新板 窮理図解

photoCurrently how many students does your lab have?
      A total of ten – four undergraduate and six graduate students. They are all gentle, positive, and well brought up. Indeed, they are really worth teaching. In the Faculty of Science and Technology, we have just produced our first alumni, but some of them found employment with advertising agencies and other mass media-related companies. This may be an indication that AR will find increasing application as useful media.
      I’d also like to point out that at Keio University researchers are very active in research activities off campus as well. It is often the case that being involved with teachers from other departments at Keio through administration meetings provides me with various stimuli. There are also many opportunities for interactions beyond academic specialties. All in all, Keio offers an ideal environment, for sure.
      But it should be kept in mind that students could hardly learn what they are taught at classes if they remained passive. This is why I’d like my students to take up any hobby related to their interested fields and put it in practice as “their own challenge.” Especially when it comes to the field of informatics, you are able to shape your own ideas readily with only a computer and sufficient enthusiasm. I sincerely hope that students will enjoy a meaningful student life by beginning with their interests.

Just a word from a student
Student : Whenever we students approach Prof. Sugimoto for consultation, he responds to us with very kind advice, putting himself in our shoes. Our lab is always has a friendly atmosphere, so we can communicate very frankly with each other.
