Two Master Courses
Overview of Two Master Courses designed for diverse student needs
SDM will begin offering two separate courses for master students enrolled in the 2012 academic year or later. The courses are designed to respond to diverse needs of students who wish to partake of the cutting-edge education offered at SDM in different ways.
1. Research-Intensive Course
The Research-Intensive Course is so named as it puts somewhat greater emphasis on research rather than course work, as shown in the graphic below. It is suitable for new graduates as well as professionals who seek to gain research experience. Students are recommended to learn core subjects and undertake Design Project in the first year, as well as various major subjects along with a Research on System Design and Management in the first and second years.
2. Learning-Intensive Course
The Learning-Intensive Course is so named as it puts somewhat greater emphasis on course work rather than research, as shown in the graphic below. It is recommended for professionals who already have expertise from their careers (minimum three year work experience). Students are recommended to learn core subjects and Design Project in the first year, major subjects in the first and second years, and conduct a Research on Project Design and Management (research which summarizes the student's own project results or project subjects).
*At present, the Learning-Intensive Course is available only for those who speak, read and write Japanese with absolutely no difficulty.
