Admission Policy of the Faculty of Engineering
Engineering is a discipline which aims at making “something useful” for the people’s life, safety, health and welfare, creating a “comfortable environment” and contributing to society through “craftsmanship, manufacturing and systems building” in industry and other sectors using various knowledge and technology based on science and mathematics. To summarize the engineering which Kitami Institute of Technology aims at in one phrase, it is “technology that harmonizes with nature”, i.e., “environmentally friendly engineering” which harnesses limited resources effectively without wasting resources and destroying the environment. “Environmentally friendly engineering” is an attractive still unknown field in need of cutting-edge technology. In order to cultivate engineers who can play an active part in such a field, the Faculty of Engineering is seeking people who have the following qualities and abilities:
1. People with an “engineering mind”, trying to acquire engineering knowledge and technologies by applying the basics of science and mathematics
2. People with the “desire to learn”, willing to learn continuously, not only focusing on engineering, but also on the knowledge necessary for improving humanity, such as improving communication skills to properly express own thoughts and ideas, knowledge on the cognition of the social background of engineering as well as knowledge as a member of society
3. People with “curiosity”, determined to challenge new and unknown fields with their basic knowledge of engineering
The curriculum consists of Common course studies and Major course studies. Classes meet once a week and last 90 minutes. There is a 10-minutes interval between classes. Students must complete 15 weeks of study and pass exams for each course to receive credits. Classes are held every day from Monday to Friday.
The number of credits required per year varies by department. The total number of credits for graduation is about 130.
Select a field of study when you apply.
Then choose a department for the 2nd year, a course for the 3rd year.
The perspective students will choose one of the three studies when they apply: Study of Mechanical, Civil and Environmental Engineering / Study of Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering / Study of Biotechnology, Environmental Chemistry and Materials.
The first-year students will study general subjects and basic subjects in engineering and in their study field of choice. As the student goes on to the second year, he/she will choose a department. In the third year, he/she will choose one of the courses for more specialized study.
Students in all the departments can choose the engineering management course. This course is open to all the departments, with the limit of 20 students.
