Dr. Ken Sasaki informed that Hiroshima Kokusai Gakuin University’s educational goal is that, “the university is for the students, and we are here to educate them”. This stems from the founding spirit of “education is love”, and the educational principle of “trust, cooperation and practice”.
Their aim is to make their school “small but outstanding”. They offer an educational service that fits the students, carefully attending to their needs, until they find formal employment after graduation.
They continue their efforts in order to maintain the good reputation of their education. Especially, they focus on providing students with the skills to further develop themselves after graduation: “communicative ability”, “basic social manners”, “basic academic knowledge” and “health and physical fitness”. At the same time, emphasis is on an educational system that allows students to gain “specialized skill and knowledge” so that they will become key players in the local community.
They intend to further expand their collaborative network with local private companies, government offices and schools. At Hiroshima Kokusai Gakuin University, they have four departments: Engineering, Information Design, Contemporary Sociology and Automotive Engineering (Junior College). Under the spirit of “study hard, play hard”, they have a number of club activities that await student participation. The school will surely be the ideal place for students to become more sophisticated, humane and charming.
The graduate school of Engineering offers a Master’s course (2 years) and a Doctorate’s course (3 years) for those pursuing the skills to the leadership of enterprises and research institutes of excellence. The school has turned out many competent graduates highly skilled in research and development in the field of industrial technology, and possessing the qualities requisite for an educator.
The majors and subjects studied in the school include:
- ultra pure materials, electronic materials/elements, smart (functional) materials, structure materials/processing
Instrumentation and Control
- instrumentation engineering, control systems, information systems
Materials Science and Engineering
- materials science, materials engineering, biomaterials, mathematical engineering
Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- solid state electronics, surface and interface structure, quantum electronics, instrumentation engineering, computer engineering, energy conversion engineering, applied laser engineering, applied system engineering, applied instrumentation engineering, solid state physics
- material strength, thermo and fluid dynamics, instrumentation and control engineering, mechanical materials and processing, mechanical design engineering
Information and Knowledge Engineering
- basic information and knowledge engineering, applied information and knowledge engineering
Japan now offers Post Graduate and Research studies in English medium and the young Engineering Graduates from India can aspire to continue their higher education in Japanese Universities.
Japan offers excellent scope for research activities as they provide sophisticated laboratories and facilities for the students pursuing higher studies in Japan to do their research activities.
However, the students should have Japanese language skills when they go outside for their routine shopping and other activities to communicate.
Ms. Hiroko Nakano, Co-ordinator for Industry-Academia Collaboration, Hiroshima University informed that the students are placed in respective Industry to do their in-terns and this actually helps the students to understand the work environment and the demands from the Industry from the students. This helps the students doing a particular branch of study in the University to position them for the right type of employment by the time they complete their University education.
Mr. Tsuneyoshi Kurisu, Senior Staff, International Business Group, Corporate Investment Division, Commerce, Industry and Labor Bureau, Hiroshima Prefectural Government informed that they are facilitating for a discussion by the Japanese University and Industry representatives with the University students and Industry in India to have a bilateral relationship in the Education and Industry. The students by studying in Japanese University understand clearly the expectation of Japanese Industry standards and look forward to meeting their expectation in the field they choose.
