将来の大学院教育に求められるもの What is Required for the Education at Graduate School in the Future
This report is focused on personal consideration of the author for an ideal method of human material training for the future. It is based on the author's knowledge and experience obtained through his work in a corporative research laboratory andd university for 24 years and 12 years respectively, in the fields of research, development, management and education in general. Firstly, the current of technology is recognized. In the recent years, various technologies, machinery, electron, information, science and physics. have all started to unify and with the development of nanobiotechnology, intersectional technological development has newly started. All sorts of science technology, including computer, communication systems, biotechnology, nanotechnology, energy, new materials and brain science, have begun to interact with social technology, which is for animal, plant and the human being as if those two technologies were being woven into a web (fabric.) In the mechatronics committee of the 18th term of the Science Council of Japan, for which the author is appointed chairperson, named this state as "Technology Weaving." In such a tendency, the society's needs will diversify more and individual demand will also be important, therefore, so-called "Citizen's Technology" based on resident's needs will soon be expected. In this report, the present situation described above is considered in a viewpoint of human material training at graduate school of university and the necessity of MOT (Management of Technology) education for training of people who adapt to such changes in the society is explained.
