Through lectures, we will provide opportunities for students to reconsider their current research and future career paths from a broader perspective, and support career setting. In addition, by providing opportunities for students to actively participate in discussions, students will be able to realize the importance of communication and develop the ability to ask questions accurately.

Student learning outcomes

Learn that companies and universities have common and different values ​​for R & D, and develop the ability to observe the world widely and use it for their own future design.
