The Professional Training Program for International Agricultural Research will be established as a special course in the Master's Program in Agro-bioresources Science and Technology in August 2010. The aim of this program is human resource development through onthe- job training (OJT), especially by the collaborative internship at the international research institutes under CGIAR / IPGRI, oriented toward professionals with inter-disciplinary expertise on the advanced scientific fields of food, environment and bio-resources utilization. This program will be established based on the achievements in the special programs, "Sustainable Agricultural and Rural Development" established under the cooperation with JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) in August 2006 and "International Collaborative Expert Education Program for Sustainable Agricultural and Rural Development" established in December 2008.
The program is constructed for the development of leaders in Asia that work actively in food, environment and bio-resource related research and have a strong speciality with an international outlook through OJT at the international research institutes under CGIAR / IPGRI. Graduate students in this program can master the basis of advanced agricultural research from long-term internship at international agricultural research institutes and partner universities. Master's Program curriculum includes subjects developed under the collaboration with the partner universities in Asia, the Pacific and Africa, such as the "Overview of Agricultural Condition of Asian and African Countries" and "Concept of Sustainable Index". These two subjects are developed as e-Learning materials, and will be provided to the partner universities through the internet. It enables students of both Tsukuba and partner universities to learn these subjects from anywhere, anytime. This course shares subjects developed in collaboration with JICA, and partner universities including the preparatory and depth subjects. To complete the course, a total of 30 credits from various subjects mentioned above and the dissertation are required. Supervision for the master's thesis is conducted by the members of our Master's Program having appropriate experiences and research records, which will be helpful for the students to complete the master's course successfully.
