ISE ADME-HRAP Special Talk Session for supporting academic knowledge-sharing
ISE ADME-HRAP Special Talk Session for supporting academic knowledge-sharing On November 22, 2022, Automotive Design and Manufacturing Engineering (ADME) program by Introduction to Automotive Engineering Course invited an honorable guest speaker representative from Honda R&D Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. (HRAP) for knowledge sharing and university and industry joint power link us together. This year we went so far as to bring design simulations like the Clay Model and VR from the real world of design to our classroom, in which every student has the experience to try to understand how to integrate the working functionality of car design and engineering to build the car. Moreover, we created particular topics and content for ADME students to get exclusive insight from the well-known workplace like HRAP: Automotive Industry Trend & Product Planning, Styling Design in Automotive Development Process, Engineering Design, Problems solving, and Production process. Hopefully, we can be corporate to build knowledge based between industry and university, and Honda R&D Asia Pacific Co., Ltd will keep R&D in Thailand along the road infinitely. Thank you very much, HRAP team, for sharing knowledge with us. The professional team created by Asst. Prof. Sunhapos Chantranuwathana, Asst. Prof. Nuksit Noomwong, Assoc. Prof. Chanat Ratanasumawong, and Ajarn Chatchanee Pakavatsoontorn
