Tokyo Tech Academy for Convergence of Materials and Informatics (TAC-MI) has welcomed ten new enrolled students. It was held for the new students on September 30, 2021. An orientation was carried out online by Zoom to prevent from novel coronavirus infections. Six second-year master’s students and three first-year master’s student who enrolled TAC-MI this fall and their academic supervisors participated in this orientation.
At the beginning, TAC-MI Director Yamaguchi, TAC-MI program sub-coordinators and TAC-MI faculty members gave a welcoming speech. And, 9 new students introduced themselves and talked about their future aspirations. TAC-MI Director Yamaguchi then presented new students with registration certificates.
Next, TAC-MI Director Yamaguchi gave an overview of TAC-MI program. And then, the chair of each TAC-MI program committee gave detailed explanation of the curriculum, financial support and events in TAC-MI.
After the orientation, a student exchange party was held by the second-year doctoral students, where they got to know the new enrolled students. The second-year doctoral students talked about the schedule of TAC-MI and the good and bad things about joining TAC-MI.
We hope that students will become world leaders as advanced “knowledge professionals” in the fields of materials and informatics through the experience of solving various problems with students from different research fields and learning various ways of thinking.
