Kanazawa Institute of Technology (KIT) started an education reform for new century from 1995. After that, around 2007, based on “Comprehensive Learning Initiative Process” (CLIP), “Comprehensive Active Learning-type Education” (CAL-E) has been introduced. The CAL-E aims at training engineering students’ comprehensive abilities to nurture them becoming competent engineers for society. There are several class formats within CAL-E program, they are “presentation,” “discussion on a topic” and “practice and seminar.” Depending on the objective and role of subjects, the best type of CAL-E class format is conducted accordingly. In this paper, we use Fluid Mechanics classes as an example to demonstrate the effectiveness of CAL-E-oriented classes and examine its effect on students through a questionnaire.
