Until now, graphic science education was mostly taken as the entrance of design and drawing education in the areas of architecture and machinery engineering. However in a highly advanced information society like ours, there are increasing demands for skills to graphically express complicated information in an easy-to-understand manner, and graphic science education needs to play this role in the future. Technical education to heighten such skills must be positioned as literacy education in the same way as language education and information processing education, and though students need to understand what is being taught and master the skills, what is more important would be to use those skills, and be aware of actually using them for other studies, research, and self-expression.
