17 students, representing 5 partner universities from 4 countries in Asia, were invited to join a program at Toyohashi Tech which ran from August 31st to September 5th.
This program has been held every year since 2003 with the aim of contributing to the development of innovative leaders among the next generation of Asian scientists and engineers.
The visiting students could experience first hand our cutting edge laboratories as well as participate in group discussions with 18 students from Toyohashi Tech on subjects beyond the fields of culture and language.
Basic Japanese language classes, opportunities to sample traditional Japanese culture and visiting a local facility for sustainable energy and resources were also included to give the students a better understanding of culture and technology in Japan.
