Engineering faculty students participated in international exchange camp at Sichuan University, China.
Students from Faculty of Engineering participated in “University Immersion Program (UIP) 2018” held at Sichuan University in China. The UIP provides various activities for hundreds of students from over 30 countries, aiming at cultivating their global perspective. The “Sparks & Sprout”, which is a camp program organized by College of Computer Science at Sichuan University, was held during July 8th to July 16th. 20 students from University of Yamanashi (19 students from Department of Computer Science and Technologies and 1 student from Department of Mechatronics) joined the camp program.
The camp program involves various activities such as intensive course lectured by the leading-edge researcher in computer science, tour to a software-developing company, presentation of software development projects, collaborative work by Japanese and Chinese students, and also experiences to learn Chinese culture and history.
It is a part of our mid-term plan to provide the students the opportunities to work with international researchers and students by developing global partnership. Participating in this camp have strengthened the partnership with Sichuan University and provided the students valuable experiences of cultural exchange and international team work.
