Project Description

Short-Term Study Program in Japan (SSJP) is essential for AUN/SEED-Net students to conduct high quality doctoral thesis research of international standard. The research themes/topics will be carried out by AUN/SEED-Net students under joint supervision of Host Institutions (HIs) and Japanese Supporting Universities (JSUs). During the period of scholarship, students in the Doctoral Degree Sandwich Program and Integrated Graduate Program can visit their JSU’s co-advisors to receive thesis research supervision.

Program Objectives

  • To increase the number of highly qualified faculty staff with doctoral degree in engineering at Member Institutions (MIs) which would be essential for contribution to sustainable development of ASEAN countries.
  • To strengthen doctoral degree programs at Host Institutions so that the production of highly qualified doctoral degree holders in engineering needed for the ASEAN countries is materialized in collaboration with MIs and JSUs.
  • To strengthen human networking among teaching staff of MIs and JSUs.

Important notes:

Students are not accepted to travel overseas during the stay in Japan under this program as the study period at JSUs should be maximized unless indispensable for the thesis/degree of completion.

The number of study and its duration will be specified upon commencement of doctoral study based on the consultation between advisors at HIs and co-advisors at JSUs.

During Long SSJP period, monthly allowance will not be provided.
