The event started with the opening remarks by the President, Heads from each graduate course greeted the gathering, followed by Program Coordinator Kimoto giving an overview of the WISE program.
Next, there were lectures with diverse content from representatives of participating companies on “Expectations for the WISE program and how a Ph.D. should be”. The participants were able to cultivate a better mutual understanding that various similarities are present between the talent sought by each of the future companies and the talent nurtured with the WISE program.
A commemorative photo session was held for all participants, including companies, professors and prospective students.
At the poster session, students, professors, and companies were able to present and exchange ideas. It was a lively presentation that promoted expectations of ambitious students.
The panel discussion by the participating companies and professors, was an excellent opportunity to discuss and listen to individual opinions on the theme, “What is an attractive and competent WISE program?”. Many ideas were exchanged, such as all the current students should think ten years ahead and carry out “exciting research”, or “omoroi (interesting) research” with an expression that is unique to the Kansai region, and at the same time, expectations for future research activities and their outcome were also put forward.
At the end of the discussion session, Director Kitano spoke about the prospects of the WISE program. There were 195 participants, including those who participated without applying beforehand. Details are given below.
