Shuto KANEKO (Japan)

Laboratory on Engineering for Sustainable Sanitation: MSc. graduate March 2016

thmb ShutoI’ve been motivated to become an engineer who can work internationally, as well as in Japan. I applied for e3, considering it is very important for my future career to learn my major in English and polish my communication skill in English.

Now I can say my English skills have improved a lot through the experience in e3. In our laboratory seminars, which take place every 2-3 weeks, all the presentations and discussions were done in English. Discussions with internationally experienced professors and many international students gave me a great opportunity for training. I also worked as one of the Student Officers (SO) to plan and run events for e3 community. Many group works and discussions with other international students were practical and enjoyable. Although I had a lot of difficulty at the beginning, gradually I became more confident thanks to all of the daily experiences.

Md. Kamrul HASAN (Bangladesh)

Laboratory of Micro-energy systems : MSc graduate, September 2014


It was never possible for me coming Hokkaido University without the help of e3 and my supervisor who is like a Father to me. It took only few minutes to get back email replies from e3 before coming Hokudai, and after coming here e3 door is always open for the solution of any problem.

It was great two years of my life to experience many new things, to explore life, people, and more. I would like to thank all the people related to my life for my graduation!

My experiences in Japan are awesome, but for me e3 is like a small world. I am going to miss e3, Sapporo, and friends a lot. Wish you all the best e3 family, and hope we e3 community will remain connected wherever we are!

Reyna DESCALLAR (Philippines)

Laboratory of Ecoprocessing : MSc graduate, September 2011

thumbreyna-2It’s almost 3 years since I left Japan and moved to UAE. Summer heat here in the Middle East can be unbearable and grueling. I kept a framed photo of me frolicking in the snow to reminisce the cold seasons I enjoyed so much in Hokkaido.

I was ecstatic when I was granted the scholarship for e3 years back. Studying in Japan has always been a dream for me. Studying in Hokkaido University helped me developed my research skills and meet a lot of passionate people. The opportunity and freedom to be creative with my research was there, thus a good chance of publishing my work.
