Innovative Educational Framework

Career Development Support

AIIT considers it important to develop competent people through practical education and to link competent people thus developed to the business community where they can play an active role. AIIT established the Career Development Office to introduce specific job opportunities to students who have acquired professional knowledge and competencies so they can leverage and further develop their knowledge and competencies through actual work experience. The Office identifies and cultivates a variety of employment opportunities for students and then provides each student with individualized career development support. Specifically, the Office has been taking the following support actions:

・Develop a diverse array of career options in collaboration with industrial bodies, local governments,the Tokyo metropolitan government, and other relevant organizations.
・Conduct internship programs mainly for students who are new university graduates.
・Offer to students detailed career counseling and guidance most appropriate for their respective circumstances.
・Establish a system to grasp the latest status concerning graduates’ career changes and offer career counseling.

Employment Situation
 Most students in the Master’s Degree Program for Information Systems Architecture have full-time jobs. In terms of careers, most students are already involved in the field of information systems in some way or other, and they continue to be actively involved in this field after completion of the master’s degree program.

Students in the Master’s Degree Program for Innovation in Design and Engineering include working students with full-time jobs, as well as new graduates of engineering universities and design colleges or graduates of advanced courses at colleges of technology. Most of the students enrolled in the master’s degree program straight from universities and colleges find employment with companies in the manufacturing industry.

In both of these master’s degree programs, there are many businessmen-turned teachers who have abundant work experience in the real business world, and they offer detailed career counseling and guidance to students. The AIIT Alumni Association was formed in 2008 with AIIT’s first graduates, and the Alumni Association provides an opportunity for alumni and incumbent students to deepen interaction with one another.
