All of the applicants are to solve a set of mathematical problems within the given time limit. The problems are based on what they have learned so far during their engineering course.
The test took place as a part of the fall festival called Gong-Nol-I which is an academic festival of Hanyang University's both College of Engineering and Architecture.
The student with the highest score will receive commendation medal and scholarship under 700,000 won. There had been 32 students in total who won the prize so far.
