Well-rounded Intellectual, Moral and Physical Education
Fukui National college of Technology is a national, advanced educational institution.
Here, we provide graduating junior high school students with five continuous years of technical education and nurture them onto creative and experienced research and development engineers.
Our education is practical, focusing on experimentation, practical training and simulations in five areas: mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, electronics and information engineering, chemistry and biology, and civil engineering.
One important feature of the College is that students take specialized classes, starting in their first year and the number of specialized classes increases each year as they progress through our “wedge-shaped” curriculum. Students are able to learn throughout the five years without the disruption of university entrance examination. Care has also been taken to address increasing globalization in our basic and foreign language classes.
Our curriculum aims to take students who are at an important stage of human development, and nurture them into sensitive and healthy engineers, who are full of creativity and curiosity, through an education balancing mind, body and spirit.
Although our students are awarded associate degrees upon graduation, we have also established the specialized, two-year advanced courses for students who desire more advanced scientific techniques and research. After completing this additional program, students are awarded a baccalaureate degree from the National Institution for Academic Degrees and Quality Enhancement of Higher Education. Students are also eligible to transfer to many universities with the third year standing.
The College places an emphasis on collaboration and cooperation with the local community. Based upon a “regional cooperation treaty” concluded with the local municipality, we are diligently promoting technical exchange and joint-research with regional industry through the “Advanced Research Center for Regional Cooperation” established in our college.
