The Hybrid Twinning Program is an international joint graduate level education program that cooperates (“twinning”) with partner universities in Southeast Asia and combines (“hybrid”) Master’s and Doctor’s programs.
Concretely, S.I.T. accepts students from prestigious engineering universities in Southeast Asian countries with which the Japanese government aims to enhance and strengthen its cultural, political, economic, and industrial relationships for the future.
Students from partner universities will be accepted to S.I.T. after the first year of their Master’s program. They will obtain a Master’s degree from both S.I.T. and their home university once they have completed their education with instruction in English. Furthermore, they will pursue their Doctor’s program at S.I.T. where English is also the language of instruction. (Doctor’s program candidates will be considered upon request from partner universities.)
