Q6-1. How about the number of admitted students and affiliated Graduate Schools?
Q6-2. Details of LIMS lecture courses: when and how can I browse and get them?
Q6-3. Can I continue the LIMS program if I were selected as a research fellowship for young scientists of Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS)
Q6-4. Could proceeding to doctoral (PhD) course be disadvantageous when it comes to finding employment?
Q6-5. If I were to seek a job in industry, what kind of companies will I be able to apply to?
A6-5. Regarding “what kind of companies will I be able to apply to”, the program will consider and design depending on the interest and aspiration of each individual student. First, medical engineering special lectures I, II; medical device industry; automotive industry; housing industry; and information and communication industry lectures will be given from lecturers outside the university. The interaction suitability between the student side and the industry side will be considered during lectures. Then, based on the students’ wishes, corporate internships will be planned in agreement with the industry’s interests in human resources and ability to offer a research environment. Although applying for or getting a job from a company which also provides lecturers to the program or internships for students, is not guaranteed, a number of cooperating companies have expressed their high expectations of graduates of such a course and want to give their cooperation in training these human resources.
Under bad economic conditions, it is difficult to foster human resources for the long-term outlook in a company. However, the problems of an aging society and a healthy-longevity society will inevitably become future important issues for Japan as well as many other countries, and universities are expected to train human resources that can respond to the problems faced. Regardless of the above-mentioned industries, all of the companies related to the construction of a healthy-longevity society, are “possible” working places for students of this program. We highly expect the students themselves will develop a new road to employment.
