AbstractThough the world-wide academic and industrial circumstances have been changing very rapidly in the last decade, the university system has not well been responding to the changes of external and internal circumstances including students ’ recent demands. In order to proactively address this issue, the School of Engineering (SoE), the University of Tokyo (UT) recently established the Center for Innovation in Engineering Education (CIEE) for reconstructing engineering education and related activities. The ultimate goal of CIEE is to produce a variety of 21st century leaders with firm basic skills, global leadership capabilities, and the ability to consider broadly and creatively. We first explain UT’s unique education system, and then present an action principle and recent activities of ICEE such as education on the structuring of engineering knowledge, � creativity/innovative engineering education and education for global collaboration. Regarding the IT-aided education, the CIEE provides the MIMA Search system for students ’ self-guidance of curricula as a tool for producing a “tailor-made ” program, blended learning components, lecture archive, etc.
