What is Sandwich Program?
Sandwich Program is where the student continues to be registered at their home university, while studying for a period of time between six months and a year at Shibaura Institute of Technology. For example, the student may study for their first two years at their home university, study at the College of Engineering at Shibaura Institute of Technology for the third year, and then complete their studies at their home universities. Students have a wide range of study options, from all departments and colleges. Classes are taught in English, and Japanese language lessons are also available.

Lorenna Lucia Bastos Bandeira (Brazilian)
Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of Espírito Santo (Brazil)
I chose SIT because it’s a technological university so that I was certain that I could be in touch with many different technological fields. The opportunity of belonging to a lab is also what attracted me. SIT also offers English classes and Japanese language lessons which could motivate me to learn the language. On top of that, SIT has a good relationship with international students. SIT has clubs, events and an International office that stimulates interaction between International and Japanese students and we have a lot of supports as well.
Priscila Ribeiro Zucato (Brazilian)
Electrical Engineering – Emphasis in Electronics
University of São Paulo (Brazil)
While staying in SIT, I was able to get in touch not only with the Japanese lifestyle, but also with a more global community as I had the opportunity to know and work with people from all around the world. Those experiences taught me how to respect and better understand people from different cultures and backgrounds. I also could get in touch with many different fields of engineering, like mechanical and environmental engineerings, through classes I had the chance to attend. All these factors contributed to offer me new knowledge and I am sure that it will be useful on my professional career as an engineer.
