Faculty of Engineering
Department of Mechanical Systems Engineering
As a foreign student from Malaysia, the University of Yamanashi is the ideal place for me to expand my technical knowledge and skills. When I first came here in 2006, my initial impression was that the university, located near the center of Kofu, had a very beautiful campus with great facilities. Foreign students are well taken care of by very friendly and helpful staff in the foreign students' office. Furthermore, the university provides accommodations for students during the first year of studies. In terms of campus life, small classes of around 50 students make it easier for lecturers to pay attention to us at certain times, plus the friendly classmates and lecturers make my learning experience in Japan a very good one. Whenever you need help, there is always someone there to lend a hand. As we all know, Japan's technology is world-class, and the University of Yamanashi Faculty of Engineering can provide that world-class technical education with many highly experienced and well-respected professors as teaching staff who can speak English well, if needed. The small-sized classes ensure that nobody is left behind, especially foreign students like me. Overall, the great learning environment that this university promotes makes my experience here in Japan very memorable.
