Cooperative Engineer Education Program with South Indian Universities based on the Long-Term Internship Experience


Initiatives for the Development of Practical Global Engineers

Japan-IndiaCooperative Practical Engineer Education
  1. Establishment of a Quality-Assured Credit Transfer System
    A quality-assured credit transfer system will be established wi th the following three departments at NUT: the Department of Mechanical Engineering; the Department of Electrical, Electronics and Information Engineering; and the Department of Information and Management Systems Engineering. Under this system, graduate students will be encouraged to participate in mutual exchange programs for six months or more.Through the application of the credit transfer system, there will be no need for students to defer their graduation due to overseas studies.
  2. Establishment of a Joint Degree Program
    Through the establishment of a joint degree program, NUT and the collaborative Indian universities will cooperatively provide an education and confer a joint degree to students who complete the program.This program will facilitate the development of engineers and researchers with a master’s or doctoral-level education from both India and Japan, as well as facilitate high-level postgraduate research while maximizing the strengths of both universities.
  3. Invitation of Research Units (Mobile Laboratories)
    Exceptional research laboratories from the Indian partner universities will be invited to NUT, and advance their educational and research activities as part of the staff and students at NUT.Both universities will therefore in effect be able to cooperate in conducting world-class research, and mutually elevate each other’s level of research.
  4. Expansion of Industry-Academia Collaborative Overseas Jitsumu-Kunren Internships
    By advancing Japan as a Jitsumu-Kunren internship destination for Indian students and mutually expanding the overseas Jitsumu-Kunren internship system, we can increase cross-cultural understanding as well as develop practical engineers who can play an active role at the international level. Through the implementation of Jitsumu-Kunren internships for Indian students in Japanese companies and Japanese students in Indian companies, the students will be able to deepen their understanding of the corporate culture in their counterpart countries. In this way, we are able to train engineers who can contribute to the collaborations and cooperation between both countries' industries.
  5. Establishment of an On-Site Administrative Office
    With cooperation from the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), NUT will set up an on-site administrative office in Chennai, and assign a coordinator to support overseas students from Japan and to act as a contact for Indian students seeking to study in Japan.
  6. Development of an Awareness Program to Motivate Students to Study in India
    By holding discussions with senior students regarding their experiences in India, and through special lectures by specialists with expertise in Indian life and education, this program aims to motivate students to participate in overseas studies in India.
