Factory Tour at Showa Denko Ceramics
On July 18, as part of "Practical Study in Textile Fundamentals" course, 10 of the program students (4 first-year, 3 second-year, and 3 fourth-year students) visited the Shiojiri Plant operated by Showa Denko Ceramics Co., Ltd. in the city of Shiojiri, Nagano Prefecture. Showa Denko Ceramics manufactures a wide range of ceramic products and the students toured their production facility. After the tour, the company conducted a question-and-answer session followed by a roundtable session in small groups where to discuss not only its operation but also recruitment policy or job hunting in general; the company's personnel were all very attentive. Something else left a good impression on us is that every personnel we met during the tour welcomed us with a smile. The Leading Program would like to take this opportunity to express its heartfelt gratitude to Showa Denko Ceramics for their warm hospitality.
