Vision and Challenge in KPCT (Kumamoto Prefectural College of Technology)

Our KPCT was established in 1997 by the Kumamoto Prefectural Government for the development of industry and to encourage social activaty in the Kumamoto area. Kumamoto Prefecture is located in the central area of the Kyushu Island, Japan.

To this end, KPCT trains practical engineers with both basic skills and advanced mechanical and computer engineering knowledge in manufacturing technology. Our college offers four two-year training courses: Two mechanical engineering courses, the first of which is focused on precision and production engineering and the second which focuses on mechanical systems engineering.  There is also two electronic information courses focused on electronic systems engineering and computer systems engineering.

The special feature of KPCT's practical engineering education is characterized by two-year intensive study, small size of the class, and hi-leveled teaching staff with qualified industrial expertise. Actually, our faculty members have various educational and vocational backgrounds and that 70% of tenured members hold a doctoral degree and 6 staff obtained the title of the Special Engineering Educator from JSEE (Japan Society of Engineering Education). These cutting edge education facilities are maintained by the support of Kumamoto Prefecture and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. Thus, our graduates are trained to have a solid foundation of practical engineering and knowledge to fulfill technical tasks in industrial fields.

Technological innovation has emerged as the key to overcome the current obstacles in the current economical situation. In the United States, the Green New Deal policy has been proposed and launched, which is an ambitious industrial policy to aim at boosting the global industries and employment while promoting countermeasures against global warming through  environment centered methods of utilizing natural solar energy and improving efficiency of electric cars. In this respect, the innovation of environmental technology as well as the education of practical engineers with an innovative mind should be indispensable.

To this end, KPCT makes an effort to attain our mission by educating the young students as practical engineers who will play important roles of bringing the innovation of technology and manufacturing skills into the industries of Kumamoto and Japan in near future.
