This is for Doctoral course student and aims at providing an opportunity to learn academic presentation and public speech. In interdisciplinary research, communication with researchers in other Engineering fields is very important, and thus this course will focus on easy-to-understand presentation instead of technical discussion.
Participants need to prepare a seven-minute presentation on their research topic in advance. The participants will be divided into four groups and learn to improve their presentations and speech by having advice from native English-speaking teachers and teammates. In the last week, the participants will be divided into two groups and give presentations. The best presentation of each group will be awarded a best-presentation award.
