National Institute of Technology, Independent Administrative Institution [Ube Kosen] A mixed team of students from the Department of Materials Engineering and the Department of Management Information received an award for medical and pharmaceutical research
Ube National College of Technology (Ube City, Prefecture, Principal Masao Yamakawa, hereinafter referred to as “Ube Kosen”), a mixed team of students from the Department of Materials Engineering and the Department of Management and Information Science participated in the 38th Annual Meeting of the Japan Society of DDS, Student Research Planning Contest “Your Research Institute”. Received high praise in “Let’s create a
In the contest, with the theme of medicine and pharmacy, ideas for the future “Create your laboratory, your pharmaceutical company” using DDS (Drug Delivery System) technology were presented. Received the highest award and 3rd place in the “high school student category” and the chairperson’s award in the “university student category”.
[Research background and activities of students]
In order to realize Society 5.0, the future society that Japan is aiming for, the Institute of Technology will advance research sophistication by strengthening cooperation between technical colleges from the 2nd year of Reiwa [Takeda 1]. Sophistication of social implementation education of technology)” has been launched.
One of the GEAR5.0 projects is disaster prevention and mitigation (base school: Okinawa National College of Technology, starting in 2021). Ube Kosen, which participates in this project as a sub-unit team, is in charge of developing materials and teaching materials related to life sciences, and developing human resources for technical college students. In this contest, students from the Department of Materials Engineering and the Department of Management Information formed mixed teams from the perspective of “cultivating human resources for technical college students,” and engaged in
interdisciplinary [Takeda 2] [Hirohara 3] research.
In the research, the students of the Department of Chemical
Engineering were responsible for the development of materials such as DDS functions, and the students of the Department of Management Information were responsible for examining sales prices, profit margins, and catchy product names based on market research. This award was given in recognition of our interdisciplinary activities of materials engineering and management, and it can be said that our research that takes advantage of the characteristics of our school, which has a non-engineering department, the Department of Management Information, is recognized. .
