The reason why I chose the Graduate School of Design

The reason I chose the School of Design is because I was attracted to the field of "ergonomics". In the field of ergonomics, research is conducted with the goal of scientifically pursuing a truly desirable relationship between humans, objects, and the environment, taking into account human characteristics. In particular, I wanted to conduct research related to sleep and light in the field of ergonomics, which is why I chose this school. Furthermore, I chose the Graduate School of Design because I wanted to further develop the research I started during my undergraduate years.

My most memorable class

'Ergonomics Research Project'. This class was held during my undergraduate year. It was an exercise similar to graduation research, in which we planned experiments related to ergonomics in groups, actually gathered experimental participants, collected data, and discussed the results. We learned about ergonomics in previous classes, but conducting actual experiments was more challenging than I expected. However, thanks to this class, my understanding of the experiments I would conduct later expanded significantly.

My student life

I play ice hockey about two or three times a month. I was a member of the Kyushu University Ice Hockey Team during my undergraduate years, but now I play on the alumni team. Having a sport I can practice regularly is a great thing, as it is a source of energy for me every day.

Message to prospective students

Choosing a university or a faculty is often unimaginable and can be very challenging. However, universities are probably providing more information than you think. As you come into contact with such information, you might find something that looks fun or interesting. I hope that your examination will result in what you consider a success.
