・Brazilian “Science Without Borders” Program: Undergraduate Sandwich Course

Claudio Lucas Salgueiro Freire from Brazil

Course: Green Engineering Program, The Faculty of Science and Technology

Sophia University was my first choice for the Brazilian “Science without Borders” Program because it was located in Tokyo, the capital of Japan, and was known as a great university.

It is a unique opportunity that I’ve been experiencing so far at Sophia University. What I learned in the last semester significantly improved my academic knowledge at the engineering field and physics field. In the laboratory classes, I managed to learn how the theory and its application actually works on real situations through experiments and observations. The structure of the laboratories is very favorable, and the methodology of the professors facilitates the learning due to the high interaction with the students.

I am also able to improve beyond the academic side. I am taking a Japanese language course regularly. In addition, I am learning new languages such as English, Spanish and even French through the conversation with international students at my dormitory. This experience helps me not only just to talk with more people but also to seek for scientific materials for research in other languages.

In other words, my study at the Sophia University is providing me a lot of opportunities to improve more than I could expect on my academic and personal side.
