An Entrance to the World

The international characteristics of our University are due not only to our international researchers, but also to a wealth of opportunities for students to play leading roles in the world.
Students are provided with opportunities to present their research achievements at international conferences made under istructions of their supervisors. Your ideas and efforts may draw the early attention of other researchers, even while you are still a student at our University.
In addition, the University hosts several international conferences every year.
The University of Aizu is also open to the world in terms of research activities.

Contest-based Learning

The University of Aizu emphasizes education of students to acquire practical knowledge by attending competitions and contests. Students are encouraged to participate in various kinds of competitions held both in and outside campus. ACM/ICPC (*1) is one of those contests. The University hosted one of its Asian regional preliminaries in 2004, 2008 and 2013. Our students give great performances at the contest every year. A team from the University advanced to its World Final in 2009 which was held at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden, and finished in the tie for the 49th place out of 100 teams from around the world.

ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM/ICPC) is a global-scale programming contest for university/college students hosted by ACM (Association for Computing Machinery). The contest provides college students with an opportunity to interact with students from universities around the world and to shapen their computer knowledge and skills.
