Suggestions on
Preparation and
Since this class is carried out in an omnibus style, preparation for each lecture is not necessary. But raise daily attentions about people, society, nature and engineering relations.  
Requirements In principle, English is used in this lecture. However, in some cases English and Japanese are used together as necessary, in such a way that there is no disadvantage for international students who can not understand Japanese. 
Grading Method Evaluation will be based on reports and/or small tests carried out by each lecturer. 
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
