My current job

In the field of computer graphics, we develop and research algorithms that emphasize the visual representation of fluids through joint research with students from other universities and overseas researchers. Some of the research results have been applied to the film industry's digital imaging technology. You are required to know maths and physics, programming, and English. This is a fast-paced field with more and more new technologies and research papers being published, but it is an irreplaceable joy to be able to discover something new on my own.

How I spent my student life

During my time at GEIKO days, I spent a lot of time drawing, playing games, and talking about visual expression with friends who were interested in painting. After graduating, I pursued a different path from my university friends for almost 10 years, but we still keep in touch. My current research still draws on my experiences at the time – the experience of being taught by Dr. Tsuruno, who was my supervisor at the time, as well as the free-spirited atmosphere of GEIKO. I'm really glad I chose to attend GEIKO.

Message for prospective students

The entrance exams were tough, but I think striving for something constitutes an important life experience. At the same time, even if you don't achieve the results you want at the entrance exams, the experience of having worked hard will stay with you for life. Those kinds of experiences will give you the confidence to overcome any difficulties you encounter in future. So, count the entrance exams as a valuable experience in growing stronger. I wish all of you the best of luck.
