慶應義塾大学湘南藤沢キャンパスの学術交流協定締結機関の1つであるフランスのグランゼコールÉcole Nationale Supérieure d’ Électronique, Informatique, Télécommunications, Mathématique et Mécanique de Bordeaux (ENSEIRB-MATMECA)の学生Sonia Boumendjelさんが、20122月から8月までの6ヵ月に渡り、環境情報学部の三次仁准教授の指導のもと、インターンシップを行いました。Soniaさんから寄稿されたレポートをご覧ください。

I joined the Auto-ID laboratory at Keio SFC, in which I studied RFID technology. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the use of a wireless non-contact system that uses radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data from a tag attached to an object, for the purposes of automatic identification and tracking. RFID is one of the main themes of the laboratory so it was a great experience for me to join it. Not only did it make me learn more about the theories of this technology, but it also allowed me to work on various projects in order to precisely put my knowledge into practice. I had also opportunities to learn Japanese language at Keio SFC, which I am truly thankful for. This experience really helped me develop my social life and meet many new friends.


 (With Associate Professor Mitsugi, some labmates, people from GS1 Japan and the owner of a farm, Mr. Kondo. On the occasion of a visit to Fukuroi, Shizuoka to do some experiments for the Melon project which I was working on during my internship.)


(My labmates and I were in Koriyama, Fukushima to help the staff of Mozilla Japan show children who were touched by last year’s catastrophe how to customize their own Mozilla homepage. We also interacted with them through games and activities.)

Moreover, being in a foreign country for six months, I was able to discover the very colorful Japanese culture. Keio SFC is located in a very green place, in the prefecture of Kanagawa, but is still easily connected to the huge cities of Tokyo and Yokohama. This location is perfect for students wanting to study in a peaceful and beautiful environment without being isolated from the major urban zones. Finally, the great transportation system of Japan makes it very easy to visit the country which I really enjoyed.


 (In front of Matsumoto Castle in Nagano. A tea ceremony was being held in the garden of the castle and some people kindly invited me to watch their ceremony and taste tea.)
