Kyushu Institute of Technology

The Meiji College of Technology, a precursor to Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech), was founded and funded by Mr. Keiichiro Yasukawa, a noted businessman of the time. In the more than 100 years since its inauguration, Kyutech has produced over 60,000 talented engineers by practicing its founding principle of “instilling a deep knowledge of science and engineering in high caliber students.” 


The Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech) was originally founded as a private institution called the Meiji College of Technology (MCT) in 1907, in the northern area of the island of Kyushu in Japan, where Tobata Campus resides now.


More than half the students at Kyutech continue on to graduate school. This is a clear evidence that these students desire to acquire more advanced specialization. To back up that desire for continued education, Kyutech has prepared a curriculum that provides a smooth transition to its graduate school. (For example, applied versions of the classes that students take in the 4th year of their undergraduate studies are offered at the Graduate School.)
