The “Sozo Kobo” workshop is a facility that provides you with the freedom and opportunity to exercise your ingenuity and express yourself, developing and manufacturing your own original ideas. The unique workshop environment not present at other universities is supported and managed by the school of Engineering and the department of Mechanical Engineering. Currently the following five projects are under-way:
(2nd year, Mechanical Engineering)
Planet-Q is a circle that launches model rockets. I joined in October and launched 2 model rockets with my friends. One of those were completely designed and assembled by us, with the help of Japanese students. It is a great learning experience and you get to interact with friendly japanese students. Currently, Planet-Q is preparing for its biggest project yet. A self-made hybrid engine rocket. I am enjoying learning by doing and hope to continue being a member.
