Ananda Nandy, MechE, '19

The Advanced Technology R&D Center in Amagasaki City, Hyogo Prefecture is one of Mitsubishi Electric’s several research laboratories around the world. The group I worked in was called the smart systems group, and it conducted research related to smart energy system management. My work involved applying machine learning methods to analyze energy data. The results could be applied to improving energy management on the company end and decreasing energy use on the customer side.

"MISTI Japan allowed me to develop technical skills while experiencing first-hand the culture and language I had been studying for so long. By living in Japan for 3 months, I was able to gain a new pespective on both work, technology, and culture."
