An Eye-Opening Study Trip to Osaka, Japan
Students from the Diploma in Aerospace Engineering discovered the rich heritage and culture of Japan during their 6-Day-5-Night visit to Osaka in 2019.
Besides exploring the historical monuments of ancient Kyoto, a UNESCO World Heritage site, our students also toured the modern cities of Osaka and Nagoya and learnt more about the unique Japanese traditions and business culture. They also visited universities, the Unagi Pie Factory, the Suzuki museum, the Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JSDF) airbase, and the Hamamatsu Air Park.
The highlight of the trip was the Structural Design Workshop held at the Osaka Prefecture University College of Technology, where our students partnered their Japanese counterparts to gain a deeper understanding of the various concepts behind traditional Japanese architecture.
