Studying at Meiji to learn Japanese "MONOZUKURI" technology

I wanted to study "monozukuri," which is the Japanese manufacturing industry, its craftsmanship and its history. In Malaysia, people think of Japan when they speak of monozukuri. That is one of the main reasons I decided to come to Japan to study.
When I was a student at a language school in Japan, I joined a campus tour of Meiji University and I observed the practice of manufacturing robots there. This experience sparked my interest in Meiji University. At Meiji University, there are many support systems for foreign students in both studying and daily life.
Teaching assistants and the staff of the Office of International Programs are helpful to us. Japanese monozukuri technology is amazing. It is applied in the automobile, camera, and other various industries.
I wish to work at Japanese companies first, but in the future, I hope to start my own business and test my abilities.
