The program committee will make decisions in the leading program. The program committee consists of faculty members from seven graduate school programs where RAs take their second major master degree, guides RAs and manages and/or operates the leading program. The board meeting is composed of members who have been at a managerial or higher position of renowned industries and government. As the board meeting has been organized between Keio University and industry/government, the meeting oversees an operation of the leading program. Invitation of more mentors from industry and government and collaborations with various industries will be important issues to be discussed in the near future.
In our program, graduate students are admitted each year as RAs from 13 graduate school programs of Keio University and take courses and participate in various activities of the core curriculum under the five-year MMD system. RAs and mentors as a part-time project professor from industries participate in discussions together and/or in a small group. In addition, project professors support the establishment of our waterhole and the smooth operation of the core curriculum, summer and winter camps and other activities.
