GHRD Symposium 2014 "Emerging India and Japan" - Issues on the Science and Engineering Education -


Work opportunities for human resources with advanced levels of science and engineering knowledge are now expanding over not only the advanced countries but also the emerging countries across various fields. Needs for globally competitive professionals in Japan are also increasing. During this Symposium, selected development issues relating to Emerging India will be taken for discussion. Based on the experience of the selected speakers from both Japan and India, the current situation of education in the universities, "India Strategy" of Japanese companies, and strategies of science and engineering in India will be introduced by the Indian and Japanese speakers who have received cross-border experience in the other country. Prospects for the two nations in the fields of science and engineering also will be discussed during the symposium. It is expected that this symposium will highlight some useful messages relating to the carrier development of both the students and the professionals.
