Japan Industrial Study Tour Program


Program Information

The unique feature of this Japan Industry Training Programme is that the lecturers themselves deliver the essence of the actual challenges they have taken on, such as agri-tech, factory Iot and automation, and customer expansion strategies for the world’s leading theme parks.

There will also be plenty of company and facility visits, including a visit to an IoT and robot technology incubation facility by Softbank and the Osaka Bureau of Industry, a world-leading electrical discharge machine factory in Ishikawa Prefecture, a highly technical civil engineering site and an infrastructure management facility.

The industrial study tour also includes an introduction to the Industry 4.0 trend in Japan, workshops on soft skills and leadership, and time to think about your future career.

As you have come all the way to Japan, you will also be introduced to and experience Japan and its cultural customs. Japanese university students (technical college students) also participate in the program. We hope you will enjoy the opportunity to meet other business people and other participants in late summer.
