Abstract

In this research, a comparative study was done on the product design curriculums from nine sample Japanese national and public universities. Through the findings, some key characteristics were observed. Firstly, ‘Integrative’ subjects were gradually offered in the product design curriculum in the 1980s with an increased in numbers in the 1990s. But the emphasis of ‘integrative’ subjects differed among the sample universities. Secondly, the sample universities differed in the emphasis in offering diversity and flexibility in the study of professional education subjects. Thirdly, industrial experience was not emphasis for students to transit from school to work.
