Multi-Layered and Constructive Framework

step1Participation in International Seminars/Workshops

International seminars and workshops are held in Japan and India in cooperation with partner institutions. The purpose of these seminars/workshops is to improve students’ proficiencies in technical communication and self-assertion in English by presentations and discussions. It is expected, especially through the workshops held in India, to promote the understanding of different cultures and see academic/research/industrial situation in India (e.g. specific difficulties, needs and potentials in each research field) by exchanges of opinions with local students and visiting Japanese companies’ branches in India.

Participation in International Seminars/Workshops

step2Short-term Research in India

Students attend the host institutions in India and are supervised by the professors as members of their laboratories for a certain period of time. Through this research experience, it is expected that students acquire the ability to express their own opinions, understand and summarize different opinions from others, and propose a solution to subjects or tasks in a group discussion.

Student Voice

Kazuhiro Masuda, D2, School of Knowledge Science
India is experiencing the rapid growth of IT industry and I took a trip to an important hub of the industry, Bengaluru. Behind the prosperity of Bengaluru as known as “The Silicon Valley of India”, there is a presence of academic institutions as facilities for producing superior human resources, and this time I visited Indian Institute of Science (IISc), which is playing a role in those facilities. People in Bengaluru, especially in IISc, are kind and friendly and I felt they are compatible with Japanese. I also visited Japanese companies’ branches in India and could sense a huge surge occurring in India. I assume deepening our understanding of Indian society including their languages, customs and religions will hereafter assist mutual development of both India and Japan. If allowed the opportunity, I would like to visit India again and hold discussions.

Through visiting India, I could feel the country’s energy from many different angles and got a broad view of my research and future career. Especially, it was a good opportunity to learn approaches of global companies which have operation in India, research activities at a partner institution and social situation there. There seems to be a lot of chances for business and research when we see India in ordinary life in Japan. I feel that a variety of growths of the world can be imagined if countries deepen exchanges each other and I would like to see the world with wide perspective.
