Mission Statement

The remarkable strides made in Japanese science and technology over the last few decades have been accompanied by no less outstanding achievements by Japanese industry. The time has already arrived in which there is the need for a new approach to science and technology, one that can facilitate the formation of a positive, balanced, and supportive relationship between man's environment and the progress and needs of industry. This vital goal requires the training of a new generation of engineers, steeped in practical expertise and a creative approach to the tasks they are faced with. Nagaoka University of Technology was founded for the purpose of this important undertaking. As such, it is a university that places its greatest emphasis on graduate-level education.
