Master of Engineering in Technical Japanese (METJ)

This flexible program improves your ability to interact effectively with Japanese counterparts in the technical or business arena. Courses focus on translating and understanding Japanese printed materials and stress technical vocabulary not found in courses that emphasize literature or conversation. You will learn to read (with the aid of a dictionary) Japanese technical documents and specifications, product manuals, brochures, patents and memos.

Strategies for reading are reinforced through regular assignments and feedback. Contact the Department of Engineering Professional Development for information.
