Ho Yong Ju, a researcher at the Faculty of Heat Engineering, introduced virtual reality technology to the practice at thermoelectric power plants, thus raising remarkably the teaching density and the cognition effect among his students.

The effectiveness is as follows.

First, as they can control any equipment in a virtual control room, they are able to notice the changes in the parameters of the plant and it becomes easier for them to be familiar with methods and characteristics of operation control.

Second, it saves time and practice procedures since all students can learn before necessary equipment in one room at the same time. In the past, it took a lot of time as the production site could hold only a few students in front of the machines at a time.

Third, it is possible for students to look closely at the structure and operation of all machines in a virtual situation. It leads to the raised efficiency of the practice.
