To educate students to acquire fundamental faculties of natural science and techniques of their special fields and to be able to keep up with new technology which is getting higher and more various.
To educate students to be curious about phenomena around, especially nature, culture and histories related to the sea and to be able to consider and research them from various points of view.
To educate students to be interested in the cultures and societies of Japan and overseas and to have international perspective and high morality as a human being and as an engineer.
The sea’s abundant wealth furnishes our engineers with a rich sense of humanity and creativity.
Our college is located in the Seto Inland Sea, the thriving maritime heart of Japan and is the only higher education institution in the area.
The college is endowed with its own training ship, the Yuge Maru, an advantage not only for our Maritime Technology students but also for the students of other courses to experience hands-on training and conduct practical research.
This allows us to take an interdisciplinary approach that broadens our students’ outlook and emphasizes the practical application of skills in the real-life setting of the Yuge Maru.
We enjoy wrestling with the challenges presented by competing in, amongst others, the Robo-con, Pro-con and Solar-boar challenge contests.
We are especially proud of our achievements at the Pro-con contest where our record of nine wins is a record among National technical colleges.
Furthermore, at the METI sponsored event `Japanese monotsukuri` (craftsmanship) the Prime minister himself commended our prize-winning mobile-phone application `keitai koshien`.
Making their start in life in the engineering field our graduates possess the same level of opportunity as an undergraduate degree holder.
In the field of employment; our graduates may choose from opportunities in the maritime sector, industry for instance electronics makers as well as manufacturing, amongst others.
Companies that take on our graduates often commend us that their new employees are equal to university graduates.
Each year we receive more than 400 job offers from various employers allowing us to offer our graduates an almost 100% employment rate.
Due the 5 years of integrated education our students receive and the wide range of advanced skills and expertise knowledge they acquire it is possible for our graduates to join their chosen university degree course in its third year.
Our graduates who want to continue their high-level research activities at university often find that their skills are equivalent to 3rd and 4th year university students thus allowing them to profit from possessing a university degree.
The tuition fees for students who continue on to our advanced graduate courses are the same as the ones for the general courses allowing students a further two years of study after which they may go on to postgraduate study or seek excellent employment prospects.
For academic, economic or technical reasons about 30% of our graduates continue on to either national university courses or our Advanced Graduate Courses.
Our fully-equipped dormitories provide comfort and shelter for about 60% of our students enriching their school-life experience.
There are 3 dorms, Building A for female students (1 student per room), Building B for male first-year students (2 students per room) and Building C for the remaining male students (1 student per room).
Roll call is at 7.15am and 22.00 (at 21.30 for female students).
1st and 2nd grade students must self-study for 90 minutes on weekdays.
Each room has internet access which is free within the dormitory.
Our dormitory life is not just about having a well-ordered lifestyle.
Our students lives are enriched by the friendships they make there, the clubs and activities they participate in and the encouragement of the senior/junior relationships that will be vital to them later in life.
There are 17 various sports clubs, 11 culture clubs as well as 12 special interest
We are particularly proud of our traditions in yachting, rowing and rugby.
Of particular note, our yacht club placed fourth at the World Open Cup 2015 in Australia.
Culture club members can participate in various regional and national tournaments and festivals, for instance Robocon for the Robot Research club and Procon for the Micro Computer club amongst many others. The latter club was awarded the grand prize in 2015 by developing a navigation system for seamen with smartphones.
