The orientation for the first students of “System-inspired Leaders in Material Science” program was held. (April 1, 2014)
On April 1, 2014, the orientation for the Graduate Course for System-inspired Leaders in Material Science (SiMS), a program for leading graduate schools, was held for the students of the inaugural class at Science Hall on the Nakamozu Campus of Osaka Prefecture University. At the opening of the orientation, Hiroshi Tsuji, Vice President of Osaka Prefecture University and SiMS Program Director, called out the names of the 21 students enrolled in the program, and each student strongly expressed his/her resolve.
The orientation was followed by the pre-exercise of “Strategic System Thinking Training,” an event that required students to tackle a difficult challenge in a group.
After the event, explanations were provided regarding the procedure for signing up for a class and the mentoring system, and an information exchange session was held, in which students received a word of encouragement from guests from the private-sector, mentors and the representative of the Interdisciplinary Study Group and renewed their resolves.
The Graduate Course for System-inspired Leaders in Material Science has started today. Its activities will be reported on this website.
