GTIE Student Training Entrepreneurship Education Program (GTIE-SEP) 2023 Meetup (2nd)

The GTIE Student Training Entrepreneurship Education Program (GTIE-SEP) 2023 Meetup (2nd) was held at INDEST, Tokyo Tech Tamachi Campus on Saturday, November 11, 2023.
Five students from GTIE University, ranging from first-year university students to first-year doctoral students, and Dr. Hirata from the University of Tokyo participated in the event.

The theme of the meetup was “design. The lecturer was Prof. Takashi Adsugatomi of Tama Art University. He is a product design professional who has been in charge of designing Sony products as a product designer and has served as the chairman of the jury for the Good Design Award of the Japan Institute of Design Promotion.

Dr. Takashi Ajitsutomi, Tama Art University

In the first half of the meeting, he gave a lecture on a wide range of themes from various ways of thinking about design itself, such as evaluation that does not depend only on the beauty of the form, the value created by the product, and the stories spun by the product, to specific examples of market-in and product-out. In the second half, each student made a presentation on the “most valuable thing” they found at a 100-yen shop, and everyone, including the lecturer, shared their opinions on the selected thing and the viewpoint from which they chose it. It was a great opportunity for not only the students but also the GTIE staff who participated to gain something from this event.
