    The ultimate objective of this study is to supplement students' learning such that they develop the ability to organically detect and solve problems prior to entering companies or the wider society, with consideration for the achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs). This is because science, technology, engineering, and mathematic (STEM) at the level of higher education are prone to fragmentation and causing their disassociation from companies. This paper focuses on gender equality, a goal among the 17 SDGs, in which Japan's achievement level is staggeringly low compared to that of other countries. The objective of this study is for university students in STEM fields to attain skills that allow them to develop products and services which take into account issues that arise from gender differences. In this study, an active learning program for university students in STEM fields was designed and conducted. Through the program, students experienced the extent to which gender differences affect technologies and development in each STEM higher education subject, and uncovered methods towards preventing and resolving such issues for each subject. Based on the practical results obtained, we indicated the industries, society, and industrial circulative education necessary for obtaining the skills to attain the SDGs.
