Three Steps of Internships
The brain science program requires compulsory internships. This includes an internship during the first half of the doctoral program, and a Doctoral Program On-the job Training session during the second half of the doctoral course. The aim is to provide systematic training for brain information architects with real experience at research institutions and in industry.
Brain Science Internship: Students will gain laboratory experience at brain-science-related institution such as Hamamatsu University School of Medicine.
In order to improve communication with brain-science field researchers, we encourage students to recognize the importance of a wide range of knowledge and theories, as well as to participate in technical collaboration.
Global Summer School: We dispatch students overseas during the summer vacation of the first half of the doctoral program. Students gain experience and acquire discussion skills with an international perspective and in a global environment.
Doctoral Program On-the-Job Training: Students are required to spend six months in industry or at an research institute. Students are assigned to posts where they can conduct practical training and gain experience for studying research trends, applying and developing research achievements, pursuing marketing surveys, and researching and developing brain-science-related mechanics. Students cultivate management skills such as situation analysis and planning abilities. Teaching practice is provided at Technical Colleges for students who want to become teachers.
