建築工学分野に学ぶ先端的日本の科学技術と国際交流

芝浦工業大学からの報告

 芝浦工業大学では、さくサイエンスプラン支援のもと、2017年10月24日(火)から10月31日(火)の間、中国の武漢理工大学にて建築を学ぶ学生10名及びInternational office所属の職員1名の計11名を招へいしました。このプログラムは、研究室見学および講義をはじめ、キャンパスツアー、科学技術施設見学、本学学生との交流を伴った都内見学、そして成果発表会により構成されています。

【文化体験】

 文化体験として、浴衣ワークショップを開催しました。浴衣を着るのは初めての経験だったようで、悪戦苦闘しながらも、浴衣を着ることができ、招へい者全員大変気に入った様子でした。なかには、妹の誕生日に浴衣をプレゼントするとうれしそうに話す招へい者もいました。

 The international staff took us to visit the school, and she gave us an experience to dress up the traditional clothe, yukata. I have to say that it was an excellent Yukata workshop, I really like it, maybe I could buy one to my little sister as a birthday present since her birthday is coming and she is so interested in Japanese culture. After that we took a photo together, you can see all of us got big smiles on our red faces.

【研究室訪問】

 システム理工学部環境システム学科の全3研究室の訪問を実施しました。同学科教員による講義を受けたのち、意見交換を行いました。1日かけて行った研究室訪問は、招へい者たちの専攻分野に重なる点が多かったようで、彼らの知識を深めることができました。

 The first professor's research direction was on the protection of ancient buildings. The second professor discussed the energy conservation with us, The method she put forward to attract people going from indoors to the outdoors was very interesting. Among the three labs we visited, the last laboratory was the most impressive one for me. His research was about public space and place making which meant that they focus on people's feeling, people's movement, and people’s will. His people-oriented idea about street and architecture was inspiring, which could trigger my profound thinking about my own major and research. He was good at delivering his idea and thought in an attractive way, and he also tended to help us to create our own idea and thought. I think he was absolutely a great mentor.

【長屋体験】

 月島へ赴き、日本ならではの建築様式である長屋を見学しました。伝統を生かしつつ現代に調和する形で日々変化を遂げている長屋を間近で見ることができ、招へい者一同感動していました。また、路地裏を散策し、日本独自の文化を体験することができました。

(招へい者の感想抜粋)

 We visited Tsukishima-Nagaya-School and met up with a professor in his traditional house. During our talk, we came to know about Japanese traditional buildings and Japanese lifestyle more. Then with the guide, we did walking tour in Tsukishima. I found that Tsukishima was a kind of special area established to protect ancient houses and preserve the initial layout of street, which provided us a good chance to glance ancient Japan. Reusing the buildings made them alive again.

【最終発表、フェアエルパーティー】

 最終発表では、プログラムのフィードバック、日本建築、中国と日本の文化の違いといった3つのテーマに沿って、各グループが最終発表を行いました。その後、修了証授与を行い、フェアウェルパーティーを開催しました。パーティーでは本学学生と最後の交流を深めることができ、招へい者のうちの1人はアニメが大好きな本学学生とともにそれぞれお気に入りのキャラクターについて熱く語り合っており、とても印象的でした。

 This is our last visit in this trip to the campus of the university of Shibaura Institute of Technology, but at this moment and my mood have been completely different with seven days to come to the strange tension, it’s more of kind and moved. We did our final presentation to the international students. The impression of architecture of Tokyo and street was the topic of our group , mainly explained what we have seen this several days for Japanese style of architecture, and the other two groups of students, presented respectively about the cultural differences between China and Japan and campus. After the closing ceremony, we attend the party. During farewell party, I taled with SIT students, and I found that I read the same anime named Conan. What’s more, we even have the same favorite character. What a coincidence!With the conversation going on, we found that we have more common topic. It is really lucky for me to meet a friend with the same hobby in different country far away from my hometown.

<プログラム全体を通しての感想>

 オリエンテーション初日、招へい者全員はとても緊張している様子でしたが、プログラム期間中の間、本学学生との交流を深め、様々な場所を散策し、文化の違いを経験することで、短い期間ではありましたが、大変有意義な8日間となりました。

(招へい者の感想抜粋)

 I have stayed in Tokyo for 8 days, which is really fantastic. In summary, Tokyo is a city that “clean, colorful, and regular”. The air, street and everything look clean. Moreover, the building in Tokyo is not very high just less than eight floors and each building has its own features. Eight-day was not enough to learn a country or a city well, but when we were walking on streets or having dinner in restaurants, we felt actually lived like a local person. It was very interesting for me to take Tokyo subway and watch people around me and observe details in Japanese daily life, through which I could experience Japanese culture. I am not a very talkative person, even a little shy. Thus, at the beginning, I just listened for the most time, but gradually I started to talk more and dare to speak English with strangers. I think I’ve developed myself in various aspects in these several days. It must be a good memory for me. I will leave for China and say goodbye to Tokyo. It is a nice place for living and studying. If I have opportunity, I will come to Japan again.
Thank you very much for everything!

<総括>

 昨年度に引き続き、さくらサイエンスプランに採択されたことで、本プログラムを通し、さらに武漢理工大学との交流を深めることができました。今後もさくらサイエンスプランを通じて、青少年の育成に力を入れ、中国を始め、各国様々な大学と国際交流を活発化させていく予定です。
