Cognavi, a Unique Matching System
Changing the Way Engineers are Hired

With the labor force population continuing to decrease, Japan is beginning to experience shortages in all kinds of human resources. This trend is also affecting the mechanical and electrical engineers who prop up the country’s manufacturing industries.

Japan currently has a working population of approximately 60 million people*. Within that number, there are 640,000 mechanical and electrical engineers**. That certainly means it is an occupation for one out of every one hundred persons. This in turn raises the problem of personnel hiring. An engineer shortage will make recruitment more difficult and increase costs.

Only someone who has completed coursework in the fields of science and technology can pursue a career as a mechanical or electrical engineer. Moreover, it is exceptionally difficult for persons who have specialized in other areas to work in this profession. Cognavi is here to support those types of engineers.

Cognavi owns a unique, never-seen-before matching system that uses AI(artificial intelligence) to automatically tie together the skills possessed by mechanical and electrical engineers, the studies of STEM graduates and the skills required by companies.

From job placement for new graduates, to career changes, engineer staffing, education, training and in-house personnel placement, Cognavi supports all career situations experienced by mechanical and electrical engineers.

Matching Using a Skill Tree and Technical Tree

A “tree” refers to a tree diagram. Cognavi visualizes the skills and learning possessed by engineers and the skills required by companies to a finely detailed level, like the branches and leaves that make up each respective tree. AI matches Skill Trees representing engineers with Technical Trees representing companies to dramatically expand both the possibilities for encounters beyond what engineers and companies have imagined, as well as opportunities that surpass business categories.
