Course description and aims

Lecturers from non-academic societies will share focused subjects regarding the knowledge required in the society, the way of research development, risk managements, and ethics, and the process of policy making in industry and the government. The course aims to widen the students' perspectives on the study, research, and their own future, supporting the students' carrier designs. The course provides students with a lot of opportunities to participate in discussions, so that they can realize the importance of communication through the bidirectional lectures.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will have the abilities illustrated by the following behaviors and tendencies: accepting a variety of values and exploiting them in the students' own future designs, not persisting with values based only on their own experiences, enthusiastically expressing their own values on acceptance of the new values from experienced people, flexibly revising a deficit in your own values on admitting the valid points of others, and understanding that communication is important in the development of their own carrier.

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

Each lecture will take about 30 min, focusing on a subject of the lecture's selection. After that, students are invited to speak in a couple of minutes illustratively about "what do the students lack with regard to the subject of the lecture", "how to get the ability", and "what they should do right now for carrier designs". Once in each month, an alumnus of TokyoTech will lecture for 1 hour and join a panel discussion with representatives from students and alumni.
