Course description and aims

 The main goal of this course is to send students to universities abroad so that they can improve their English language skills, especially the practical communication skills necessary for global scientists and engineers. In order to enhance students' learning, we will provide them with preparation sessions before they go abroad, and have them submit a report after they return to Tokyo Tech.
This course will give students a chance to try to improve their English language skills overseas, which they have learned within Japan.

・Make presentations in English on topics of their own choosing.
