Japanese Class
The students had 10 Japanese lessons during the summer program. They learnt the basic grammar and essential conversational expressions. Read more

Seminar by Prof. Yang (UCLA)
Prof. Jenn-Ming Yang of UCLA visited Nagoya University and gave a lecture titled ‘In-Situ Nano-Mechanical Testing and Characterization of Metals and Ceramics E Following the lecture, the JUACEP students from/to UCLA had round-table discussion with the professor and talked about student life at UCLA.

Handcraft Exercise
By collaboration with the Creation Plaza of Graduate School of Engineering, the students had practical training of the internal combustion engine.
  • -Lecture of the internal combustion engine
  • -Disassembling the engine
  • -Assembling the engine
  • -Performance test

Field Trip
On June 24, we visited TOYOTA Tsutsumi Plant and JR SCMAGLEV and Railway Park. At TOYOTA plant, we watched ‘assembly Eand  Eelding Eshops. Also, we looked around SCMAGLEV and Railway Park and experienced the speed of N700 Shinkansen and superconducting Maglev. Read more

Culture Experience
Following the field trip, we went to Gifu prefecture to explore the Japanese traditional culture. We visited Gifu Park, Mt. Kinka and Gifu Castle. After that, we watched Ukai (cormorant fishing) on the Nagara River.

On August 8 and 22, workshops were held for both UM and UCLA students and they had presentations on their research themes at Nagoya University. The presentations were evaluated by each advisory professor. The students get credits (2 or 3 credits depending on the course period) from Nagoya University as a result of the presentation and research report. The credits are transferred to ME590 at University of Michigan under the agreement. Read more
