The first TAOYAKA Program’s  “TAOYAKA Student Seminar Series (TSSS) ” 2017 was held on July 12, 2017.


The series started in 2016 Fall/Winter semester and we are pleased to announce that we resumed it on July 12, 2017!  This year, TAOYAKA student Ambassadors are in charge of managing the series.

One of the unique features of TAOYAKA program is the students’ diversity in academic and career backgrounds. TAOYAKA Students belong to three academic disciplines – Cultural Creation, Technical Creation, and Social Implementation courses- from seven different graduate schools. In their third year, students from three different courses, will be teamed-up to conduct multidisciplinary research/project to deal with actual problems/issues in a society.

The series provides students with opportunities for exchanging ideas and skills between different disciplines as well as explaining their studies to multidisciplinary audience. For M2 students, specifically, this is very important opportunity to consider their team members for implementing multidisciplinary research/project.

The series usually consists of two seminars by students in two of three courses of the TAOYAKA program. This semester, the seminars take place on  Wednesdays from 12:50 t0 14:20 at the TAOYAKA classroom/Free Space at Daigaku-Kaikan.  Everyone is welcome! Please come and join our TSSS!

The schedule of the 2017 spring semester is as follows. We will have more seminars in coming F/W semester!
