Practical Engineers are born here at NIT, and you can see why
Engineers who are to become project leaders at production sites in the 21st century have many opportunities ahead of them. Here, students learn Engineering theories along with practical skills. “Practical Engineering” will prove itself invaluable on the ground.
In order to become globally competitive engineers, they need to be educated with a broad range of knowledge, have language proficiency to nurture good relations and be accustomed to sports and health related activities to lead a healthy life. We provide many courses on the environment as one of our characteristics.
Intensive/Evolutionary Courses on Engineering
Broad knowledge acquired at regular high schools is advantageous in viewing the world. Those who studied specialized subjects at industrial high schools have a sensitive touch in the field of engineering. Here at NIT, we provide a curriculum based on the students’ academic history so that we may cultivate the students’ individuality.
Our whole campus is ISO 14001 certified, highlighting the fact that NIT is a university committed to environmental issues. We have en vironment related courses under liberal arts, and many other specialized courses as well. Students are also engaging in their own environmental activities. NIT is a “university where you can learn about the environment.”
Workshop Education is where students work planning, designing, manufacturing and constructing one product, such as a miniature lathe. In a span of 2 to 3 years, students who have completed their product using tools and machines will be given the title of “College Meister”. The experience gained here is noted as the first step to becoming future project leaders.
With engineering as an origin, students will learn mathematics, physics and English. Fusion Subjects are unique to NIT. For example, if a student is interested in American modern architecture, they can learn English through such a topic. This is the concept of “Fusion Subjects.” At this university 40 such subjects are offered, such as “Machinery English”, “Basics of Electricity from Physics” and “Basics of Computer Mathematics”. Additionally, N.I.T. has written textbooks specifically for some courses.
Soon after entering NIT, students will actually start practicing experiments, laboratory training and drawing while studying the basic knowledge and theories necessary for such experience. This effective and also revolutionary education where students can gain practical experience and specialized knowledge is what we call the “Dual System”.
When students reach their 3rd or 4th year, they become members of research groups to tackle their graduation research. Under the in-depth supervision of their academic supervisor, students will decide
on the topic, and then pursue experiments and investigations to complete their graduation thesis or designs. Here, the ability to detect problematic issues and find solutions is encouraged.
