There will be six hosting institutions conducting the lectures from Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand and The Philippines. The host universities are 6 prominent universities in Asia:
Technology is a strong driving force to solve social issues and move our civilization forward. Engineering education will contribute to create a better society around the world. Meanwhile each country has its own culture, languages, history, ethnic groups, education, and technical advancement. It is essential to acquire application skills of engineering knowledges based on practical understanding about differences. Especially Asian region is so diverse with more than 4.6 billion population in 48 countries and 3 territories (the United Nations). Communication under the multicultural environment is a vehicle to facilitate our collaboration. Curiosity and respect to other people is a motivator for life long learning.
In order to nurture such Asian talents, this course will provide opportunities to study cultures and technologies in 5 countries (Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, and Japan) from the faculties of ATU-Net member universities. Participants will develop technical knowledge, its application methods, and teamwork spirit through lectures and group activities.
