Initiatives in Developing “Project Design” Education for Vietnam-Japan Institute of Technology
- Other Title
Kanazawa Institute of Technology (KIT) has focused on Project Design (PD) education for over 20 years. The aim of the PD education is cultivating the innovation ability of university students through team-based approaches to problem finding and solving in the real world. In 2015, KIT and Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HUTECH) in Viet Nam established a joint educational partnership to develop the PD education curriculum to Vietnamese students of Vietnam-Japan Institute of Technology (VJIT), a newly-established school in Ho Chi Minh City that is attached to HUTECH. In this paper, we describe key elements of PD education, building processes for the first PD classes in VJIT, implementation of facilitator training for lecturers, and attempted evaluation from a preliminary survey.
