The session started out with a greeting message from Dean of the Faculty of Technology Mangement, Takashi Natori (picture at left) and Vice Dean, Kota Kodama (picture at right).
They gave a brief introduction of Graduate School of Technology Management and ways to maximize research life here by talking about some of the researcher’s challenges throughout the PhD process.

Moreover, the seniors of our program also joined the session to support a new student and shared their exeriences and knowledge as PhD candidates.
