President’s Message

 National Institute of Technology, Gunma College is a higher educational institution that trains far-sighted engineers and offers them a place to gain a wealth of knowledge and advanced technical skills through a curriculum of continuing education (5 years of regular courses after graduating from junior high school and 2 years of advanced courses), consisting of general and specialized subjects.
 As of April 2016, there are a total of 57 technical colleges in Japan (51 national, 3 prefectural/municipal and 3 private colleges). National Institute of Technology, Gunma College was one of 12 national colleges founded in 1962 when Japan first introduced the system for technical colleges. A total of 7,853 students have graduated from the college’s regular courses and 765 students from the advanced courses.
 Departments at the college include Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Media Technology, Information and Computer Engineering, Chemistry and Materials Science and Civil Engineering. In each department, emphasis is placed upon experiments, practical training, and design and drawing as well as underlying theories, and also upon general education from the viewpoint of character building. While offering education in a liberal environment, the college provides guidance that emphasizes the spirit of self-sufficiency. The advanced courses include the Advanced Production Systems Engineering Course and the Advanced Environmental Engineering Course, and provide a higher level of academics that goes beyond what is offered during the basic five-year education in college.
 Our college boasts an almost 100% job placement rate every year for students who seek employment upon graduation after completing the regular and/or advanced courses. Many of those who wish to continue their education, enroll in the advanced courses following the regular curriculum, transfer to universities, or move on to graduate schools.
 As scientific technologies develop and globalization advances, it is becoming increasingly important to train creative and practical-minded engineers that exert their skills in a variety of settings. These people are expected to contribute to society by generating innovative ideas. With the goal of producing such future engineers, we will continue our efforts toward improving education, relevant research and action programs that contribute to the local community.
