opportunity for students to explore. Overall, both Universities had a great time and intend to continue such projects in the near future!
