Abstract : To meet the four major objectives of the JITMT Program, the University of Wisconsin: organized a project with several elements. First, tp prepare a significant number of engineering students to work with Japan, funding was provided to the EAGLE consortium of thirteen schools to support training in Japanese language and culture. Second, to reach technical managers in government laboratories, a series of seminars about Japanese technology, information, and management was developed for National Technological University (NTU). Finally, to serve both students and professionals the Wisconsin Technical Japanese Language Program was supported. Instruction in this program is available from Wisconsin directly, and through NTU.
