Nurturing the five abilities in the comprehensive five-year program:
Materials Science Frontier Curriculum
Cooperation with the School’s Human Resource Development Support Organizations: Global leader development is supported by the Communication in Science and Technology Education and Research Program (CoSTEP), Center for Engineering Education Development (CEED), Front Office for Human Resource Education and Development, Office of International Affairs, and the Frontier Chemistry Center (FCC). Interdisciplinary Exchange Education with a Small Number of Students: Five students with different areas of concentration form a group and train, conduct evaluations, and perform cooperative research to solve difficult problems in contemporary society while being advised by a mentor.
Cooperation with Overseas Universities: Through cooperation with more than ten overseas universities, the school holds overseas training, summer camps, and symposiums to enhance students’ ability to work globally.
Cooperation with Corporations: Through cooperation with more than ten Japanese companies, program participants engage in corporate internships and consortiums.
Education system oriented toward global leaders, centering around the “Education and Research Unit Activities”
A Knowledge and Intellectual abilities, B Personal effectiveness, C Research governance and organization, D Engagement, influence and impact (especially D-1 Working with others)
To learn to manage not only one small group but also large groups by building teamwork with various members and acquiring leadership and followership traits.
From the time of acceptance (M1 second semester) until the start of the last year (D3)
Students who pass QE1 will become members of the “Education and Research Unit” consisting of five program students in different disciplines. Focusing on activities in the units, students work on mutually related course subjects and events of the leading program curriculums. These curriculums are designed so that students can learn how to work in a small group and manage multiple groups within a large framework according to a natural progression.
