who want “change” gather
2009 Spring Admission
Mikito Tateishi graduated in 2005 from Keio High School in Kanagawa, Japan. He received his B.S. degrees in Faculty of Environment and Information Studies from Keio University in 2009. At the same time, since 2008, he has been working in Tokyo for INTERLITERACY, as a concept designer and executive officer.
His project "Dynamic Multiple Display Arrangements (DMDA)" is a module-based distributed multiple display system that corrects geometric differences of multiple displays to virtually integrate them for seamless transition of graphics among the screens. This project requires project management skills and research skills on topics such as geometric correction, distributed computing, and advertising systems.
New inspiration from various backgrounds
SDM is the place where people who want “change” gather. He had been thinking about what we need to make this country better, and been involved in several activities. However, it was hard to put into words what he acquired through these activities. Since he has learned at SDM to think systematically, he has become much more effective at explaining his work.
At SDM, many students and faculty come from different fields, such as government, enterprise, consulting, entrepreneurial venture capitals, architecture, and so on. This is why SDM students and faculty are so open to discussion anywhere, anytime. There are many chances to collaborate with people whom you have never talked to. As an entrepreneur, he studied not only about SDM, but also about how to start a business.
He is currently a president of PRESYDENT which stands for Proactive System Design Team, a group of student leaders charged with enhancing the system of SDM. He does not expect that he will have an opportunity to utilize the benefit of this experience because it is not applicable without being triggered by his motivation to make SDM a much better place.
