Innovation for Design and Engineering Course
About the Innovation for Design and Engineering Course
The Innovation for Design and Engineering Course trains “monozukuri (production) architects” who create innovation as designers integrating sensitivity and functionality.
- Human resources who can pinpoint potential market expectations, speak to customers about the future, and envisage the shape that next-generation products and services should take (product planning officer)
- Human resources who can manage everything from optimal design to manufacture utilizing knowledge of sensitive and functional design (development officers)
At the AIIT, we have designed study content that combines these two professional abilities to formalize monozukuri (production) specialists with the objective of training human resources who can pinpoint potential customer expectations, create structures that achieve functionality using sensitivity and provide new value embodied in people, that is human resources who can creatively and rationally develop products and services that maximize customer benefits.
Furthermore, four career models have been provided to enable students to develop a learning plan aligned with their own future career from a diverse curriculum. This creates career plans tailored to the professional status (human resources) in which students can be active in the future as a monozukuri (production) specialist.
The course has established career models and recommended subjects for each of these human resources.
• Industrial design model
• Development design model
• AI and Data science model
• Global system engineering model
