2023年11月15日（水）、マラ工科大学 Dr. Shamimi 先生が宇部高専を表敬訪問し、金寺校長・畑村留学交流室長・江原教授・三谷教授 と懇談しました。
Having an opportunity to visit four students from the Bachelor of Information Systems (Honour) Intelligent Systems Engineering, College of Computing, Informatics and Mathematics, MARA University of Technology (UiTM) who undergo the Short-term International Exchange Students programme at the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Ube College on 15 November 2023 was an enlightening experience for me. The vibrant atmosphere teeming with cultural diversity and academic fervour was noticeable from the moment I stepped onto the campus. The collaborative learning environment, facilities and resources provided by NIT, coupled with guidance and supervision from proficient educators (Prof. Mitani and Prof. Ehara), nurtured the student’s academic growth and personal development. The students displayed their dedication, enthusiasm, adaptability and eagerness to learn which became the evidence that the programme not only enriched their academic knowledge but also fostered a deep appreciation for different perspectives and cultures.
I am also incredibly honoured to have the opportunity to meet with the remarkable top management of NIT, Dr. Noboru Kanedera (President of NIT) and Dr. Manabu Hatamura (Head of International Exchange Office). Their enthusiasm in supporting the programme was truly inspiring. I strongly believe in the potential for this programme to evolve beyond the student exchanges. In my opinion, the programme can also encompass support for educators and foster expertise exchange between NIT and UiTM. Expanding its scope to include students, educators and experts will undoubtedly enhance its impact and contribute to a richer exchange of knowledge and experiences among all participants. I believe that this program will grow into a comprehensive platform for holistic academic and professional development.
