On July 4th, the total of 25 people from Singapore, including 24 students and one professor, visited Nagoya Institute of Technology (NITech). This visit is a part of a youth exchange program called “JENESYS2.0”* that is implemented by Japan International Cooperation Center (JICE).
The group of Singaporean students belongs to one of the following three universities: National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, and Singapore University of Technology and Design. Their fields of study included Computer Science, New Media, Information Engineering, and Design. The purpose of their visit was to interact with students at the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Engineering and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering at NITech.
On the date of visiting, NITech Vice President Ido welcomed them warmly. Then, the group of Singaporean students attended a lecture on Digital Media Application. This lecture was provided by Associate Professor Takahiro Uchiya at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering of NITech. Then, the Singaporean student experienced “Mei-Chan” with students at Uchiya Lab.
The program at lunch time contained the song performance by the group of Singaporean students and interviews about the feedback of experiencing “Mei-chan.” The program went smoothly and warmly as students from Singapore and Uchiya Lab communicated well. To practice what they had learned, the Singaporean student actually talked with “Mei-chan” located at the main gate and left NITech.
*JENESYS2.0 is a youth exchange program that is intended to create a bridge between Japan and other countries/regions in Asia, Oceania and North America. (cited from JICE website)
