Kyushu Institute of Technology

UniversityMember since 2011

Since the foundation of the Kyushu Institute of Technology, our fundamental principle has been “to instill a deep knowledge of science and engineering in high caliber students.” For more than 100 years, we have devoted ourselves to creating new technologies and industries, and to train “global engineers” with advanced technology in order to make them global leaders in their fields. The missions of all universities, as institutions of higher education, are education, research, and social responsibility. Since Kyutech became a Japanese National University Corporation in 2004, we have enhanced our activities to become a university with global standards built on impeccable quality.

Education at Kyutech is renowned both for our historic achievements in the advancement of industry and for a lot of programs selected by governments. Among these programs, our Initiatives for Attractive Education in Graduate Schools, Support Program for Contemporary Educational Needs, Progressive Education Program for IT Specialist Training, and University Education Internationalization Promotion Program are particularly highly evaluated. We constantly seek to improve our education programs to produce innovative students to lead in the 21st century.

Kyutech’s research programs are a special point of pride, and we have established strategic research centers as a world-leading technology hub. We pursue cutting-edge technologies and studies in the environmental, IT, aerospace, biotechnology, semiconductor, and mold & die fields. Kyutech has taken the initiative to nurture human resources for future generations through youth education, particularly through the Science Education Center and through the reeducation of highly skilled engineers.

Moreover, Kyutech can rightly claim its place as a preeminent university that has made major contributions to industry by actively working on industry- academia-government collaboration, the utilization of intellectual property, and international collaboration in research.
