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. Thepresentation was evaluated by each NU supervisor while the report was evaluated by each supervisor at UM/UCLA. 4 credits (at maximum) will be awarded from Nagoya University depending on their results.

On October 9, the workshop was held for the students and they had presentations on their research projects at UM/UCLA. The presentations were evaluated by each NU advisory professor. Read more
