This nine-week program allows undergraduate and graduate students to focus on cross-cultural engineering and design practices while exploring the rich history and culture of Japan. In addition to traditional coursework, students will participate in site visits to engineering firms to learn about the design and engineering of Japanese transportation systems, software and games, and manufacturing.
