Abstract

The proposed speech covers an overview of a long term study, teaching and research experience of the presenter in Japanese universities (Osaka University, Kumamoto University, and Kyushu Institute of Technology) from 2002 to 2011. First, a general view on the official education system (from pre‐school to University) of Japan is given, and then the speech is focused on the structure of universities and the schools of engineering. Engineering education in both undergraduate and post‐graduate levels is discussed. The role of laboratories (KENKYUISHITSU), and the advantages of the Japanese engineering education in comparison of the other existing regional and world‐wide education systems are emphasized. Finally, the reasons and secrets behind developing of the high-technologies in Japan over the years are explained. The speech is supplemented by pictures, memories, and short video clips.
