Opinion: 多様性の比率 Diversity Ratio

80対20の法則というものがあるが、偶然にも外部からの進学者、留学生などの多様性を活かせる最適な学生構成の比率も、そのくらいが良いのではないか。There is a thing called the 80-20 rule. Coincidentally, the optimal ratio of student composition for a lab that can take advantage of the diversity of (graduate) students entering from outside or international students should also be about that ratio.

Tantangan global itu selalu kompleks, sehingga penempatan nilai yang berlebihan pada suatu persaingan akan membuat dunia ini menuju ke arah yang tidak tepat. Untuk kebaikan jangka panjang, siapa pemenangnya akan menjadi tidak berarti. グローバルな課題は常に複雑であるため、競争に過度の価値を置くと、世界は間違った方向に導かれます。 長期的な利益のための勝者は無意味になります。

Alumni卒業生News: 機械学習で”摩擦学”アプリ Alumni: A machine learning “Tribology” app.

Note: 開発者の卒論のテーマは植物由来原料を添加した燃焼合成法による二次電池用粉末の合成でした。英国の大学院に進学し、「摩擦」研究者になりました。The subject of the developer’s bachelor thesis was the synthesis of powders for rechargeable batteries by combustion synthesis using plant-based materials. She went to postgraduate school in the UK and became a ‘friction’ researcher.

Opinion: 研究を使った次世代対応型教育へ (The role of research on next generation learning)

対VUCAに適応力の高い人材を養成するには、リスクを意識しながら失敗を経験させ、失敗から学ぶプロセスを反復練習できる環境づくりが必要です。In order to develop highly adaptable human resources to the VUCA, it is necessary to create an environment in which people can experience failures while being aware of risks and repeatedly practice the process of learning from failures.

“Old” and “new” students

After three years with us, Y. Hogaki and S. Azuhata, two master-course graduates entered the industries (Hitachi Chemical 日立化成, and Daikin Industries ダイキン工業) and other two fellows (without master-thesis), Y. Asanuma and N. Yoshida, continued to the doctoral course, still with our research group. 2名が博士課程進学 >> Current Members. >> Alumni.

Interview: 化学物理工学科について About the new department.

In my research group, a student and I design the thesis research theme that student want to do, together. This “design process” may take several months, but I think the students have the power they need in an era where problem setting is more important than problem solving. 研究室では、学生がやりたい卒論研究テーマについて学生と一緒に設計していきます。この「設計」が数カ月かかる作業になったりしますが、問題解決能力より課題設定能力が大事と言われる時代において求められる力を身に着けていると思います。

卒業生は今どこに?Where are our graduates now? (Lenggoro Lab)

In April 2018: Six students (D/M/B) graduated, after year(s) worked with us. Here is the updated data of our lab’s 40+ graduates, 11 years after the lab started. Because “diversity matter” is our lab’s keyword, the graduates’ positions also have diversity. Only one company (Toray Industries) has two graduates. Four graduates changed the job places….
