Project Practicums in Partnership with Industry

The Department of Technology Management for Innovation (TMI) awards credits for any educationally beneficial extracurricular activities that students undertake together with companies and/or research institutes. Such activities are classified as project practicums, which include hands-on practice, research, and studies. One such initiative is overseas training conducted in cooperation with TMI’s corporate partners.

Overseas Training

TMI organizes overseas training in partnership with transcosmos inc. Under this program, students get to visit overseas companies for about one week during the summer break (in academic year 2019–20, students visited companies and universities on the West Coast of the United States). Notably, the students themselves take the initiative in planning the training, including selecting the site and arranging the interview appointments.

International Technology Management Program

Students from diverse national backgrounds are invited to engage in studies and research at TMI. For instance, international students are welcome to pursue a master’s degree through the International Technology Management Program. Offered in English, this program aims to cultivate bilingual technology management professionals who are fluent in English and Japanese. This education program, which is offered in partnership with industry, includes internships at companies.
