Field Practice 2022
Field practice is a subject required to complete the Graduate School of Excellence in Advanced Optical and Electronic Device Creation.
If you are planning field practice this year, please follow the procedure below.
The registration procedure differs depending on the graduate school to which you belong, so please refer to the relevant items. As a general rule, the target is students who have completed the doctoral program at an outstanding graduate school.The total implementation period is 90 hours (equivalent to 2 credits) or more. This number of hours can include related training hours at Kyoto University.
From 2021, expenses related to field practice implementation will be borne by the laboratory.
[Special cases in 2022]
In order to prevent infection with the new coronavirus, it may be difficult to visit universities and research institutes in Japan and overseas to implement field practices. Therefore, this year, it will be possible to consider it as field practice implementation by conducting practical training etc. online such as Zoom or by e-mail.
If you would like to implement field practices online or by e-mail, please consult with your academic advisor before proceeding. Also, if you are a student of the Graduate School of Engineering, please consult with the A Cluster Academic Affairs Section. When implementing online, etc., please replace “dispatch” such as “dispatch destination” and “dispatch period” in the field practice implementation plan with “implementation” as appropriate. We are considering measures for the next fiscal year and beyond.
[For Graduate School of Engineering students]
The course of the research internship will be read as the course of field practice, so please take the procedure of the research internship.
(1) Obtain the forms of “Research Internship Implementation Plan and Implementation Confirmation” (Engineering) and “Dispatch Expense Usage Plan” from the A Cluster Academic Affairs Section, or download from the following.
(2) After fully consulting with your academic advisor, fill in the necessary items in places other than the implementation confirmation column of the “Research internship implementation plan and implementation confirmation”, and perform the research internship (field practice) together with the “dispatch expense usage plan”. ) Please submit it to your academic advisor at least one and a half months before the implementation. Please note that if the submission is delayed, it may not be possible to carry out the schedule on schedule.
(3) If the submitted content is approved, your academic advisor will contact you to that effect, so please carry out a research internship (field practice).
(4)As soon as the research internship (field practice) is completed, please fill in the required items in the implementation result column of the “Research internship implementation plan and implementation confirmation” and submit it to your academic advisor.
[Graduate School of Science Students / Graduate School of Informatics Students]
(1) Please download the “Field Practice Implementation Plan and Implementation Confirmation” (physical and information) and “Dispatch Expense Usage Plan” from the following.
(2) After fully consulting with your academic advisor, fill in the necessary items in places other than the implementation confirmation column of the “Field Practice Implementation Plan and Implementation Confirmation Form”, and implement the field practice together with the “Dispatch Expense Usage Plan”. Please submit it to your academic advisor at least one and a half months in advance. Please note that if the submission is delayed, it may not be possible to carry out the schedule on schedule.
