Since AY 2015, we have been implementing an educational training program which sends our faculty members to overseas universities or other educational institutions for an extended period for the purpose of promoting globalization of our curriculum and networking with overseas institutions. Faculty members who have participated in this program have enrolled international students from the university/institution to which they were sent, in KIT, or wrote joint papers with researchers at the university/institution they visited.
We are working on advancing the skills of our administrative staff to respond to the internationalization of their work and facilitate collaboration between faculty and administrative staff. We offer English learning programs enabling administrative staff to participate in actual conversational practice and an e-learning course to prepare them for the TOEIC test. We are working to establish a system through which, in 2023, 30 percent of administrative staff have a TOEIC score of 730 or more and are able to perform their duties smoothly in English.
○ Training programs
1. English training programs
2. Opportunities for administrative staff to work overseas
In the field of design, architecture, polymer fiber materials and green innovation, we have put in place an agreement with leading overseas universities to establish an academic unit program to invite their researchers to KIT. As part of this program, we offer opportunities for our faculty to hold workshops or academic seminars in collaboration with overseas researchers to learn about cutting-edge research results and trends.
