Korean trainees visited UEC

On October 1st, a group of nineteen Korean trainees visited UEC under “JENESYS Programme” formulated by Japanese Government. The seventeen college students majoring in science were selected from among Korean universities, and invited to Japan for 10 days led by two Korean professors to see Japanese universities and landmarks for the purpose of mutual understanding between the two countries.

After a briefing session about UEC, the group took a campus tour which featured Ming Lab (Dept of Mechanical Engineering and Intelligent Systems), the library, a freshman class on IT, and UEC Communication Museum. Then, they attended   a luncheon party and moved on to a student exchange meeting both held by CIPE (Center for International Programs and Exchange).

In the luncheon at Harmonia many UEC volunteer students joined the party, sharing a pleasant time of chatting and laughter. One Korean student delivered a gratitude speech in fluent Japanese on behalf of the group. In the student exchange meeting at Communication Park Building, both Korean and UEC students enjoyed great discussions in small groups on familiar topics such as their daily lives and impressions of each country.

Not a few UEC participants mentioned afterwards, “We are from two different countries and cultures, but what we think and do in everyday life is quite similar to one another.” Thanks to the guests, it must have been a precious experience for not only them but also UEC students to take part in international exchange and awareness.

We would like to express our deepest appreciation for all those who gladly cooperated in making this event a great success.
