    DAY 1

    ~ Multidisciplinary Education for Research Universities ~
    Mar. 10th @FS hall, Environmental building, UTokyo Kashiwa Campus

    Lecture & Discussion

      The topic of Day 1 is “multidisciplinary education for research universities”. The presenters came from various faculties and universities, UTokyo GSFS, MIT SDM, MIT TPP, Boston University, University of Michigan and Keio SDM. Each presenter talked about their faculty’s history and curriculum. Unlike classic research universities, every university coming this event has emphasized multidisciplinary education but has different approach and curriculum style.

    Presentation by GTL Student Team

      GTL Students team gave presentation about their activity on developing the new course. This is the course that originally held at MIT, students and industry collaboratively solve the problem which is given by the industry. In last autumn, GTL students team worked on this project with Industry. In the presentation, GTL students team showed that they has taken several meeting with Industry and MIT. Furthermore, They showed great idea for solving the problem thanks to the collaboration between UTokyo, MIT, and Industry. This was the example and kick off of collaboration between UTokyo, MIT and Industry.
