Entered a graduate school after experiencing the world of industry Fully utilizing the investigation and research techniques acquired at graduate school After completing the undergraduate course. the name was changed to the Graduate School of Design. During my undergraduate studies. courses and schools when I have questions about chemistry and engineering during the course of my research. I conduct research on the ecology of the plankton. I currently conduct research on the relationship between the ocean and nature from the perspective of chemistry. The faculty is passionate. I was in fact.. etc. which was led by Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology. I can also talk to the faculty in other research laboratories. In addition to my own research. and student support systems. Tokai University . Laser technology is a field with great potential for growth. At that time. I could fully devote my energy to my research at the Asahikawa Campus thanks to its many strengths: the high-quality facilities including craft centers. Yoko Kishi (from Tochigi prefecture) Graduate School of Marine & Technology. I decided to enter graduate school to master the skills that I would need to realize my dream. majoring in Physics. I plan to find a post at a private company that allows me to draw upon my research. Because I had already been in industry. this experience played a significant role in leading me to my current research on lasers. In hindsight. After completing the doctoral program. I want to work at a private company where I can make good use of my observation techniques and contribute to society by working in the field of environmental conservation. During the voyage from Sekinehama in Aomori to San Diego. emerged. I was able to extend my knowledge to other areas through collaborative research with professors. designing industrial par ts. and very attentive to students’ needs. One strength of Tokai University’s graduate school is its ideal research environment that is realized through an ample budget and sophisticated facilities. Tomomi Wada (from Hokkaido) 2003 alumni of the Integrated Design Studies at the Graduate School of Art. such as scholarships. I was given the chance to participate in a research voyage across the Pacific. There are many t ypes of equipment and facilities that students from other courses can use. Gradually my dream of creating user-friendly products based on clear images of the environment in which they would be used. many professors and staff members who are very attentive to the students’ requests and needs. my research goals in graduate school were very clear. While preparing for a job interviews before graduating. Marine Science Course Second year of the master’s program A campus where many graduate schools converge This interdisciplinary environment facilitates a deeper level of research Takashi Yasuda (from Kanagawa prefecture) The Graduate School of Science and Technology. there are too many to fully utilize each facility. As the increase in carbon dioxide emissions that a cco m pa ny gl o ba l wa r m i ng have b eco m e ma j o r problems. handles for machinery. Ltd *In 2008. I became interested in optical technology and did a double major in Optical Engineering (now: Optical and Imaging Science and Technology) at the Department of Engineering. I currently conduct research on lasers. I decided to enter graduate school to gain a more advanced level of expertise before beginning my career. California. I work at a car manufacturer to improve the aesthetic quality of vehicles (grappling with the question. Specifically. fair. Instead of using what I have researched and learned for personal gain. I hope to make good use of my experience at graduate school to continue to create attractive cars for customers. In fact. As I continued to study oceanography during my undergraduate years. what is an attractive vehicle from the customers’ point of view?). I worked as a designer at a manufacturer of industrial metal parts (hinges. I watched the movie Free Willy and was enthralled by the free movement of the Orca. students are able to acquire practical knowledge that has relevance in industry and simultaneously engage in socially meaningful research. Because many of them have experience in industry. people have started paying more attention to the roles played by the ocean and plankton as absorbers of carbon dioxide. I was very impressed with the attitude of the staff who was regularly engaged in research.28 TOK AI UNIVERSITY Graduate School The Voices of Current Students and Alumni Marine phytoplankton teach us about global environmental changes When I was in elementary school. I felt limited because even though I wanted to have a clear image of the environment in which customers utilized the products that I designed. Hokkaido Tokai University* Currently working at Nissan Motor Co. In 2005. I was able to envision my future more clearly. my interest shifted from large animals to the environment and plankton that support these animals. Science and Technology Course First year of the doctoral program I graduated from the Department of Science at Tokai University. Currently. Through my conversations with them. although many of them do not know that these are available. Another strength of Tokai University’s graduate school is that a variety of graduate schools coexist on one campus.). This is when I started to develop an interest in the ocean. I hope to return all that I have gained to society by contributing to the development of science and technology in Japan.
