Innovative Global Program

The IGP fosters students who can solve social issues with a bird's-eye view and ethical sense as an
engineer and contribute to the international society showing leadership.
This program provides an attractive and international education environment with three
characteristics.

First, students are guided by a supervisor and several advisers in a multinational manner to
experience a global and diverse education.

Second, students join a laboratory and start doing cutting-edge research from the first year (Honors
Program) so that they can get more interest in a research area and acquire expert knowledge and
technology at an early stage. In the second year, every two months by the instruction of the supervisor, students change their laboratory (Laboratory Rotation).
This activity gives students a bird’s-eye view and a wide knowledge indispensable in solving research
issues.

Third, a special curriculum accelerating interdisciplinary education and research has been organized.
Through this curriculum, students study across a wide range of fields, not only engineering and
science but also liberal arts including Japanese language which is useful for non-Japanese students.
In addition, students are expected to go on to the graduate school, hence, in the fourth year, they can
take subjects of the graduate school to realize a seamless education.

SIT is the first private university of science and technology in Japan that established such an
English-based bachelor's degree program and will impart the know-how to other universities as a Top
Global University.
