Summer Program unites 17 students to discuss Engineering Design for Social Resilience
September 20, 2023
Tokyo Tech's Center for International Education hosted the Engineering Design for Social Resilience Summer Program from July 3 to 28, bringing together 17 participants from the Institute and other educational institutions around the world. This was the first time in four years that the Summer Program was held in person.
As the world faces numerous far-reaching challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic and other public health issues, climate change caused by global warming, and various forms of natural disasters, there are growing expectations for humans and technology to work together to create a more resilient society. This year's Summer Program offered an opportunity to examine future technologies that may provide solutions to these challenges through lectures and lab experiences in the fields of "AI, health, and wellbeing," "disaster prevention and design," and "energy issues," all of which are being actively researched at Tokyo Tech.
