In this era of global population explosion, climate change, destruction of both environment and diversity of species, all of which are closely related to agricultural science and technology, this program has been established to foster global leaders to contribute to bio-industry in harmony with the environment, effectively utilizing the regional characteristics of the Shikoku area as an academic research field.
The Shikoku International Student Education Consortium (SISEC), has been established under an integrated concept shared by the three graduate schools of agriculture of Ehime, Kagawa and Kochi Universities, in Shikoku, Japan. The SISEC offers a Special 5-year Course for International Students from Asian, African, and Pacific Rim countries (AAP Special Course). The program and application procedures are explained below.
In view of the objective of the AAP Special Program, we invite applications from people with the following competencies:
- Academic skills appropriate for advanced research on sustainable, environmentally friendly agriculture, forestry, and fisheries for food production.
- A strong interest in the area of environmentally friendly food production.
- Competence to find a research theme of one's own and the motivation to devote concentrated effort to it.
