Q1 Why did you choose to come the Applied Chemistry Course, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Kyushu University?

It has a great balance between Academic Excellency and exciting Campus Life. Along with world-renowned Research Centers and Institutes, one can find circles and clubs for all kind of hobbies and activities. So, as International Student one can make great friends while learning Advanced Science and Technology from leading experts in the field.

Q2 What do you study in your subject?

Our research group in the Institute for Materials Chemistry and Engineering specializes in Nanobio and Quantum Chemistry, helping to predict both the nature and function of new chemical compounds and materials. I've been doing research in a novel ruthenium catalyst important for the design of more environmentally friendly, more sustainable products and industrial processes. I hope to learn a lot from my studies in Japan and go back to my country to become a scientific leader, either in industry or academia. Hopefully, both.

Q3 How do you like Japan, Kyushu or Fukuoka?

I like very much Fukuoka, and it's been a wonderful experience to study in Japan for me. I had no only the chance to learn an exciting new field in one of the best 150 universities in the world, but I also learned the culture, language and manners of a very interesting country.
Being far away from your family, long-time friends and culture is not easy and there are times when one feels like can't take it anymore, but hobbies and good friends can help a lot through those difficult times.

Q4 Please advise something to younger students who come to Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Kyushu University.

I would advice to make the most of your studies in Japan, both academically and personally. Four years may seem a long time, but they are not. In the last two years of my studies I'd been so busy, I'm longing for my first and second years in university when I had time to make new friends and practice my hobbies. Try to balance your academic and personal life and please learn that there's enough time for everything if you use well your time.

Q1 Why did you choose to come the Department of Materials Process Engineering, Graduate school of Engineering, Kyushu University?

During the several years' work in materials technology company,I found many deficiencies of myself. So I would like to back to school for the further education, then found out Kyushu University that is very comprehensive and famous in the materials technology. So I chose it and now I think it's my best choice.

Q2 What do you study in your major?

Physical chemistry of high temperature melts and related pyro-processing for functional glasses ceramics. In near future, I hope that I can continue with my studies in the field of refractory materials.

Q3 How do you like Japan, Kyushu or Fukuoka?

Japan is a beautiful country, has the unique nature and the humanities landscape, moreover the public security is very good. Fukuoka is outstanding, I thought, and suitable one of cities which the humanity lives. What impressed me the most is that if you want to do something, you can do it very convenience. Any kind off matters which you may meet, you can get the help from some kind of public institution's service and so on. Even if your Japanese is not very good, you may solve your problem by yourself.

Q4 Please advise something to younger students who come to Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Kyushu University.

Faculty of Engineering of Kyushu University, teacher resources is extremely abundant, the research scope is broad, and the specialized classification is extremely subdivided. If you hope study at Kyushu University, it would be very important to choose your own research direction or topic beforehand. Then you would look for a professor who is active in research arena that you interested in, and contact whether you could join the research group. It would be miserable that, after join the research group, you have found there's no topic you would like to study, so chose carefully. Moreover, if you have difficulty in daily life, you can also talk about it with your professor, mostly your professor can give you help.
