Training in Inter-Cultural Communication Helpful for Engineering Students

Teacher Insights

Teaching inter-cultural communication can help engineering students deal with people of diverse cultures without prejudice or judgement.
A research done by UTokyo pointed out  that any engineering activity requires international collaboration. Therefore, inter-cultural communication should be high on the agenda of engineering education. It would be better if engineers are trained about the cultural differences within their own countries and also taught similarities between different countries. This would create a constructivist view of culture.
With better inter-cultural communication many global projects would be better designed, executed and implemented, according to Yu Maemura, Department of Civil Engineering at University of Tokyo.
