Prof. Shigeo Fujii (Dean, GSGES), Prof. Satoshi Hoshino (GSGES), and Assoc. Prof. Shuhei TANAKA (GSGES) visited on Mahidol University in Thailand in order to conclude a student exchange agreement between the graduate school of global environmental studies, Kyoto Univ. and faculty of engineering, Mahidol Univ. on December 4th, 2014.  On the signing ceremony, Dr. Surakit Nathisuwan (Vice President, Mahidol Univ.) had a greeting and explain the aims, then, Prof. Fujii had a greeting including introduction of international exchange and expectation of further student exchange.  Dr. Worawit Israngkul (Dean, Faculty of Engineering, Mahidol Univ.) and Prof. Fujii signed on the student exchange agreement (shown in photo-1).

Before the ceremony, Dr. Songpol Ongwattanankul (Vice Dean, Faculty of Engineering, Mahidol Univ.) introduced a general outline of Mahidol Univ., then Dr. Ranjna Jindal (Program leader, International graduate program, Mahidol Univ.) introduced experiences of student exchange in Mahidol Univ..  Finally, Prof. Fujii introduced a general outline of graduate school of global environmental studies and our vision of double degree course (shown in photo-2).

After the ceremony, we visited on Salaya Central Instrumental Facility in Mahidol Univ..  Some high-performance liquid chromatography mass spectrometers (HPLC-MS/MS), a time-of-flight mass spectrometer (TOF-MS), high pressure gas piping systems were installed in this center.  Then, we visited at the library in order to observe new e-learning system (shown in photo-3).  Students used VTRs of lectures as a review material.  Finally, we visited at the environmental engineering laboratory managed by Dr. Suwanna Kitpati (Assist. Prof., Mahidol Univ.), then students introduced their research activities there.  I wish that many students will interchange through this agreement.
