Dear Professor H,
My name is RAI
from Indonesia. I was graduated from Institute of Technology Bandung
with major Electrical Engineering (Control Engineering). I graduated on
I am intended to pursue my master
degree in Japan. I am interested to join your laboratory, especially in
the development of electric vehicle. Currently I am applying ***
scholarship in my home country. Currently I am in third phase
(Finalist) in the screening process, which is the latest screening
process to get the Scholarship recipients.
have met before in Japan, during Institute of Industrial Science, Univ.
of Tokyo Open House on *** 2006. At that time I have asked you
about the possibility of joining your lab. You said that every students
who wanted to join your lab have to have financial support (e.g.
Is it possible if I can get your recommendation for the final process of scholarship?
Thank you for your kind cooperation.
It is OK to make recommendation of you satisfy the requirements:
(1) financial support : *** is ideal
(2) Japanese language
is very important for EV research, because we often make discussion
with industry people in normal speed Japanese. If you are not good at
Japanese, I hesitate.
In the past, a student from Philippine
supported by *** could not pass the entrance examinations to our
master course twice and he resigned.
I hope you will clear these points.
Dear Professor H,
I want to thank you for your quick response for my email.
to point no. 1. *** Scholarship is now in final
session (12 Finalist will compete to get 3 places of ***Scholarship). If I am accepted as the three recipients, I will go to
Japan in ***, and learn Japanese Language in the first 6 months,
and 6 months after that as research student, and the second and third
year is the time for master course.
Regarding to point number
2 (Language). I’ve lived in Japan before for one year (October 2005 –
September 2006) as exchange student in the University of
Electro-communications. I will improve my Japanese prior to departure
to Japan, and during the first one year before I enter my master course
entrance examination. I also like to watch anime and Japanese Drama. I
think it will improve my Japanese ability, especially in listening
Since I want to join your lab, I cancel my intention to
join the MEM Program, as you said in IIS Open House (June 2006) that
you wouldn’t receive any students from MEM Program. I choose for the
regular master program.
the past, one former exchange student from my program in the Univ. of
Electro-communications has join your laboratory as master student. She
was a girl from China. I hope I can follow her footsteps.
fine to get your formal recommendation? It is one of the requirements
to compete in *** Scholarship final session. *** said
that it can be sent by email or by post. Hopefully you don’t mind to
give me recommendation by email.
Many thanks for your kind response.
Dear Profesor H
I am really glad that you want to give me
recommendation. I will do my best to be one of those three recipients
of *** Scholarship
Regarding to the recommendation
letter, I have filled the XXXX (I change it in bold and italics) so
that It appears as follows. Point no. 3 should be changed because I
will arrive in Japan in *** if I am accepted
recommendations, could you send it to me (email@example.com) in a new
email with the subject “Formal Recommendation for *** Scholarship
to RAI”? I really appreciate your kindness.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
Thank you for your second mail. I am remembering you. Everything is OK. I hope you will be accepted as one of the three.
You say about ***. She was a nice student. She is now working at Freescale (Motorola Japan).
Is it all right as my recommendation as follows?
Dear Mr. RAI,
This is to inform you that I am ready to accept you in my Laboratory as a research student from XXXXX on condition that:
1. You will be granted the *** Scholarship starting from XXXXX.
2. You will complete the necessary application procedure yourself to become a research student at our graduate school.
You must pass the entrance examination to enter the master$B+c(Bs
course, which is to be held in February XXXX to become a regular
student in the master’s course for Academic Year XXXX. (If you fail
this, you can challenge the next one to be given in September XXXXX.)
Please find the recommendation letter attached herewith. Can you read that?

Dear Professor H
Thank you for the recommendation letter. The
recommendation letter’s contents is fine for me. I can open and read
I will try hard for the final session. I hope I can be those three recipients.
PS : I’ve attached my curriculum vitae within this email
Dear Professor H,
In your IEEE paper, usually UOT March II Model is always used. The paper such as
- “Robust Design of Body Slip Angle Observer with Cornering Power Identification at Each Tire for Vehicle Motion Stabilization”
- Future Driven by Electricity and Control – Research on Four-Wheel-Motored “UOT Electric March II”
In the future, do you have plan to develop UOT March III as your new EV car? and if you do, is it will be realized soon?
interested in the systems that could accommodate the road condition in
Indonesia. For instance we have some “speed bump”, that is a part of
the road that is higher than other part to slowing down the vehicle
speed. I attached the picture of a moderate speed bump.
not a problem during the day since we can see it clearly, but if we
drive in the night, sometimes we didn’t see it, and in worse case we
can lose control of our vehicle. So the problem is how to improve the
brake system (since you realize it when it’s too near, or even you
didn’t realized after you’re on a “speed bump”). I didn’t see these
kind of speed bump when I was in Japan. Does Japanese have it?
Thanks for your cooperation
