University 'web rankings' for 2010

The question that Japan HEO asks is: What does the popularity of university websites indicate? Japanese universities are handicapped by a lack of English-language content. Even if they have extensive English-language content, search engines might not penetrate too deeply. Web surfers have to get past the layers of Japanese-language-only pages first. Another negative factor for Japanese universities sites is the fact that most Japanese access 'ez-web'/mobile web pages, and it is not clear how well the three measures (Google, Yahoo, Alexa) that 4icu uses actually quantify ez-web/mobile web traffic in Japan. At any rate, here is summary of the rankings with some stats about Japanese institutions included.

Crouching tigers ready to pounce

THES has a short report on a speech given by the president of Yale about Asian countries' efforts to create 'world-class' universities. The focus is on China. This is because higher education in the US and UK have great hopes that they will be able to 'export' HE to China, with its huge population. The main obstacles will be, however, cultural and language barriers. Still, in the face of a bleak economic outlook in developed countries around the world, many people, including university presidents, is putting great hope on the current expansionary economic boom in China (i.e., bubble).

Crouching tigers ready to pounce

4 February 2010

By Phil Baty

Yale boss welcomes 'audacious' ambitions of emerging Asian nations.


>>    [Richard C. Levin, president of Yale University] said that the economic development of Asia in the past 60 years had "altered the balance of power in the global economy", and that the rising nations of the East "all recognise the importance of an educated workforce as a means to economic growth and the impact of research in driving innovation and competitiveness".

The lecture focused on China, which has seen student enrolments more than quintuple from 1 million in 1997 to 5.5 million in 2007. It now has the largest higher education system in the world, but still has a gross enrolment rate of only 23 per cent, compared with 82 per cent in the US.   <<

    * JASSO has overseas reprsentative offices in Indonesia,  Malaysia, Republic of Korea and Thailand to provide information and advice to people interested in studying in Japan, in cooperation with relevant organizations including Japan alumni associations.

Factoid: How many international students are there in HE in Japan?

A few years ago, Japan's efforts to increase international students seemed to have run into difficulties. Many international students were actually more interested in working and saving money than they were in studying. Some, it was alleged, were even involved in such dubious jobs as nightclub hostesses and prostitution.

The total seemed to have hit a plateau at around 120,000 and actually declined some. However, oversight of the students has improved--most are here to study Japanese or receive training in Japanese. And the number is now increasing over 5% per year, reaching a total last year of over 130,000. Most international students are from China, S. Korea, and Taiwan. SE Asia is well represented by increasing numbers from Vietnam and Malaysia. Most Malaysians come to do four-year and even graduate degrees.

Private dormitories regaining popularity with Japanese university students


Private dormitories regaining popularity


>>   Private dormitories for students with a live-in caretaker are becoming popular in today's troubled times, typified by the recent murders of female college students and the spread of a new type of influenza....Living in the dormitory costs about 100,000 yen a month, including meals and administrative expenses. A certified dietitian creates menus that include about 200 different dishes a year, including various regional specialties....According to Tokyo-based Mainichi Comnet Co., which manages several student dormitories, there are about 600 private dormitories with about 45,000 rooms for students with live-in caretakers nationwide, and of them, about 340 dormitories with about 25,000 rooms are concentrated in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

Japanese universities world-class in tech innovation

Japanese universities and research centers are still world-class in technological developments, as these three news items below show.


Tokyo University develops organic flash memory
updated 05:35 pm EST, Wed December 16, 2009
Flexible organic flash memory prototyped in Japan

Researches at the University of Tokyo have developed what they are calling organic flash memory, which shares its basic structure with flash memory but is made entirely of organic materials. Its erasing and reading voltages are rated at a low 6V and 1V, respectively, though data can only be written and erased more than 1,000 times. Foreseen uses of the new memory include large area sensors, electronic paper and other big electronic devices, though the founders admit the technology's memory retention time of only one day needs to be extended.

Developed by a group headed up by Takeo Someya and Tsuyoshi Sekitani, professor and research associate at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems, Graduate School of Engineering, the University of Tokyo, the prototype uses a polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) resin sheet as a substrate with an array of 26 by 26 2T memory cells placed on it. The sheet is flexible enough to be bent until its radius is 6mm without causing damage. The short memory retention can be increased by reducing the size of the element and employing a longer self-assembled monolayer (SAM), which is made of phosphoric acid with an alkyl chain. In the prototype, it is 2nm thin. [via Tech-On]


Univ of Tokyo Develops 'Organic Flash Memory'
Dec 15, 2009 11:02 Tetsuo Nozawa, Nikkei Electronics

The polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) resin sheet with a memory array

The memory array. The white parts are control gates, and the watery blue parts under the three electrodes are pentacene.

The structure of the intelligent pressure sensor. From the bottom, they are an organic memory sheet, a pressure-sensitive rubber sheet and an electrode sheet.

The University of Tokyo developed the "organic flash memory," a non-volatile memory that has the same basic structure as a flash memory and is made with organic materials.

The erasing and reading voltages of the new flash memory are as low as 6V and 1V, respectively. Data can be written in and erased from the memory more than 1,000 times.

With its flexibility, the flash memory can be used for large-area sensors, electronic paper and other large-area electronic devices if its memory retention time can be extended, the university said.

The organic flash memory was developed by a research group led by Takeo Someya and Tsuyoshi Sekitani, professor and research associate at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems, Graduate School of Engineering, the University of Tokyo. The research results were published on the 11th December 2009 issue of Science magazine.

The research group used a polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) resin sheet as a substrate and arranged 26 x 26 2T memory cells in an array structure on it. The sheet is flexible, and the university confirmed that it can be bent until its curvature radius reaches 6mm without causing mechanical or electrical degradation. The university also confirmed that the sheet can be used as a non-volatile memory.

Furthermore, the research group made an "intelligent pressure sensor," which can retain a pressure image in the sheet, by integrating the memory array and a pressure sensor.

The new memory is called "organic flash memory" because it is equipped with floating-gate transistors, which are also used for silicon-based flash memories. Specifically, the PEN substrate is mounted with aluminum (Al) control gate electrodes, insulating films, aluminum floating gates, organic semiconductor pentacene, and source and gate electrodes made of gold (Au).

The insulating film was made by using a self-assembled monolayer (SAM), which is made of a kind of phosphoric acid having an alkyl chain (CH2-CH2-CH2-...), in addition to AlOx. The SAM is as thin as 2nm.

There are non-volatile memories developed in the past. One is made by using ferroelectric materials, and the other has a floating-gate structure like the latest non-volatile memory. However, it is difficult to lower the writing and erasing voltages of the former memory than 20V. The latter memory also has a high erasing voltage. And it becomes unstable when exposed to air because its memory properties fluctuate due to the nonconstant thickness of the insulating film.

This time, the university researchers employed an SAM whose insulating film does not require thickness control to reduce the variation in memory properties. Moreover, this SAM is stable in the atmosphere.

As a disadvantage, the new organic flash memory has a memory retention time of only one day. But this can be drastically improved by reducing the size of the element and employing an SAM with a long molecular length, the university said.


Japan Aims to Develop Reliable SSD With Wireless Technology
Oct 19, 2009 08:36 Motoyuki Oishi, Nikkei Electronics

Data is wirelessly transmitted.

Japanese government selected the "dependable wireless solid-state drive" as a new research theme of the Core Research for Evolutional Science and Technology (CREST), a project led by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), for fiscal 2009.

The dependable wireless solid-state drive means a highly-reliable SSD that wirelessly transmits data.

The goal of the research is to realize an SSD that is highly reliable in terms of data retention time and the number of rewritable times and stable against various error factors such as loose connection, power-off while in use, water exposure and electrostatic discharge (ESD) caused by contact with human body.

To meet that goal, MEXT aims to develop a "wireless SSD" capable of wireless communication (10Gbps) and power transmission at a distance of 1mm and a host system for it. Also, the ministry plans to equip the SSD with a NAND flash memory of several terabytes.

In the CREST projects, which are allocated a large budget, researchers work together in three to five years. This time, the research is led by Ken Takeuchi, associate professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Systems, Graduate School of Engineering of the University of Tokyo, Tadahiro Kuroda and Hiroki Ishiguro, electrical engineering professor and associate professor, respectively, at Keio University.

Takeuchi, Kuroda and Ishiguro will take charge of developing an error-correcting system (for wireless communication and memory), wireless communication technology and power transmission and analogy technologies, respectively. The research will be conducted in collaboration with major consumer electronics manufacturers and memory manufacturers.

"I hope that Japanese universities, too, will create a device based on a new concept with practical use in mind," Takeuchi said.

US losing its allure as study destination for Japanese students

Despite the strong yen versus the dollar, fewer and fewer Japanese students are choosing to study in the USA. And, just as more Chinese students are coming to Japan to study, more Japanese are opting to go to China.

See link for full report at Yomiuri Shinbun/Daily Yomiuri:



>>  According to a report by the Central Council for Education, an advisory panel to the education minister, there were 42,843 Japanese students studying in the United States in 1994--78 percent of all overseas students that year. However, this figure had gradually fallen to 35,282, or 46 percent, in 2006, according to the Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry. The Open Doors 2009 report published by the U.S.-based Institute of International Education also underscored this trend, noting that the number of Japanese students studying in the United States fell by 13.9 percent to 29,264 in the 2008-09 academic year from the previous academic year. <<
