Tohoku University

Overview

HR(human resource) Development

Overview

Our center is not only focused on creating the next-generation integrated electronic technology, it is also committed to develop human resources for carrying out research and development.
To cultivate doctoral students and young researchers, participation in industry-academic collaborative research is important. Their participation in the research and development involving different fields, where they will work together with corporate researchers and engineers from various industries and learn how knowledge is applied in on-site developments in business, will help broaden their overview and deepen their expertise. We hope that the researchers and engineers from the participating companies will also acquire knowledge systematically and reaffirm/understand the importance of learning, in innovation and creation, through their participation in the research and development involving different fields, which encompass the technology supply chain, here at our center. In addition, looking to the future, we will work on the development of highly skilled human resources for the IT and automotive fields through collaboration and cooperation with industry, academia, government, and financial institutions.
We will build an international base for industry–academia collaboration, where global knowledge circulates, and we will produce innovative technology and highly skilled human resources, contributing to an energy-saving society.

Advanced human resource development project

At CIES, the following project has been implemented with the objective of producing and developing young research personnel in the field of electronics technology

1. Lectures and curriculum delivered by industry–academia joint faculties (credit courses)

In these courses, we explain the types of talents required in industry sectors and society as a whole, create curriculums based on those principles, and offer lectures by members of industry–academia joint faculties.

2. Industry–academia joint faculty organizing system

The Industry–Academia Collaboration Curriculum Committee has been established to organize a series of lectures reflecting interactions between different research fields and future technology trends.

3. Industry–academia collaboration OJT system promoting advanced human resource development

RA system within the consortium

We elucidate the responsibilities of people engaged in industry-academia collaborative research and aim to encourage graduate sudents / Centerpostdoctoral / young researchers to participate in industry-academia collaborative research by providing compensation.

RA System within OPERA Project

We are doing practical human resource development by adding students to industry-academic collaborative research aiming at creating innovative technologies that will become the core of new key industries as Research Assistant(RA).
