Course description and aims

To become a professional who can contribute to the development of engineering technology related to human health, treatments, and the environment, and train more such researchers and engineers, it is essential to learn a broad range of people-related knowledge. By giving practical guidance to master's students from another field's research lab who are taking part in a short-term practical, students in this course learn skills for guiding people from other fields through specialized knowledge and technology in a straightforward manner.

Student learning outcomes

By taking this course, students learn what is difficult for people in other fields to understand, and how best to guide them towards understanding. Students also learn skills to flexibly incorporate opinions from other fields and leverage them for the further development of their specialized field.


life engineering, human health, medical, environment

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

By guiding master course students (about 1 week) in laboratory, students educate the master course students through lab works and discussions.

Course schedule/Required learning
