Program for Enhancing Systematic Education in Graduate Schools

Internship Summary

This program for Internship is a part of the activities for “Cutting-edge Engineering Education through Practice-based Active Learning” sponsored by the Japanese Ministry of Education's Supportive Program for Improving Graduate School Education” for 2008 through 2010.
The purpose of the supportive program is to enhance the problem-solving ability of the youth through introducing “Practice-based Active Learning courses into the graduate curriculum. This program consists of internship, teaching assistantship, field-research and other discipline courses.
Among them, the internship program is the one that offers students the opportunity for better understanding and increasing their foresight into technical needs and creating new interdisciplinary fields. For this reason, we would like to ask you for your strong support and collaboration.

The internship program may be summarized as follows;

  1. This internship is considered to be one of the regular courses credited for a partial fulfillment for the Master/Doctoral degrees.
  2. This internship is held at domestic/abroad universities and industries.
  3. The expenses like flight fare, accommodation/living expenses incurred through this internship is basically supported by the program budget. However, the expenses incurred for the internship program itself shall not be covered by this budget.
  4. The lengths of the internship are 8 weeks and 12 weeks for master and doctoral students, respectively. Those periods are not necessarily consecutively chosen, but may be divided into several times.
  5. There is about two-month-long summer vacation for the TTI academic year 2009, during which they will be able to participate in this program. However, students may choose some other appropriate times if necessary.
  6. The fields for which students will perform their internship works may not necessarily coupled with their thesis works, but unrestricted.
  7. The advisor at TTI for each student shall keep a close contact with the faculty member(s) being responsible for the internship program at the host university/industry.
