For students who want to become engineers, acquire management sensibilities and even work overseas

Philosophy and Goals
The globalization of economic activities has spurred great demand for resourceful global engineers equipped with management and communication skills and creativity to accompany their advanced technical skills. Training technology-related leaders to exhibit broad vision, a sense of ethics and international sensibilities, a strong orientation toward achieving goals and technically savvy management is an urgent task. This program seeks to produce corporate leaders with outstanding management sensibilities based on profound knowledge of the fundamentals and principles of fields related to engineering and practical skills.

Educational Goals
We train students to:
  1. Inculcate profound knowledge of the fundamentals and principles of fields related to engineering and practical skills.
  2. Cultivate advanced operational skills with knowledge and awareness of related fields (such as technology management, intellectual property and management) so that they acquire broad judgment.
  3. Develop the skills to conduct document searches and fieldwork as well as formulate hypotheses and verify them, and the ability as engineers or researchers to analyze technical problems, frame tasks and derive solutions.
  4. Build global communication skills and inculcate leadership and other social and interpersonal skills as engineers or researchers.
  5. Develop the sense of ethics needed to fulfill their social obligations as engineers or researchers.

◆JABEE-accredited Program
In March 2014, our Systems Design Program became the first master’s degree program in the engineering (combined or new disciplines) and engineering-related fields to receive Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE) accreditation. JABEE accreditation certifies the quality of the education we provide, and students who complete the program receive exemptions from the national First-Step Professional Engineer Examination and can begin practical training.

Guaranteeing the international equivalence of education quality
JABEE-accredited programs are recognized as the virtual equivalents of training programs for engineers elsewhere in the world. The industry is steadily becoming borderless, and JABEE accreditation is an essential program for us to survive.

Benefits for students who complete the program
Because they are recognized internationally as engineers, students who complete an accredited program are highly rated in various ways, enjoy better employment opportunities and the following benefits:
  1. Exempt from the national First-Step Professional Engineer Examination
  2. Possessing engineer-in-training qualifications, they can acquire national associate professional engineer status simply by registering Note: Upon accumulating a minimum of four years of experience, they can become professional engineers if they pass the Second-Step Professional Engineer Examination.
Acquiring associate professional engineer status while working is possible
You can acquire associate professional engineer credentials in half the usual time (two years) by completing the accredited Systems Design Program. We also have many evening classes, and our excellent location— a five-minute walk from Shinjuku Station—also makes study easier for people who work.
