To lead the world in therapeutic instrument development

Koichi Murata
Enrolled in Academic Year 2014

My dream is to develop products and technology that are useful and bring joy to people around the world. After completing this Program, I aspire to work for a company as an engineer so that I can engage in research and development of medical and welfare technology. By participating in this program, I aim to gain a multifaceted viewpoint and acquire broad knowledge. Combining this knowledge with my engineering expertise, I plan to conduct research that creates practical technology and to become active on the global scene.

Thinking about user friendly products

Ryo Wako
Enrolled in Academic Year 2014

Everyone has at least had one experience of a tool that is so fit to the body that it feels like its part of your body. My goal is to develop such kinds of products. My specialty is in sensation and perception, therefore from the perspectives of spatial representation formed from haptics, I aim to investigate the factors behind user friendly tools. I find this Program’s environment very appealing, as both colleagues specializing in building and those specializing in evaluation of the user experience are able to exchange opinions form differing perspectives and actually start projects together.

Learning and accumulating practical experience with a wide range of knowledge on human beings

Satoki Ogiso
Enrolled in Academic Year 2014

In this Program I am learning the knowledge and experience necessary to empower people. My research is on bone conduction of audio waves. This research requires a wide range of knowledge on subjects such as the physical and mental characteristics of the senses, the structure of the cranium, and elastic waves. In our classes we can study models of the human body and actually use MRI and other technologies in our research. In one of my seminars, Empowerment Informatics Project-based Research, we have access to assistance with the costs of a project and are learning practical methods such as how to achieve our goals as a team.

Since I was a child, I have dreamed of becoming an inventor.

Hikaru Takatori
Enrolled in Academic Year 2014

Ever since I was a small child, I have dreamed of becoming an inventor. Creating and sharing things with people makes me happy. Today I am working toward realizing this vision. To make the most of my experience gained through this Program, I would like to be an imaginative engineer in research and development who can see the big picture based on the broad knowledge acquired through interdisciplinary study, propose technical solutions using the frontline ability developed through the practicum, and share my achievements with the world.

Aiming to be a leader who can solve problems from multiple perspectives

Tadayuki Tone
Enrolled in Academic Year 2014

My goal for the future is to be a professional who can propose and realize optimal solutions to problems from a broad range of perspectives, highly knowledgeable on a wide range of fields rather than sticking to a single field alone. For this reason, the Program in Empowerment Informatics truly is the best program for me, since it has made it possible for me to study in one year a wide range of fields including engineering, art, psychology, and medicine. I will further broaden the fields in which I study next year and in later years, and I am confident that I will be able to achieve my goal for the future since I will have the opportunity to learn both frontline ability and presentation ability.

Aiming to develop world-class human assistive technologies

Jun Nishida
Enrolled in Academic Year 2014

I would like to be active internationally as a research and development engineer engaged in manufacturing based on next-generation human informatics, which requires an integrated knowledge and experience related to humankind and their properties. To conduct practical world-class research with a global impact, various issues must be solved, including dispersing human-assistive technology and products around the world, achieving world-class clinical research, and establishing related international and regional standards. To help resolve these issues, I am also interested in setting policy at government ministries and agencies.
