Hello everyone!

     My name is Vamoua YACHONGKA and I am from Laos, a tiny landlocked country in southeast Asia. I came to Japan in April 2009 as a Japanese government-sponsored student and now it is my 9th year living and studying in Japan. In my first year, I was attending an intensive Japanese course at Tokyo Japanese language center and then I went to study at National Institute of Technology, Toyota College for three years. After graduating from Toyota College, I was highly eager to continue studying at the university level and finally I chose The University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo (UEC Tokyo). Now I am a second year Ph.D. student in computer and network engineering at UEC Tokyo and working under Associate Professor Hideki Yagi. My research interests include information-theoretic security, coding theory and so on. If you would like to know more details about my research, please visit my personal website.

     Of course, there are various options but why UEC Tokyo? The reason is simple. I have a strong ambition to improve the internet speed in my home country to be as fast as Japan. During my final year in college, I consulted my professors and I found out that UEC Tokyo would be the best choice for me to achieve this dream since UEC Tokyo specializes in telecommunications. Therefore, I soon took the UEC Tokyo transfer examination, luckily passed it, then came to further my studies here without hesitation.

     This is my 6th year in a row attending UCE Tokyo. Here, I can learn new things--both theoretical and applied knowledge--under highly admired researchers. I also have access to state-of-the-art devices to help conduct my research. The university’s library is quite spacious and also equipped with modern tools for students to learn. In addition, UEC Tokyo is nominated as one of the institutions to receive support from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) as part of The Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities. Not many universities in Japan can receive this fund.

     Besides studying and doing research, I feel UEC Tokyo is a place where students can be studious and partake in extracurricular activities together. For example, there is a club called ICES which stands for International Cultural Exchange Society. A lot of international students from around the world are joining the club. We have several events to enjoy like climbing mount Fuji, going to see fireworks, and many more. These are great opportunities to learn about new cultures and make new friends from different countries. For experiences outside of school, there are other interesting programs like visiting a Japanese secondary school or doing a homestay that are available for international students.

     Last but not least, one more thing I like a lot about UEC Tokyo is the staffs who are working here are truly generous and supportive. They treat international students like a family member of their own. When you have difficulty finding accommodation or scholarship opportunities, they always provide precise and helpful advice. This makes my student life here easier and I can focus on conducting my research.

     I am confident to say that choosing to come to UEC Tokyo was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Here, I feel that students are not only learning cutting-edge technologies, but also broadening their world views. So if you are interested in studying in Japan, choose to come UEC Tokyo. We can’t wait to have you to explore new and exciting world together.
