Four new schools in region Asia!

Welcome to four new member schools! 

NIT Ibaraki College, (NITIC)

Our goal is to incorporate the concept of CDIO into our engineering education so that students
can acquire the following abilities. These are defined as the learning and educational goals of
our College.

(A) The ability to master basic knowledge in professional engineering based on the principles of
(B) The ability to solve any problem tasks comprehensively by utilizing knowledge and skills in
the professional engineering, humanities and social sciences.
(C) The ability to improve the communication skills and the attitude to actively respond on
social issues in collaboration with others from an international perspective.

NIT Kumamoto College, National Institute of Technology (KOSEN)

We believe that, by introducing the philosophy of CDIO Initiative, teachers can obtain
solutions to challenges that they are facing in their individual education improvement
activities. It is also expected that expanding this concept will complete, based on CDIO, the
education system of all the six departments of our college, and at the same time, to improve
the educational ability to enable its effective implementation. This is directly linked to the
realization of the school's educational philosophy, which consequently leads to the
improvement of the level of our students as future engineers.
