IROAST Internship Programs Hosted by Associate Prof. Cai Have Been Completed!

Mar 4, 2022

From January 17 to February 25, 2022, five young researchers from abroad did an internship with Associate Professor Cai (IROAST), this time in an online format, as they could not come to Japan due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

2.LIU, Wei PhD. student LIU, Wei, participated in an internship as part of a joint project with the University of Lyon. His topic was a review of textile reinforced concrete (TRC) repair techniques subjected to coupling impacts of environmental and mechanical load, and he conducted research with a particular focus on the bond behavior of the TRC-old concrete interface.

3.WEN, Yue WEN, Yue, a master's student in the double degree program at Nanjing University of Technology and Fukuoka Institute of Technology, conducted a literature review on current Resilient Concrete Structure (RCS) technology to provide basic information on what RCS is and how it is realized. The project was successful.

From his final report


This internship was beneficial for the five students and they will be able to continue to promote collaborative research with Associate Professor Cai in the future. They plan to submit their research results from this internship to several international journals.


IROAST plans to continue recruiting graduate students and young researchers who wish to do internships in the coming year.

We will announce on our website when the call for applications opens.
