Study in USA: 2- and 6-month courses from August 2015

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 workshops which took place at Nagoya University after they came back. The presentation was evaluated by each Nagoya 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.
