Kanazawa Institute of Technology (KIT)
Now that science and technology have become diversified, and it is difficult to predict what will happen in the future, there is a demand for personnel with a talent for “technical innovation” that will enable Japan to continue to develop as a world leader in science and technology.
In response to this societal demand, KIT provides education based on our policies of “Ideal character building”, “Further technical innovation” and “Superb academic-industrial cooperation” to produce engineers who have strength both as human beings and as innovators, and who will think and act for themselves.
KIT is a place where students challenge themselves to develop technology that is useful for society through understanding other’s standpoints, collaborating and testing their ingenuity. Its most characteristic feature is project-based practical education referred to as “Project design education.” This type of education allows students to identify problems of social value and explore measures to solve them.
Kanazawa Institute of Technology incorporates “Intergenerational, interdisciplinary and intercultural co-creation education” into our lessons, projects and research, which involve the participation of researchers, engineers, local residents and people from other countries.
Students study, research and carry out their projects with people of different generations, fields and cultures. They gain the following advantages:
The research skills to take on the challenges of the future
A combination of academic skills and human strength that creates overall competence
Readiness for a globalized societySee more
