We would like to introduce our international exchange activities.
- International Agricultural Program
The International Agricultural Program is an education and research program on the acquisition of advanced expertise and skills that can contribute to the development
of tropical and subtropical agriculture and forestry based in the Asia-Pacific region, food, agriculture, environment and resources issues. It aims to cultivate the ability
to lead new agricultural science from an international perspective. In addition to classes on tropical and subtropical agriculture in our university, we also work with universities such
as Khon Kaen University (Thailand), Bogor Agricultural University (Indonesia), University of Ruhuna (Sri Lanka), Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University (Bangladesh).
The summer school will be held during the summer vacation, and graduate students of the master's program will be dispatched to the countries where the agreement base university is located.
A summer school for 2017 was held in September and a total of eight students were dispatched to Khon Kaen University, Bogor Agricultural University, University of Ruhuna for about 20 days.
Students participated in fieldwork, internship, tours, exchanges with local students through coordination of faculty members of agreement base universities and learned a lot.
