Held University Campus Lecture Visit
On September 27, a "University Campus Lecture Visits 2019" event was held at the Kanazawa-Hakkei Campus of Kanto Gakuin University. Mr. Okuyama, Executive Officer, took the podium to represent Isuzu. Taking the theme of "Advanced Technology to Support Transport-What Trucks Need in the Future," the seminar covered a wide range of topics, including the environment, safety, connected * initiatives, and the characteristics of commercial vehicles.
The Lecture Visits are held as part of a collaboration between the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) and universities around the country, with top management staff from JAMA manufacturers serving as lecturers to talk to university students directly about the appeal of cars and motorcycles, and the importance of Japanese manufacturing. These lectures have been held since 2013, with this year marking the seventh round.
On the day of the event, 150 students, mainly mechanical engineering students, attended and listened attentively. During the Q&A session, many questions were asked by the students, indicating their high level of interest.
