Humanities and Social Science Subjects

Course Aims

The Humanities and Social Science Subjects work with the Mathematical and Scientific Subjects and the four specialist departments to give the students a well-rounded education. The Subjects aim to provide students with the basic academic abilities needed to sufficiently understand the engineering and chemical material they will be learning. Course objectives are as follows:

  • To improve students' ability to communicate with others in Japanese and a foreign language, and thereby gain better understanding of different cultures.
  • To train students to understand the structure and characteristics of modern Japanese society as well as engineering ethics through acknowledging the influence of technology on society.
  • To foster self-discipline and creativity, and train students to see things from a global viewpoint in order to contribute to the welfare of their local community.
  • To encourage proactive thinking, learning and action, and promote healthy bodies and minds, to help students to function as valuable citizens.
