Shibaura Institute of Technology, Tokyo, JP, Bachelors, Design Engineering

My study at Shibaura Institute of Technology was structured to have close links with industries. The fundamental concept of education is geared towards friendly designs both to humans and the environment. The practical aspects of education are combined with practical demonstrations that provide an understanding of the close interface between society and people. The College teaches intensive learning subjects during the 1st and 2nd years, comprising “Core General Subjects” to understand humans and society, and “Core Fundamental Subjects” including science and engineering subjects to acquire engineering fundamental knowledge. Additionally, “Core Specialized Subjects”, where the levels of proficiency increase every academic year, are designed to focus on studies on the blend between design and engineering. The Curriculum is intended to prepare students to study the comprehensive academic discipline of design engineering alongside experiencing practical aspects of their chosen field of expertise from the 1st academic year so that they can be fully aware of their potential future career path.
