Course description and aims

This course is for Master’s students with work experience as members of society. They obtain credit(s) and GAs (Graduate Attributes) upon certification by the graduate major to which they belong that they have already substantially satisfied GAs required for Master’s students, based on their work experience and achievement including those at past working places as members of society in the past and present.
In light of the requirements of the GAs, the course should, in principle, be taken by those who have approximately 2 years or more of work experience in companies.
The maximum number of credits that can be earned is 2 in total. It is possible to obtain a total of 2 credits by taking two Mater’s Recurrent Program 1 or 2 credits by Master’s Recurrent Program 2 alone. In the case that students take more than one course, the work experiences and accomplishments of the students to be certified in each course must be different from each other.
The courses are numbered 1Q: A, 2Q: B, 3Q: C, and 4Q:D, with two 1-credit courses (Master’s Recurrent Program 1-1 and 1-2), one 2-credit course (2) offered in each quota (Q).
The total number of credits earned through the "Master’s Recurrent Program" (including "Master’s Recurrent Program Advanced Practice") cannot exceed 2.

Class flow

Students shall consult in advance with their academic supervisor regarding the preparation of documents and materials objectively proving that they have already fulfilled the GA0M and GA1M requirements based on their work experience and achievements including those at their past working places, and the number of credits expected to be obtained.
Examples of work experience and achievements that may be considered for credit in this course are as follows;
-Business experience in companies
-Activities related to standardization (*)
-Experience in charge of events, etc. that can be shown externally
-Presentations at academic conferences (*)
-Past academic conference activities, international conference organizing committee members, etc.
-Experience in writing journal articles (*)
-Review articles, commentary articles, etc. (*)
-Patent applications (*)
(*) Do not duplicate the content of the "Seminar" courses they take.

After completing the documents and materials, students should submit them to their graduate major via their academic supervisor. Students must not just show that they have experience and accomplishments, but must explain in detail how they have acquired each item of GA0M and GA1M in their work experience and accomplishments.
Finally, the graduate major decides whether to approve the credit earned and the number of credit(s) earned from this course based on the documents and materials submitted by the students.
When the graduate major approved for credit and the number of credit(s), the students should register for an appropriate course in the most recent Q available for registration. Then, the graduate major reports grades based on that approval.
If students want to take this course at the very end of their master’s degree program, there may be no Q available. So, students should take this course early.
