1. In 2003, the curriculum was revised to include two new subjects during the first part of every specialization: Technical Writing, where special staff teaches the students how to write technical papers, and Intellectual Properties, which follows the Government’s strategy for the proliferation of intellectual property rights and where the lecturers include a wide and varied range of people from Japan Institute of Invention and Innovation (JIII) and the Patent Office, Patent lawyers etc.
2. Conclusion (planned) of the agreement to become an affiliated graduate school of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).
Nihon University’s Graduate School of Industrial Science already signed this agreement in 2001, and in 2003 we also plan to do so. This will enable us to provide instruction and education by top researchers from the country’s largest research institution, and will further enrich our own research and help our graduate students to make the most of their own natural talents.
3. Starting in 2003, a new Research Assistant (RA) system has been adopted for students in the later half of the doctoral program. As research assistants on large joint projects designated by the Director of the School of Engineering, these students will be paid an allowance of 50,000 yen per month. Just like with Teaching Assistantships, this system is designed to alleviate the financial burden on our graduate students.
