FY 2016 Annual End of Year Presentation Report
The annual end of year presentation for the academic year 2016 was held on January 24, 2017. We had about 100 attendees including the third-party evaluation committee members (stakeholders) and outside individuals who's been supporting this program. 24 program students were given 10 minutes each to present their research progress and their future plans in English.
This time as we have 8 more students than the last year, it was a day-long event, we invited guest judges from a partner university in overseas (Prof. Thomas Rosenau from University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna) and from two companies (Nippon Felt Co., Ltd. and Mimaki Engineering Co., Ltd.) for the first time. We asked the judges to evaluate the students based on the 5 skills and abilities we the program wish the students to develop, and the company guests to check the students from the point of view of recruiting.
It was the second time for the students to operate the annual presentation session, there were some obvious improvements from the last year; they were excellent to keep the time and they made themselves available to ask questions during the Q&A sessions.
Our sincere thank you goes to all guests and the audience who encouraged the students and offered their warm advice.
