Partnership with Industrial Member Companies
TAC-MI adopts a unique system of “Partnership with Industrial Member Companies”. Advisers in partner companies provide TAC-MI with pieces of advice in education and event programs as well as they mentor TAC-MI students to enlarge their social views and to become multitalented human beings. On the other hand, industrial partner companies can make opportunities for their researchers to join lectures and exercises held by TAC-MI and can advance human resource education in material science and information science, consequently.
