Starting from the third year, program students are divided into each course, following a curriculum designed to enhance their respective abilities on a full-scale basis. The long-term internship program, which lasts about six months, features different host organizations for students to learn at depending on the course selected.
The Deployer course allows students to experience multiple internships at start-ups, venture capital firms, etc. at home and abroad with the aim of developing wide-ranging, international discernment, prescience and planning ability, and establishing various personal relationships.
The Innovator course offers a long-term internship at a single company where students learn essential points for translating research results into the development of final products related to future electronics. The goal of this course is to embark on collaborative research.
Students in the Investigator course make appointments with the world’s top universities and research institutes on their own to conduct research abroad. While being conscious of different perspectives there, the students pursue their studies and hone their skills, laying the foundation for international collaborative research. The course aims to build high-level, trust-based relationships with the host institutions, which will allow the students to produce internationally co-authored papers in their final year.
In the course of implementing the internship program, the responsible faculty members in the Education Office work with the program staff members outside the University (Deployer mentors, etc.) in managing the progress of the program and providing support.
