[SEOUL = Whowired] Sep 30, 2011 - GM Korea Company hosted the opening ceremony of the three-day 2011 GM Korea University Auto Camp starting from Sep 30 in Incheon, where the company is based. Participating in the camp are 160 students selected from universities nationwide.

A student in his junior year who is participating in the program said, “I’ve always loved cars, so I am really excited about the camp. It wasn’t easy to get this opportunity. I hope to learn and experience a lot through the program.”
The GM Korea University Auto Camp was created in 2006 with the purpose of helping students better understand the automotive industry by visiting manufacturing sites and experiencing the vehicle development process.
