  • The economic depression during the last decade of the 20th century caused various drastic changes in the social structure, including employment and educational systems. Japanese universities have devoted much effort to research activity and the development of teaching methodology for engineering education was not a major effort for professors. Decrease of 18 years old population, however, forced universities to change this attitude. University education is no more for only elite but is becoming very popular among young people. Another impact came from the 'globalization'of industrial societies such as establishment of WTO and APEC. Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE) was established to cope with both domestic and international problems in 1999, and JABEE was admitted as a full signatory member of the Washington Accord in 2005. The Professional Engineer Law was amended linked with JABEE. The importance of engineering ethics has been recognized with these social structure changes. Japanese Society for Engineering Education (JSEE) is contributing for reformation of Japanese engineering education through its activities including supporting JABEE. This paper describes the problems now Japanese engineering education is facing and the role of JSEE in order to reorganize the engineering education in Japan.

  • A new obligatory subject, Computer Programming IV, is organized in the Department of Informatics, Faculty of Engineering, Yamagata University. The purposes of the subject are as follows: (1) Attachment to each laboratory for bachelor thesis was usually at the initial stage of the student's fourth academic year. This subject actually moves up the attachment because students are tentatively attached to a laboratory for this subject. The interval to complete their bachelor thesis is extended by half a year. (2) In each laboratory, students cooperate with each other to complete their project. The project becomes capstone design which JABEE (Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education) is recently emphasizing. We not only explain the introduction of this subject, but also report some case studies.

  • The purpose of this study is to investigate and to display circumstances about importance issues connected with various publication data and engineering ethic principle. It is an investigation study about circumstance and actual conditions of engineering ethics education that is spoken by engineering ethics or engineer ethics on present Japan. Engineering ethics principle, or engineer ethics education is continued until present appearing in the 1980s by formal course of study in the case of American university. But, in the case of Japan, along with appearance of JABEE (Japanese Accreditation Board for engineering education), engineering ethics education for engineer is proceeded very intensively. At present, the purpose of engineering ethics education is heard on important engineering literary category so much so that can emphasize very as basic attitude to prepare everybody if it is a person who is to be an engineer. The present condition and circumstance of Japanese engineering ethics education analysis may become good information in the beginning step on ethics principle education of engineering our country.

  • This study was conducted to get the significant implications for the accreditation of engineering education in Korea from the case of Japan. We researched the terminology of 'accreditation', the outline, the current progress, and argument over the accreditation of engineering education in Japan. We suggested the seven implications for ABEEK. First, ABEEK has to use the engineering societies more in assessing the programs. Second, ABEEK should be flexible to meet the original goals. Third, ABEEK can use the observer system to train the examiners. Fourth, ABEEK needs to provide the real benefits to the students and accredited programs to encourage them to finish the accredited course. Fifth, the programs need to organize the committes in the direction that every faculty member can share the assessment results and execute the real course improvement. Sixth, ABEEK should permit the programs to use the curricular courses to check the achievement of program outcomes. And seventh, ABEEK needs to have meta-evaluation to exercise the reasonable authority.

  • Since Sheffer introduced the so-called Sheffer polynomials in 1939, the polynomials have been extensively investigated, applied and classified. In this paper, by using matrix algebra, specifically, some properties of Pascal and Wronskian matrices, we aim to present certain interesting identities involving the 2-variable truncated exponential based Sheffer polynomial sequences. Also, we use the main results to give some interesting identities involving so-called 2-variable truncated exponential based Miller-Lee type polynomials. Further, we remark that a number of different identities involving the above polynomial sequences can be derived by applying the method here to other combined generating functions.
