ＲＪＥ３プログラム 基礎科目履修を終えて(Report for the RJE3 Program Basic Subjects)
1st year student of master’s degree program
Division of Engineering and Policy for Sustainable Environment,
Graduate School of Engineering, Hokkaido University
In this project, I could go through a lot of enjoyable and valuable experiences. I took classes from professors in Hokkaido University and in other Russian universities who specialize in various kinds of academic fields. I took more than four lectures every day. Therefore, we had to study 5 or 6 hours per day.
To be honest, it was not easy for me since all lectures were in English. However, I could acquire diverse knowledge which I would never have gotten if I hadn’t participated in this project. Besides, I had a group discussion in the last part of lecture every day. Each group had 6 students from each universities. So, this group discussion was a good chance to make new friends.
After I finished all lectures in this project, I had a free day. In this free day, I organized the field trip to Otaru city. I visited several historical buildings and beautiful Otaru canal in the morning with the participants in the RJE3 program. Then, I went to a lot of souvenir shops in the afternoon. Many participants in this trip looked enjoying this trip very much. So I was really glad. This trip contributed to make new friendship with many Russian students. Furthermore, the field trip itself was very fun.
Although this project was only a week, it was very fun and meaningful for me. I’d like to appreciate everyone who related to this project and my dear Russian friends.
