Abstract


“System Design and Management” program, a study that integrates humanities and sciences by crossing many disciplines, is essential to foster talented persons who can lead in the development and operation of large-scale complex systems that are symbiotic, safe and secure. The subject of the new graduate school education is large-scale complex technological and social systems, with an education curriculum that provides practically oriented lectures through which students can acquire the capacity to consider systems, the faculty to design systems in line with system life cycles, and the ability for system management. By collaborating with industries and related stakeholders such as domestic and international educational research institutions, we designed an educational curriculum. As for the establishment of the graduate school in April 2008, the educational curriculum was formed to provide students with opportunities to acquire must-learn capability and knowledge that were classified into six groups. The validity of the education method was confirmed based on verification of the students’ self-evaluation and evaluation by the external evaluation committee after the first two years of graduate education.
