Campus Report:IMAC-U(International Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering - Undergraduate Course)
The first class of MAC-U (International Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering --Undergraduate Course taught in English) in Tohoku University, Japan was started in October, 2011. The students come from various countries all over the world came to Sendai and study together. This movie is a short report to various aspects of the campus life of these students over this half year.

Research and education

In this laboratory, we are not only focusing on next generation networks and building our research based on theoretical design of networks and protocols in order to optimize the communication networks, but also emphasizing on professional human resources development.

Rising into space -- micro-satellites and micro-rovers change the game | Kazuya Yoshida | TEDxTohoku
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Thank you for your requests for the English subtitles.
We are currently working on the English subtitles; however, they will take some time to publish as they require approval from TED as well. In the meantime, we will create a summary of the talk in English to be shared with you shortly. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your kind patience.
From Tohoku to The Moon : Team Hakuto's Odyssey
Did you know that there are people in Tohoku who are aiming for the moon?
Team Hakuto, one of the 18 teams competing for "Google Lunar XPrize", are maintaining their research under the guidance of Professor Yoshida, who also helped with the Japanese "Hayabusa" mission.

To win the grand prize of $20 million, private teams (with no more than 10% in government funding) must Land a robot safely on the Moon, move 500 meters and send back HD images of their exploration, and all this has to be accomplished by the end of 2016.
They are one of the top 5 finalists for the milestone prize, that the winners will be announced on January 26th.

We went to their laboratory to cover this stage of their space odyssey.

[ARLISS] : Tohoku Univ. Team in ARLISS comeback competition 2008
Every year, ARLISS comeback competition is organized in Black Rock desert in Nevada, U.S.A. The mission of the competition is to return a payload (that is launched to 4,000 m above by a small rocket) to the designated goal autonomously. Our approach is runback that uses a wheeled type small mobile robot as a payload. In 2008, we developed an slight-expandable wheels that were made by sponge material. It increases diameters of the wheels, and also, it absurbs impact force of landing. Using these wheels, we won the 1st prize of the competition. The videoclip shows a digest of our robot's motion.

Introduction of TESP-Robotics, Tohoku University Engineering Summer Program
TESP Robotics is a two-week summer program for international students. We designed this program with the combination of core lectures taught by more than 10 professors and laboratory-based hands-on activities, so that students can get in touch with up-to-date robotics technology of Japan for various challenging applications.
We are looking forward to having you here for next summer programs. Come and join us! You can experience leading-edge technology and beautiful Japanese culture.
