Objectives and Principles of Master Program of Innovation for Design and Engineering

Curriculum

The first-year curriculum provides students with a systematic understanding of monozukuri and basic knowledge that are prerequisites for the next step.

The second-year curriculum is designed sequentially to train students to acquire the skills to perform management tasks through PBL-style lectures.

The objectives of education employing PBL methods is to provide the opportunity to appropriately leverage student knowledge, mainly learned in the first year, in real business practices and to increase student's competencies (ability to accomplish tasks). Also, we provide the environment to use the knowledge that has been gained in learning through PBL courses to improve and increase the students' knowledge and application skills.
