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.
