日本, 米国およびシンガポールの高等教育機関における工学設計教育の国際交流 International Joint Project of Engineering Design Education among Three Institutions in Japan, U.S. and Singapore
An international joint program of Engineering Design has started in 2004 between Kanazawa Institute of Technology, Singapore Polytechnic in Singapore, and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in the United States. Students from the three institutions worked on the same engineering design project, the main theme of which was, "Bus Transportation/Urban Transportation System in the 21<sup>st</sup> Century". Student teams chose their own project themes from specific design areas, which were related to the main theme. Their achievements were unique in their solutions due to the differences in society and culture in Japan, the United States and Singapore, although all the design teams followed the same engineering design procedures. In this paper, the international joint project is discussed in details.
