Advanced Course

Advanced Course For graduates of the six academic programs, we offer a two-year advanced program aimed at cultivating workers with an even broader range of education as well as more highly specialized skills and knowledge. Students who complete this advanced program will be awarded a bachelor’s degree.

The advanced program is characterized by the following:

1 Including the year of graduation research completed by students in their earlier program, three years of continuous research experience.
2 Enhanced international communication skills, thanks to an international internship of approximately one month held over a long summer vacation period.
3 Joint research in partnership with a local industry. Students will identify a problem to tackle based on the needs of the industry in order to further develop their capacity to formulate solutions to real-world problems.
4 A strong emphasis on dialogue and discussion with teaching staff, thanks to small classes.
5 The opportunity for students to report their research findings and deliver a presentation in English at the “Asian Symposium on Ecotechnology”, organized by the Institute of National Colleges of Technology, Japan.
