Masahisa Shinoda and Keita Nishioka

Abstract—Enhancement of students’ recognition for fundamental competency factors through extra-curricular project activities is introduced. Special ideas or tools should be required to success projects, since students are beginners for project activities. Therefore, achievement abilities are important to proceed with projects as well as a methodology of project management. To satisfy this requirement, an idea of “Fundamental Competencies for Working Person”, that was defined by the ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in Japan in 2007, is tried to apply into the project activities. A change of students’ recognition from the viewpoint of the above definition through the project activities are studied. The results of questionnaire at the end of the project term show that the students’ recognition for fundamental competency factors was improved by experiencing the project activities, and that they felt the importance of competency factors described in this definition.

Index Terms—Project management, project activity in university, fundamental competencies for working persons, extra-curricular program, systematization.
