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