  3. Doshisha University Elected to the T.I.M.E. Association Advisory Committee

Doshisha University Elected to the T.I.M.E. Association Advisory Committee

Updated Nov. 20, 2019
Doshisha University was elected as a member of the Advisory Committee of the T.I.M.E. (Top Industrial Managers for Europe) Association, which is a consortium of leading technical universities and engineering schools in Europe. The election took place at the General Assembly 2019 held from October 16 to 18, 2019, at Université Paris Saclathe and CentraleSupélec in France.

The T.I.M.E. Association is an international consortium established to develop competent global human resources in engineering by promoting efforts through cooperation among universities in Europe, including the Double Degree Program for Master’s and Doctoral Degree. Doshisha University has been a member of the T.I.M.E. Association since February 2015.
 The T.I.M.E. Association is run by an elected Advisory Committee representing 13 member institutions, which plays many roles, such as setting the future goal of the Association.
 The election of the Advisory Committee members is conducted at the annual General Assembly when the vacancy occurs due to the expiration of members’ term. At this year’s General Assembly, Doshisha University stood in the election, and was successfully elected as a member of the Committee. As the only one elected from among the universities in Asia this year, the university is expected to proactively participate, based on a different point of view, in the activities promoted by the organization constituted mainly by universities in Europe. We are determined to fulfill our duty to fully meet such expectations.
Meanwhile, at this year’s General Assembly, a proposal was presented to change the official name of T.I.M.E. to “Top International Managers in Engineering," and then approved. I believe that this decision represents the intent of T.I.M.E. to expand its activities not only in Europe but to the entire world. Considering the fact that Doshisha University was elected as a member of the Advisory Committee under these circumstances, the university is required to provide high quality efforts both inside and outside T.I.M.E. during its term (for six years until 2025). Accordingly, it is presumed that the university’s contribution to T.I.M.E. will become an issue drawing much attention.
 
As this year’s annual General Assembly marked the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the T.I.M.E. Association, an anniversary event was held concurrently. Meanwhile, this year’s event drew many more participants than usual because part of the event was co-hosted by CESAER, an organization founded in 1990, which incorporates 53 member universities of science and technology in Europe.
At the General Assembly held over three days, workshops were provided focusing on topics, such as the future development of the Erasmus Program, and the strategies for gathering international students. In addition, a joint symposium was held in collaboration with CESAER on the theme, “Novel approaches in S&T education and training tackling the challenges of the 21st Century.” At these programs, the participants actively exchanged opinions on subjects including the direction that education of science and technology should head for in the future. Furthermore, the International Study Fair was held for students of Université Paris Saclay and CentraleSupélec. At the Fair, about 30 universities of those attending the General Assembly presented a booth exhibition to introduce their universities. About 50 students visited the booth of Doshisha University, and we explained the Double Degree Program to them, and introduced the fields of study that the students can currently apply for and the outline of its laboratories.

Using the election to the Advisory Committee as momentum, Doshisha University plans to further promote its international exchange activities as part of its efforts to achieve one of the six visions specified in the university’s VISION 2025, ‘Further Enhancement of Internationalism.’
