Q. What kind of research do I do in the Honiden-Tei Lab?
A. Our laboratory is working on software development of next generation software systems, such as IoT systems, automated driving systems, and self-adaptive software. For more details, please refer to the Research section.

Q. How do I decide on my research theme?
A. Half of the students are working on a theme of a research group already in progress in the laboratory, and the other half of the students are working on a new research theme that they are interested in on their own. In both cases, you will be supported by a senior student in the laboratory as a mentor.

Q. Where will the lab's activities be based?
A. Our lab is located in GCS Bldg. 40, room 606. (See Access for details.) Each student will be assigned a desk with a large display. In 2020, all laboratory activities are basically conducted online due to the effects of the coronavirus.

Q. How often do I need to go back and forth between the Nishi-Waseda campus and my lab every week?
A. Students in our lab usually visit the Nishi-Waseda campus about 1 to 2 days a week. They seem to choose lectures to be in a few days. It takes about 15 minutes from Nishi-Waseda campus to our laboratory using a shuttle bus. Some students are using bicycles.

A. The regular meetings are mainly as follows:

  • All laboratory members attend: Regular meeting (10:00-11:30 on Thursday )
