Research Internship
The students had research internship at laboratories of University of Michigan and UCLA. They worked on the specific research projects under their supervisors at each university.
They wrote a research report and gave the final presentation at the workshop which took place at Nagoya University after they came back. The presentation was evaluated by each NU advisor while the report was evaluated by each supervisor at UM/UCLA. 4 credits (at maximum) were awarded from Nagoya University depending on their results.

Workshops (8/6 for UM, 9/2 for UCLA)
Workshops for the short-term students were held on September 15 and 17at UCLA and UM. They gave presentations on their research projects and were evaluated by their advisors at UCLA and UM.
Medium-term students had the workshop on February 19 at Nagoya University. Their presentations were evaluated by advisors at NU. Long-term students gave the presentations at their laboratory individually after their came back to Nagoya.
