Assistance for student and faculty personal creative projects
By using the equipment at Innovation Plaza, students engage in various activities such as research and student organizations (human-powered aircraft, formula car, rocket production, etc.). In order to use the equipment and devices, students must attend the initial seminar for each device to learn safe usage and acquire a license card issued by the Plaza.
