Overseas Study Camp on Environmental and Energy Technology

  • Working as a member of a mixed team of students from various countries, participants understand each other’s environmental issues and identify problems based on their own observations
  • Participants grow by learning from each other, and learn the importance of cross-national collaborative work
  • Participants’ expertise and communication skills are fostered



2016: Busan and Kwangju, South Korea
2017: Can Tho, Vietnam
2018: Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Students’ Voices

  • Since the research conducted at the site we visited during our training related to the same area as my current research, I obtained useful information, and the experience was stimulating.
  • Since international students participate in the training alongside Japanese students, we are able to see them in a different light than when we see them in the classroom. I also recommend the program because I was able to gain valuable experience through discussing the technologies of my own country in comparison with the technologies used by local communities.
  • While talking with local students during training, I experienced firsthand how problems that were not visible in the beginning were identified through discussions. I reconfirmed through this experience that face-to-face discussions play a significant role in identifying problems.
  • The best experience was that I was able to have discussions with local students in English and that we became friends. I realize that this kind of experience depends on the personalities of the students involved, for example whether or not they are outgoing, but we were lucky this time in that we were able to respect each other and build a positive relationship. I think participants gained confidence simply by being able to hold discussions with foreign students in English, and the experience will stimulate them to work even harder on their research after finishing the training.

Environmental and Energy Technology Internship

  • Interns develop problem-solving skills by searching for practical methods to complete the assigned tasks
  • A mixed group of Japanese and international students is dispatched to businesses



2015: 6 companies
2016: 8 companies
2017: 4 companies
2018: 5 companies

Students’ Voices

  • Participating in an internship program made me aware that before graduating, I must acquire the ability to independently think, make plans and carry them out.
  • Through my experiences of writing various documents including product outlines, visit/tour reports, and daily reports, I learned the importance of being aware of the readers, summarizing the information, and writing clearly.
  • I gained an understanding of the actual process from production up to customers obtaining the product, and of the fact that unlike our laboratories, a business cannot continue to exist without generating profit.
  • It was beneficial since I was able to get a good picture of what it is like to work in a business. Being familiar with working in a company as a professional will have a positive effect on my job-hunting activities.
  • I now have a clear image of what it is like to work for a Japanese company. I found out about the types of duties performed by a company researcher (experiments, phone call handling, discussions), and the pressures and opportunities they have (training, reporting, participating in conferences, internal evaluation, etc.)
