Training programs are offered in order to foster researchers with “broad perspectives” beyond the educational programs of “high-expertise” by cutting-edge researchers in our department.
This course will also be held for new students of SOKENDAI after the entrance ceremony. It addresses the philosophy of SOKENDAI and provides guidelines for living a fulfi lling student life. It will include lectures by the President, deans, and senior researchers, as well as the School Orientation Lecture and special lectures. The course will also help new students receive guidance and build networks through interaction with other students as well as faculty members and academic staff .
Physical Science Student Seminar
This seminar is planned and operated by the students as a subject, and special lectures, group exercises and presentations are held with the aim of deepening mutual understanding and acquiring a broad perspective.
International Education Program
As part of the international science education, which is one of the educational ideals of SOKENDAI, this program offers symposia and seminars for international applicants. As an example, the “SOKENDAI Asian Winter School” offers a series of lectures and training courses for students and young scientists predominantly from Asian countries who are interested in the fusion energy development.
The Short-Stay Study Abroad Program
This program is supported by a grant from the university that enables students to take part in international joint research projects. These projects foster highly specialized world-class researchers who have global perspectives. The program provides students opportunities to study at cutting-edge research institutes abroad for from two to twelve weeks in order to pursue in-depth study with a number of prominent researchers. Approximately 10 proposals in total are accepted each year.
