PBTS Observation (Every Fridays 14:00 – 15:00)

Prior to the selection examination in March for enrolling in the Minor Course of Science and Technology for Global Leaders, PBTS observation will be held.
Project Based Team Study (PBTS) modeled on applied research projects in industry is the core curriculum of our minor course, where students from various fields of specialization form teams and engage in research projects they create themselves. Students conduct all aspects of the research processes by themselves, including formulating research themes, and the management and development of their team’s research. Each team will conduct weekly meetings with Study Commons teachers that they select. Each team will also appoint advisers from both inside and outside of school. Through PBTS activities, students learn how to manage a project in cross-functional environment. PBTS is conducted in English.
