    Japan is a great place to study engineering, especially for my major, electrical engineering. I chose SIT because SIT has strong networks with government and industry. The Global Technology Initiative Consortium, establish by SIT in 2015, is well known as the platform for the collaboration, in which a lot of cooperative activities are made to solve challenging problems faced by industry and government throughout the region.

    I study Mechanical engineering,
    but here as I am on a sandwich program, I get to the subjects from different engineering and that's very interesting. So I choose some different ones that I won't be able to take in Brazil. Environment here is very nice.
