Project-Based Engineering Career Education Programs by the Collaborations with Private Companies
MetadataShow full item record
The newly developed education programs including some regular curricula have been conducted with a common idea based on what we call "the ability for engineering" that is defined as abilities to learn and create. The purpose of the activity is reduction of unemployment caused by the discrepancy between the expectation on job hunting and the practical condition after getting job. We refer to the novel education programs on the internship with respect to the reformation of career designing. A major part of the project is composed of two kinds of internship programs and a workshop on career designing. These courses are prepared for the students from 2nd to 4th year grades. One of the most characteristic ideas is the program what we call "Market Internship", which is introduced for the first time in Japan from the view point of the users who are living where the engineering technologies are practically utilized. This program is mainly intended for the 2nd year students. The career design program named "Career Design Workshop" is prepared for the 3rd year students with respect to the discussion by the students, company engineers and faculties. The 4th year students are going to take the "Technology Internship" from the point of view of manufacturers they will be employed in near future. A couple of characteristic programs what we call "Network of 100 Wisdom" and "Enterprise Week" are planned to assist the whole system, as the collaboration with the local companies and the practical career design lectures, respectively.
