UQ-JPIE The University of Queensland Japanese Program for Industry Experience


UQ-JPIE(University of Queensland – Japan Program for Industry Experience) program was started from 2017. It is an intensive 2-week program supported by the New Colombo Plan of the Australian government, designed to give selected Australian student engineers from the University of Queensland the opportunity to learn about the world-leading research and industries of Japan.

During this program, students attend seminars on cutting-edge engineering research at Kyushu University and visit some leading companies from Japanese industry, based in or with a large presence in the Kyushu area, such as Toyota Motors Kyushu and YASKAWA Electric Corporation. This gives the UQ students the opportunity to study about Japanese Business Culture and become familiar with the Kyushu area in general.
