Mr Yogesh Koomar Jagessur
I am currently enrolled for a Doctoral Degree in Advanced Mechanical Engineering and Robotics at Ritsumeikan University, researching into strength of heterogeneous materials under multiaxial loading.
Ritsumeikan University is reputable for its metallurgy research, and has a unique blend of support for both English and Japanese speaking students, which makes it very attractive. And obviously, given the rich culture and polite and hard-working attitude of the country, it is an easy choice. After my studies, I am aiming to further research into nano-metallic materials.
Learning Japanese will singularly help out-having some basics would be very useful. Be prepared to meet really polite people and a change in cultural scenery like no other. — Embrace it and watch the magic.
