As preparation for their study tour to Higashi-Matsushima, Japan, in February 2019 the international class at Rødby Skole came to visit TUEC to learn more about Japan. They were introduced to various aspects of Japanese culture, history, religion and language as well as topics specific to the Tohoku area, which they were to visit, such as the Great East Japan Earthquake. After the introduction the class was treated to Japanese green tea and given a tour of the premises before returning to Lolland.
The program for the study trip included a visit to the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) for the purpose of discussing sustainable design, UN's sustainable development goals, circular economy, and the role and responsibilty of designers in the global shift to "greener" economies, production and consumption.

The study program was concluded by a visit to the Royal Library, for the purpose of studying its design and architecture - especially the newer "Black Diamond" building.
