Recently, as the international trend toward globalization progresses, there is an urgent need for quality human resources that can contribute to and shape future society. To this end, there is a demand for our universities to nurture and produce such talented personnel that can deal with these changes in society by guaranteeing practical, quality education. Through the Global Innovation Joint-Degree Program, we aim to equip our graduates with the attributes needed to face ever-increasing global challenges by coordinating with our partners to offer an educational program that integrates areas traditionally separated in education: laboratory work and fieldwork; in-classroom and off-campus study; and R&D and business, among others. Indeed, we strive to offer the highest quality degree program by maintaining consciousness about what defines education and research, and how they should be carried out in university and higher education.
