Recently we welcomed eight short-term visiting trainees from our sister universities; three from Cochin University of Science and Technology and five King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang. We held an opening ceremony and orientation, and on June 7th, we also held a welcome party at the international lounge. Students, including Yamagata University students, gave presentations about their countries. We made and ate Thai green curry and Yamagata imoni. It was a good chance to learn about and get to understand each other’s country. The internship students will be here for one to two months.
