Abstract: Many Japanese universities normally have the educational system, which checks the students’ "knowledge" about theories and answers, but engineering education in Germany provides a system to check the students’ "understandings" instead of their "knowledge". So, Japan has specialists; however, Germany has generalists, when students graduate from universities in engineering fields. It is important that the graduates should understand and improve their weak points by comparing themselves with students from different countries and/or backgrounds.
