This summer again, we held a summer intensive course “Aviation Technology Innovation” where about 35 students from Bachelor 3rd grade to Doctor 2nd grade of mainly Aeronautics and Astronautics Department learned about the basic and the application of Aerodynamics, Aeroelasticity, Structure and Helicopter Mechanism. The lecture also covers how to integrate technologies into an aircraft and invite lecturers from JAXA, MHI, KHI and FHI. In 2016, special lecture about JAXA D-sent program and visit of lab of super sonic were newly added.
Here is the comments from students;
-It was great that I was able to see the real thing such as wind tunnels, material testing machines, and so on. This class was quite different from ordinary classes. It was more realistic. I recommend this class.
-I got to know an actual situation of aircraft development which we couldn't know in everyday class. Also, it was a good chance to consider my future career.
-At the debating session, the researchers at JAXA gave me very useful advice regarding my future career, and I could have an opportunity to talk about what I think. It helped me think about my future from a new perspective,and I really appreciate it.
