As part of our international partnerships and in addition to sharing information and inviting overseas researchers to our university, we will also participate in a continuous exchange program of students and faculty members with local governments, businesses, and civic organizations. For example, we will arrange the participation of invited foreign students and faculty members in Project-Based Learning. Through this initiative, we hope to develop a cooperative education program and ensure the quality of our design education. Propelled by design thinking approach, we will promote multidisciplinary education and research that will connect our organization to a broad range of sectors in society.
For concrete examples of the three levels of faculty engagement and the center of excellence plan, please refer to Part 8, “Design thinking will change XX”
