- First year
Students take introductory subjects to cultivate their mental preparation for studying engineering, and basic subjects in fields such as mathematics and physics.
They learn the principles of engineering management through a four-week internship conducted with the cooperation and collaboration of local enterprises and by taking classes in entrepreneurship.
- Second year
Students study the basics for understanding the management of companies and other such organizations, to ensure a smooth transition to the full-scale engineering management curriculum from the third year onward.
The four-week internship provides students with repeated opportunities to experience business practice in various enterprises, etc., fostering awareness that allows them to detect the challenges concealed behind various images.
From the second year onward, students select a package (field) of engineering-related subjects to take. Faculty members provide careful guidance regarding the subjects that each student should take on the basis of factors such as their ambitions, experience, and learning history.
- Third year
For management-related subjects, in addition to typical classroom-based learning, students take practical courses in skills such as debating and logical speaking, to help them to firmly establish the knowledge they have acquired as their own strength.
In the internship, third-year students form teams with fourth-year students, and collaborate with company representatives over a six-week period to detect and elucidate concrete issues. It is anticipated that experiencing practical work in a team with students from another year group and company representatives will allow them to simultaneously cultivate skills such as teamwork, communication, leadership, and followership.
- Fourth year
Students take an ordered series of development level subjects in engineering and management, firming their foundations as potential business leaders of society’s.
Unlike the other programs offered by the Faculty of Engineering, this program does not require students to carry out a graduation research project. Instead of such a project, students engage in a twelve-week internship as coursework. In the first half of the internship, students acquire team management and leadership skills through work in a team with third-year students, and, working with company representatives, gain first-hand experience of the practical work involved in the business process of detecting and elucidating issues, devising plans for solutions, and ultimately solving such issues.
