At the 2022 Tohoku University School of Engineering Open Campus (7/27 and 7/28), we held a “Mini Forum for Female Junior and Senior High School Students: My Dream in Engineering”.
This was the first time in three years that the event was held face-to-face, and a total of 134 high school students (76 on 7/27 and 58 on 7/28) attended on both days.
Female faculty members and graduates who are active in the business world gave lectures.

Following the lectures, current female students gave an “Introduction to Campus Life,” which introduced the features of the five departments of the Faculty of Engineering and student life, and concluded with a “round-table discussion” (question time) with faculty members and graduates.
After the forum, many high school students continued to ask questions of students, lecturers.
