The Kobe City College of Technology was founded as a unique type of higher level education institution in 1962. The College of Technology is called “KOSEN” in Japanese. “KOSEN” provides junior high school graduates with a 5-year program of study (fundamental course), by which they can attain the same educational level as engineering college students.
In 1998, advanced courses, which provide an additional 2-year program for graduates of the fundamental course, were established allowing students to earn a bachelor’s degree in engineering. The school campus has a bright and open atmosphere, with a square, a courtyard, modern school buildings and other facilities with a beautiful view of the surrounding area.
It has state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, including an IT Center, high tech electronic microscopes and language laboratory, a “Clean Room” and various renovated experiment and practical training rooms, which are used for education and research.
While we have some student exchange agreements with foreign universities and are working on making connections to a few US universities at the moment, we find that due to the lack of English language ability we can not send enough students to keep up a balanced exchange. Also at the moment we do not have dormitory facilities on campus where students can stay, so accommodations would need to be made such as a home stay or renting a room near the school. We are located in an area with many other universities nearby so it is a very clean, comfortable and convenient area for students to visit. We are looking for universities which might have some flexibility in figuring out alternative ways to maintain a balance.
