Academic Support CenterGeneral Technical CourseCollaborative Education Program Electronics and Information CourseEvery year, 240 students enter the Technical Department. Starting from their second year in the department, students are classied into the following four courses based on their wishes, suitability, and results.A study room that students can use during their free timeis available at the Center. Teachers also offer academiccounseling and provide suggestions about the mostsuitable study programs to pass the entranceexaminations for the universities of their choice. They canalso seek the help of the tutor who is permanently stationedat the center to efciently move forward in their studies.Through lessons and practical training in the classroom, students’ interest and understanding toward all science and technology subjects are enhanced, with the aim of helping them gain admission into specic faculties in science and engineering universities.Visits to partner universities and vocational technical institutes are organized for students who wish to pursue their studies at science and engineering universities. During these visits, they attend lectures conducted by professors, tour the research laboratories, and try their hands at experiments. This simulation experience plays an important role in raising the learning motivation of students. Through experiments and practical training that involve the use of optical communications/IC experimentation devices, the course aims to help students acquire fundamental knowledge and skills in the eld of electronics and information engineering. Mechanical Engineering CourseThrough various experiments, as well as practical training and guidance conducted at a building fully equipped with cutting-edge machine tools, the course aims to help students acquire fundamental theories and skills in a wide range of related elds.Architectural Design CourseA curriculum that is largely similar to that of the General Department has been prepared. In addition, through a curriculum that places special focus on the respective courses, students learn the spirit and skills of the “monozukuri” (manufacturing) that Japan takes pride in, and at the same time, aim to enter science and engineering universities or work in excellent advanced companies.Technical DepartmentCommon courses are conducted for all students in the Technical Department before they advance to the respective specialized courses, so that they may acquire fundamental knowledge. Foundations of Industrial Technology: Students study fundamental knowledge relating to machinery, electronic communications, and architectural design, and acquire basic skills.General Technical Course: Students acquire fundamental knowledge and skills that will enable them to actively utilize computers. Foundations of Industrial Mathematics: Students acquire fundamental knowledge and skills about mathematics and physics, which will be required in their respective specialized courses.General curriculum coursesStudents acquire fundamental knowledge and skills across all architectural disciplines. They also learn about subjects such as the environment and welfare, which are vital if they are to engage in urban development activities to create cities that are disaster-resilient, able to coexist with the environment, and provide enriched lives for their residents.
