The “e-Newsletter”, Toyohashi University of Technology (Toyohashi Tech)’s online magazine, has been relaunched.
Toyohashi Tech’s e-Newsletter was first published in October 2010 as an online magazine focusing on research review and international relations. A total of 18 issues have been published in this format. The e-Newsletter will now be rebranded as “TUT Research: e-Newsletter from Toyohashi University of Technology “with a refreshed content and web page design.
In the years since the launch of the original newsletter, Toyohashi Tech has significantly developed its international public relations capability. For example, we have created an English version of the official Toyohashi Tech Web site, established an English language presence on social media such as Facebook and Twitter, and provide university information bilingually (Japanese and English). Our efforts have been recognized and enhanced by the Japanese government, which recently awarded us Top Global University status.
Significant challenges remain however, such as the ever increasing need to publish our latest research achievements globally. In order to respond to this changing environment, Toyohashi Tech has decided to sharpen the focus of this online magazine to global research and international relations by relaunching the newsletter with a new name, content and design.
We sincerely hope that the renewed “TUT Research: e-Newsletter from Toyohashi University of Technology” will contribute to your research and technology development.
Thank you for your continuous subscription and support.
Toyohashi University of Technology held various programs for students in first half of the year 2015
Toyohashi Tech has commenced a program of 2 month overseas internships with local and multi national companies located in Penang, Malaysia since 2014. Using our overseas education base in Penang (TUT-USM Penang), the second group of ten 4th year undergraduate students successfully completed the program, from 12 January to 25 February 2015.
A Program of overseas study and training for eighteen selected undergraduate students was implemented at TUT-USM Penang from 15 to 23 March.
The students discussed various topics with eighteen students of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and had a good chance to get to know each other. In addition, they visited global companies and historical world heritage sites in Penang.
Five students from Queens College of the City University of New York (QC) experienced training as part of the exchange program from 1 to 12 June.
At Toyohashi Tech the QC students took lectures from each department as well as basic Japanese language classes. They deepened the cultural aspect of the exchange by joining the student’s club activities such as robotics, traditional martial arts, animation and comics. Cultural and technological study trips included a visit to the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology and experiencing Japanese culture, tea ceremony and flower arrangement.
Toyohashi Tech is one of 37 Japanese universities chosen for the MEXT Program ‘Top Global University Project’
The Top Global University Project, established by Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), was outlined in a special public announcement published on 27 March 2015 in AAAS Science Magazine.
