Message from Mr. Faizan Khan




          Please give a short introduction of yourself.

My name is Faizan Khan, and I am from India. I have done my Bachelors
(Electronics and Communication) from Integral University, Lucknow, India, in
2012 and I have done my Masters (Nanotechnology) from Aligarh Muslim
University, Aligarh, India, in 2015. Currently, I am pursuing Ph.D (Nanovision
and Technology) from Shizuoka University, Hamamatsu Campus, Japan.
Now coming to my family background: We are eight members in my family
so, I have three sisters and four brothers including me. My father is a
Retired Engineer and my mother was a house wife.
About my strengths: I am a very optimistic person, honest and I am very
hard working in my work with dedication and determination.
Now coming to My weakness. To speak a lie is very difficult for me, and I hardly say ‘no’ to anybody.

What is your favorite thing about Hamamatsu City?

Hamamatsu’s climate.

          In what way has your impression of Hamamatsu City or Japan changed since coming here?

I was scaring before coming to Japan and Japanese people, because I didn’t know the Japanese language and were not aware with the Japan rules and regulations, so I was thinking that it would be a problem for me to survive in Japan. But after coming to Japan I realized that no other country can be like Japan and I am fortunate to get it. Most important thing about Japan is its people, they are well behaved, neat and clean and helping nature.




What attracted you to choose Shizuoka University as a place to study?

Shizuoka University is well renounced University and having good ranking among different Universities. I had found that a niche scientific research is going on and specially in Nanovision Technology department which attracted my attention towards it.


In what way did you adjust yourself to Japanese culture?

Here, everything is good enough and there is no such problem of adjustment and I got adjusted very well. But, one thing that make me curious is Japanese food, still I am not getting used to with Japanese food. Till now I am eating our Indian food. But, I am attending parties and functions with my friends and trying to getting used to with Japanese food and Japanese culture.

Please give a message to students or researchers in your home country who may be thinking about studying in Japan?

I would like to acknowledge my home country for giving me such a great opportunity to study in Japan. And I would like to encourage my juniors to study in Japan.
For students who wants to study in Japan, I can say that study is the important part of our life and we must have to take care before taking any step for choosing any country for our higher studies. Japan is the only country that provides you enthusiasm in your study, security of life, security of Job. So, I would like to strongly recommend new students to choose Japan for their higher studies.
