A Long Journey of My Formal Education

(written by: Willy Yanto Wijaya)

JSME Miura Prize日本機械学会三浦賞 (JSME Miura Prize)

 

It’s been a long journey, roughly 22 years, the length of my formal education. Though eventually I got my Doctoral degree, this does not mean that the education or learning stops here. Life is to learn, and it will continue to the end of my life.

During the span of my formal education, here I try to summarize several of my essential achievements, as well as contributions I have made especially in the form of academic publications.

As for my academic thesis listed below, they are open for public and can be downloaded (just click on the links provided).

Educational Background:

  • Bachelor of Science (Cum Laude) in Physics, Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), Indonesia (2003-2008)
  • Master of Engineering in Mechanical and Control Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology (2008-2010)
  • Doctor of Engineering, Mechanical and Control Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology (2010-2013), working mainly on Methanol Steam Reforming for Hydrogen Production
