Fostering Science in Education (FSiE)


Fostering Science in Education (FSiE)

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments is committed to our Fostering Science in Education (FSiE) program throughout the Asia Pacific region. To facilitate the development we have designed programs and partnerships with major secondary and tertiary educational institutions.

As part of the partnership agreements Shimadzu is committed to providing the tools and opportunities for students to experience and develop hands on skills in the exciting world of science. The scientific equipment and instruments which have been supplied to the Fostering Science in Education (FSiE) program will give students exposure to scientific equipment used at universities and in industry, thus enthusing the students to become our next generation of scientists whose work will bring future benefit to us all.

The Fostering Science in Education  (FSiE) program was initiated on October 29, 2008 when in partnership with Victoria University the ‘Shimadzu Laboratory’ was opened  by Mr Ando of Shimadzu Corporation Japan and Professor Ian Rouse. Globally, Shimadzu has a long history and corporate philosophy of contributing to society through science and technology.

These philosophies are also very important to Shimadzu locally and we can think of no better way of realising our goals than to take an active role in educating the scientists of the future through our Fostering Science in Education (FSiE) program.
