Professor Christin Ortiz is aiming to establish a non-profit university with a dormitory system, which is a new model university that learns based on research projects. Professor Ortiz said, "If the new university is established, there will be no distinction between students and graduates," and there is no concept of major subjects, lectures, classrooms, etc., and according to the research project-based learning style, It seems that you can omit the course of education.

Students at the new university can tackle both basic research and applied research based on ideas and prospects of their startups and focus on research until completion of the project regardless of past degree or grade after admission can do. Professor Ortiz aims at a fundamentally different learning model from the traditional "degree system", but on the other hand, I believe that I can acquire the same level of degree as online education. Although it is possible to respond flexibly without disturbing the student's project progress with a new system that has never existed yet, it has not been disclosed about specific learning methods and the like.
