1) General Assembly, Board of Directors, Officers

In accordance with the rules on the operations of corporations prescribed by law, the EAJ organization is a body in which decision-making is conducted by the General Assembly formed of full members. The Board of Directers is made up of directors elected by the General Assembly, and in addition to carrying out decision-making on daily affairs, these directors elect officers including president, vice-presidents and an executive director. Auditors elected by the General Assembly represent the members by auditing the work of the Board of Directors and officers.

The substantive business of the academy is performed by the individual committees and divisions, but a secretariat exists to support administrative sides of activities.

2) Committees and Projects (FY 2014)

(Standing Committee)

Member Nominating Committee (Chair:Yoichiro Matsumoto)
Nominees to become new full members must be recommended by at least 3 members. Their academic and/or business achievements are examined and their eligibility for membership of the EAJ is assessed by the Member Nominating Committee, which then recommends eligible persons to the Board of Directors as new candidates for membership. Members of the Member Nominating Committee must also be approved by the Board of Directors.

Steering Committee (Chair: Hiroshi Komiyama)
The Steering Committee advises the Board of Directors on the organization, administration, finance, program priority and other important matters of the organization.

Committee on Technology Policy (Chai r:Mutsuhiro Arinobu)
The Committee on Technology Policy carries out activities to investigate policy matters generally related to engineering at large, such as legislation, science and technology policy, education and training of scientists and engineers, and the transfer of engineering and science knowledge. Results are then detailed to those involved, and disseminated to relevant parties as well as to general public.

Committee on International Affairs (Chair: Kotobu Nagai)
The Committee on International Affairs sets the policies for the academy's international cooperation, plans business, and is also responsible for activities and exchanges with overseas engineering academies particularly via association with the CAETS.

(Wrap up Stage)

Technological Literacy
Engineering and the Public
Sharing of Safety Knowledge
Where necessary, sub-committees and working groups are created in the committees and divisions for limited time periods to deal with important individual subjects. In the past 2 or 3 years, 5 to 10 groups have normally been concurrently active for periods of 1 to 2 years.

3) Lectures and conferences

Lectures, forums and conferences for members and occasionally open to public to exchange information are held from time to time on subjects of various engineering issues.
