TCT + UCSD = Future Engineers

Tokuyama College of Technology (TCT) has formed a partnership with the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) to exchange students and teachers, according to asahi.com. TCT is a highly regarded 5-year technological college, while UCSD has a history of producing Nobel Prize-winning alumni. The tie up will take the form of joint research projects, student-exchange programs and UCSD professors will teach at TCT as visiting faculty and via online lectures from their home campus. TCT hopes the deal will lead to higher level research and improved English-language abilities among students. "We aim to raise engineers who can develop new technologies and compete in the world,'' TCT President Toru Amano said. "The partnership with UCSD will add to our momentum."
