Student Voice

(Enrolled in 2020, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering)
Japan has always been the pioneer in developing efficient mechanical systems. The aeronautics industry here is growing rapidly, which creates excellent opportunities for an aviation enthusiast like me. So far, my experience at Kyushu University has been great. The bachelor course has a well-organized curriculum that encompasses all the necessary advanced theoretical courses to help me understand the world of engineering better. I also got to become familiar with many of the excellent research laboratories that Kyushu University has during my first year and that will certainly help me plan better for my future years. I believe my undergraduate education at Kyushu University has been extremely helpful for me to equip myself with engineering skills and expertise. Kyushu University offers the opportunity to do extensive lab research in the 4th year and I am very much looking forward to that!

(Enrolled in 2017, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering)
When searching for universities, I was very much attracted to Kyushu University because I knew Japan was significantly advanced in the fields of mechanical engineering. Kyushu University was the global leader in hydrogen energy research, and I was very passionate about working with renewable energy. I knew it would be a priceless experience to attend here for my undergraduate degree as I would be exposed to the frontier of research. My experience as a Kyushu university student has been truly wonderful. I am able to benefit from being taught by very accomplished professors in various fields.
