Message from President

President Tsutomu HASEGAWA

The world situation in which Japan finds itself is changing rapidly due to what is termed advanced globalization or inten- sified international competition. Furthermore, the country’s working-age demographic is expected to continue to decrease long-term. In order to come through this difficult situation, it is essential for society to produce progressive leaders with innovative approaches and perspectives. This includes contemporary engineers, who must also possess leadership and communication competence.

We believe that our college, with six departments, two advanced courses and three research and education centers on two campuses, can contribute to society through our education. Starting at age 15 our students pursue a five- or seven-year course of learning that prepares them to be highly practical and innovative engineers. In addition, to expand their aware- ness of the humanities and develop leadership qualities, they engage in a variety of extracurricular activities that are offered.

National Institute of Technology, Kumamoto College continues to evolve in order to meet the demands of modern Japan.
