Onsite Training (D1-D2)

Through participation in an onsite team project and short stay in a disadvantaged region either in Japan or overseas, students will learn about specific cases. Through this, they will learn basic thought processes and approaches to address the cultural features specific to regional societies and overcoming technical issues. The students will experience two or more multicultural coexistence issues and summarize their results as a case study, working as a team with students from different fields. The case studies thus completed will be retained as new educational materials.
