Greetings, I am Satoru Sato, and I am the new chairman of the board. I graduated and completed my undergraduate and graduate studies in civil engineering at Tokyo Institute of Technology more than 20 years ago, and around 2018, I got an opportunity to become a student of the Open University of Japan. I am currently a full-time undergraduate student at the Open University of Japan, and I plan to graduate in the second semester of 2021, but I will retain my academic status as an elective master’s student for the 2022 academic year.

I understand that it is difficult for undergraduates of the Open University to find a job or build a career as an engineer since the university does not have an engineering department. Under such circumstances, I think we need to think about how we can support them.

I hope that I can contribute to the development of science and technology and the improvement of the national economy, as stated in the Professional Engineer.Jp Law.
