Study, work abroad fair

Ryugaku Journal Inc., a company that provides study abroad information services and sales of study abroad related publications, will hold study abroad and working holiday fairs on Saturday and Sunday.

A range of people, from students to businesspeople, study abroad every year with different goals in mind. Also, each person’s situation depends on funding and time available for studying abroad.

Therefore, it is necessary to carefully consider plans for studying abroad. This fair intends to provide information to help such people make the most of their time abroad.

At the venue, Ryugaku Journal will explain about studying abroad and working holidays. It will hold seminars for each age group, including junior high and high school students, college students and working people, and a seminar about finding jobs after returning to Japan will also be held.

On Saturday, the fair will be held at Ryugaku Journal’s Osaka and Fukuoka counseling centers. On Sunday, it will be held at Ryugaku Journal’s counseling center in Shinanomachi, Tokyo.

Admission is free, but reservations are required.

Structural maintenance

Kozo Keikaku Engineering Inc. (KKE) will hold a free seminar titled “Enhancement of infrastructure maintenance management” at its head office in Tokyo on Feb. 25.

One of the lessons from recent accidents with social infrastructure (e.g., bridges and tunnels) caused by their deterioration is the importance of the maintainability of such infrastructure.

With today’s heightened awareness for maintenance management, KKE has urgently decided to hold this seminar to look at recent achievements in this field.

Having focused on the issue for several years, KKE provides services to build a maintenance management cycle for social infrastructure by combining the accumulated maintenance management knowhow and experience of its customers and its cutting edge IT and simulation technologies.

The keynote speech will be given by Yozo Fujino, a professor in the Department of Civil Engineering from the University of Tokyo, on the future of infrastructure maintenance management based on his recent studies.

The latest technologies for improving maintenance accuracy, objectivity, efficiency and structural health monitoring will be introduced as well.

The seminar will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the new annex of KKE’s head office in Nakano Ward, Tokyo. Admission is free but advance reservations are required.
