| The progress of Japanese post-war industry was so drastic that the demand
for technological experts highly educated has been increasing. Now in Japan,
we have three higher educational institutions; universities, junior colleges
and colleges of technology. The colleges of technology, which were established
in 1962, accept junior high school graduates so that they may enjoy more
time to progress their professional research. We educate those students
for five years to be researching or designing engineers who will contribute
to the development of industrial technologies.
In order to achieve our aims, we have our own unique academic programs
which are made up by combining those both for senior high schools and universities.Besides
our unique academic programs, we have a lot of educational facilities,
such as the library, the student center, the computer center, technologicalworkshops,
and various facilities for after-school activities in sports, cultures
With scientific technologies becoming highly advanced, a part of the school
education law was revised in April, 1991, and has been in force since July,1991.
Consequently, besides maintaining advanced points of the education system
of colleges of technology, new two-year faculty of advanced engineeringhas
been authorized by the National Institution for Academic Degrees. In April,
1992, the faculty of advanced engineering has been available to graduates
who wish to supplement or update their knowledge and research skills to
more precise and deeper extent in specialized areas.
