Abstract : To meet the objective of the JTTMI program, the University of Wisconsin Organized a project with several elements. First, to prepare a significant number of engineering students to work with Japan, funding was provide to the Eagle consortium of thirteen schools to support training in Japanese Language and Culture. Second, to Reach Managers in Government Laboratories, a series of seminars about Japanese technology, information, and management was developed for the 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. Between 1991 and 1996 the Eagle Summer Program provided training in Japan for 219 engineering students of these more than 120 have undertaken long-term internships in Japanese industry or universities. The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) has taken over administration of the Eagle Program to Develop a Nation-Wide Engineering Internship Program offering industrial experience in Japan.
