About me

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!

My name is Katarina, Kata for short, and I'm a 25-year-old girl from Finland. I got accepted to the "Vulcanus in Japan (2015-2016)" programme and I'm going to spend a hopefully great year in Japan starting this September. :) I'm a freshly graduated Master of Science (Technology) in Electrical Engineering. My major was Electrical Systems and minor Energy Markets.

The Vulcanus programme consists of a 4-month Japanese language course in Tokyo and an 8-month internship in a company. During Vulcanus internship, I'm going to work at Hitachi Research Laboratory in the city of Hitachinaka Hitachi, which is about 2 hours north from Tokyo by train.

You can find more about the Vulcanus programme here.

My hobbies include taiko drumming and show dance and I hope to continue both dance (I want to try out yosakoi) and taiko in Japan. I'm planning to start these hobbies when I move to Hitachinaka. So while I'm in Tokyo I'm going to focus on studying and exploring the city as well as playing this super fun taiko game.

  1. Hallo Kata,
    my son was short-listed for Vulcanus in Japan 2017 - 2018. When will He know, that he was accepted by a host company?
    I don´t understand it from QUESTIONS & ANSWERS on web of Vulcanus. Can you answer me? Thanks.
