American corporations are rapidly increasing their level of technical cooperation with Japanese firms. These corporations need professionals who can function effectively in a technical capacity with their Japanese counterparts. More engineers and engineering students are studying Japanese than ever before, but there are few opportunities to formalize that study in a way that will bring professional recognition.

A Unique Degree Program Delivered at a Distance

The Master of Engineering in Technical Japanese (METJ) is a unique opportunity to improve your ability to interact effectively with Japanese counterparts in the technical or business arena. METJ is the only program that delivers this content in a distance format, allowing you to earn your degree while continuing your work and career.

Apply Your Learning Immediately to Joint Development Projects

Technical information from Japan is obtained most efficiently and most rapidly by using Japanese sources. METJ courses focus on translating and understanding Japanese printed materials and stress technical vocabulary not found in courses that emphasize literature or conversation.
