Rin-koh

What is unique about MJIIT is that every week, there will be a Rin-koh session which is a mandatory activity for each of i-kohza. Rin-koh is one of the Japanese’s cultures that have been practicing in the university.

Rin-koh (輪講) has a meaning of “each person taking turns reading and explaining a book“. The original term, rin-doku (輪読), which literally means “reading in a circle“, originates from the activity Japanese engineers perform when first reading instruction manuals and technical reference books in a foreign language. The engineers attempt to understand the material and explain the content to their fellow engineers back in Japanese. It is an activity that not only benefited Japanese engineers in such a way that knowledge only available in a language that was hardly understood was made available for everyone, but also everyone participating in the rin-koh sessions contributes to a steady stream of new information every week.

Rin-koh sessions are held every Friday, from 3.00p.m to 4.00p.m, taking place at level 8 Tribology and Precision Machining i-Kohza.

The Rin-koh session encourage students to be more confident which is good for practicing their presentation’s skills. Besides that, it exposes students to the real working environment especially when attending meeting or presenting their ideas in the future. It is also a platform for students to gain more knowledge and sharing ideas.

The Rin-koh is mainly attended by i-kohza group’s members which are lecturers and students, however guests lecturers are sometimes invited. Students from other faculties are also welcome to attend. Content of presentation slides can be from research paper, progress report, to demonstrate research skills or sharing research input.
