SDG Professional Course at Nagaoka University of Technology, JapanPosted on August 8, 2018

This graduate-level course incorporates engineering education built on a foundation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and is designed to produce practical engineers/researchers with high levels of expertise and educators of advanced engineering.

In 2015, the United Nations designated a set of 17 global SDGs (addressing issues such as poverty, healthcare, education, and others) to be achieved by 2030. In order to accomplish these goals, it is crucial to further develop and spread science and technology on a global scale. We have committed to this effort by accepting students from a wide range of countries and providing them with a practical education program in collaboration with Japanese industries. In this way, we aim to nurture the development of individuals who can contribute to the development of science and technology, especially in newly industrialized countries.

Since 1996, NUT has conducted the International Graduate Course for Continuing Professional Development (CPD), which has produced over 300 practical engineers and educators from 15 countries. The SDG Professional Course (SDG-P) expands upon the CPD Course with the inclusion of SDG principles, and is a more advanced practical engineering education program. We anticipate that course graduates will be active in various countries throughout the world, help to improve the global level of science and technology, and contribute to the accomplishment of the SDGs.
