Commencement Speech of the President

Dear Graduates

Congratulations on your completion of the doctoral degree program or the master's degree program at JAIST. I would like to extend my congratulations to your parents and other family members as well as your professors.

I respect all of you as you have completed your courses under the difficult situation caused by the spread of novel coronavirus infection.

JAIST has created world-leading research achievements in the broad area of advanced science and technology, and fostered excellent graduates like you.

"The Outline of Concept of Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology" made for the establishment of JAIST set the purposes to fostering and reeducating advanced researchers and engineers as well as promoting higher basic research in the field of advanced science and technology. This spirit is inherited in the Future Vision of JAIST enacted in January last year. JAIST aims to become a world's top research university and fosters students who will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the world.

Do you think what you have studied and acquired at JAIST?
I believe you have studied and acquired more than what you can remind now.

What matters most for you from now on is what you can do in the society. Please create excellent achievements by making the best use of knowledge and abilities as well as human relationship you have acquired at JAIST.Students who will enter our doctoral degree program will have deeper and wider experiences at JAIST.

Today, the world is facing a serious problem of war in addition to the spread of the novel coronavirus infection. I think building the good and intimate human relationship is the most important thing to establish a peaceful world. In JAIST, you had a wonderful time with a variety of students and professors coming from many countries. It must be effective to build a global human relationship.

Together with many former graduates of JAIST, all of you attending this ceremony will surely contribute to establish the peaceful world and contribute to develop it.

I strongly hope all of you make your best efforts for the future of the world as well as for the future of yourself.

In closing my speech, on behalf of JAIST faculty and staff members, I would like to congratulate all of you, again.

Congratulations and good luck!
