Through AY 2019, Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) organized the Tokyo Tech Winter Program as a short-term inbound exchange program for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at overseas universities to pursue individual research projects under Tokyo Tech faculty supervision.

In light of the COVID-19 epidemic, Tokyo Tech relaunched the Winter Program in AY 2020 as Bringing Ideas in Remote Discussion (BIRD), a virtual exchange program for students from Tokyo Tech and The University of Melbourne. BIRD will be conducted for a second year in AY 2021.

Participants in the AY 2021 program will
(1) increase their knowledge of technologies in mobility and logistics;
(2) enhance their problem-solving skills through group work with students from diverse backgrounds and academic disciplines; and
(3) expand their academic and social networks.
