Project Class

Working Cooperatively with Companies on Project Classes

Project class

The only initiative of its type in Japan, project classes are extremely popular, taken by over 80% of students in SIE. Teams of two to four students choose a theme from among those proposed by companies, local governments and university teachers, and then spend about six months solving the issue contained within. By working with current and real problems, students learn about software and system development, market research, and other subjects. At the end of the semester, after working on development with the organization that proposed the theme, students give a presentation reporting the results of their effort. Thanks to this program a variety of products have been brought to life.
