Innovative Global Program

As society continues its rapid globalization, worldwide technological innovation is occurring through the fusion of multiple science and engineering fields into new cutting-edge fields.

Such a society requires leaders who are not just specialists, but possess broad knowledge and a global perspective, also capable of responding flexibly in interdisciplinary research that fuses different fields, and who are capable of leading international teams.

The new Innovative Global Program —IGP—at SIT’s College of Engineering will be established in October 2020 with the aim of fostering such individuals.

All undergraduate classes
will be conducted in
English, and lead to a
degree in engineering.

From their second year, students
undertake lab rotation, spending
short periods in laboratories of
various disciplines to acquire
interdisciplinary knowledge of other
fields.

Students can gain a broad perspective on science and engineering while learning to solve problems using a variety of approaches characteristic of each field.
