Twinning Program

Twinning Program

Twinning Programs is an interdisciplinary program with the purpose of nurturing the leading engineers proficient in Japanese-language. This program offers the students an opportunity to receive fundamental engineering and Japanese-language education for the initial two and half years (standard years of study in the first half of program) at home university and undergraduate education for the latter two years in Japan. The students who complete the twinning program and earn the required number of credits will be awarded a bachelor's degree in engineering from the Japanese host university as well as the home university. Although only those students who pass the examination for the transfer admission to the third year of undergraduate program given by the Japanese host university may pursue their study in Japan, others may continue their undergraduate studies and obtain a bachelor's degree from from their home university.
The faculty members from the Japanese host university give the intensive lectures of fundamental engineering at the home universities abroad a few times a year. In addition, the program offers the students an opportunity to receive short-term intensive training course implemented at the University in Japan in the first half of the program.
