Top high school students from Asia invited to TUT
18 Jul 2017
TUT - High School Students Invitation Program 2017 was held from June 26th to July 1st and from July 3rd to July 8th. 19 students and 8 teachers, representing 8 high schools from Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Mongolia and Thailand were invited to join a program at Toyohashi University of Technology (TUT).
This kind of program, inviting high school students from Asian countries to visit our university in order to promote study abroad in Japan, was the third time for TUT. The schools we invited are all top-level high schools that typically send many graduates to study abroad. The students themselves were all candidates to join our upcoming new "Global Technology Architect Course", which launched in April 2017.
Their plan had many experiences: research activities and campus life in TUT, Japanese culture and an exchange meeting with Japanese high school students in Toyohashi.
Furthermore, they visited TOYOTA Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology to learn a history of manufacture in Japan.
TUT will continue to promote our university in Asia, and to increase the intake of international high school graduates to study technology at TUT in Japan.
