Reporting on Business Training: Industry, Academia, Banking Institution and Government Collaboration for Region-Based Human Resource Development Project
The students at the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Regional Studies (approximately 150) made presentations at Grand Vert GIZAN (Gifu City) on January 31, 2019 concerning their participation in the business training conducted as part of the Industry, Academia, Banking Institution and Government Collaboration for Region-Based Human Resource Development Project.
Through a partnership among Gifu Prefecture, the business community, academia and banking institutions, we have been carrying out the Business Training of Industry, Academia, Banking Institution and Government Collaboration for Region-Based Human Resource Development Project. Its major objectives are to secure, foster and retain highly-skilled professionals within Gifu Prefecture for sustainable regional development and growth. As part of this project, the Faculty of Engineering students who are studying mechanical engineering, formed small groups and attended the lectures, practical training offered by local enterprises for six months. In addition, 22 students at the Faculty of Regional Studies interviewed youths working for local companies as part of the Municipal Government Collaborative Internship of the Next-Generation Regional Leader Fostering Program promoted by the Center for Collaborative Study with Community. After interviewing, the students compiled reports detailing information on the companies they visited. On January 31, the students made presentations on their firsthand experiences and impressions about business operations in the private sector.
At the outset of the reporting, Professor Wang Zhigang, Vice President for Industry-Government-Academia Collaboration of Gifu University delivered an opening speech expressing his appreciation to the firms for providing the students with excellent training opportunities. "I believe those who observed cutting-edge technologies of local businesses and enterprises must be giving a serious thought to what they are studying for by now," said Mr. Tomohiko Okamoto, President of NABEYA, CO., LTD who spoke on behalf of the business representatives.
A total of 28 student groups gave presentations in turn (in the form of slide-show presentations), which was followed by a poster session in a different space at Grand Vert GIZAN. Each student group offered explanations to visitors on their activities before the posters of their own making. The following are the messages from the students: "I realized how challenging it is to give shape to certain ideas." "I had a chance to receive practical training outside my usual classwork at the university."
