Our Educational Philosophy

Our Educational Philosophy

'''Good engineers should be good citizens.'''

Our Educational Policies

1
Since the establishment of our school, in order to implement the philosophy of ''Good engineers should be good citizens,'' we have aimed to provide an academically, spiritually, and physically well-balanced education.
2
In striving to be an educational institution that nurtures practicing engineers who are humane, innovative, and creative, we train engineers to successfully approach the on-going advances and internationalization of science and technology.
3
We operate this school in close cooperation with the local community to meet the needs of society through the education of students who will be valued and relied upon by those around them.

Our Admission Policies

National Institute of Technology (KOSEN), Nagano College seeks students who:
(1)
Are interested in science and technology, and have mastered basic learning skills;
(2)
Are willing to be actively engaged in studying as well as in sporting activities;
(3)
Like to conceptualize new products and realize their manufacturing;
(4)
Are sincere, responsible, and patient, and able to communicate well with others;
(5)
Are determined to serve society with the knowledge they have acquired about science and technology.

Our Leaning and Educational Aims

(A)
We train students to understand politics, economies, industries, and cultures around the world; to be able to debate the roles they play in our society; and to behave in accordance with various international situations. Our training produces the following outcomes:
(A-1)
Students are able to understand and describe issues in both the social and human science fields that they are interested in. They are also able to describe the relationship between themselves and others.
(A-2)
Students are able to understand and express their own opinions on what constitutes physical and mental growth.
(技術者倫理)
(B)
We train students to take an interest in natural environmental and social problems, and to develop the capability to describe what roles and responsibilities engineers should have. Our training produces the following outcomes:
(B-1)
Students are able to understand the accomplishments engineers have achieved in our society and describe the effects various technologies have had on our society.
(B-2)
Students are able to describe the roles and responsibilities that engineers should have toward problems in our environment and society.
(C)
We train students to gain mathematical or scientific knowledge required in the fields of fundamental engineering (mechanical, electrical and electronics, information, or civil engineering). We also train them to acquire and apply basic knowledge concerning informational technology.
(C-1)
We ensure that students reach the academic level required to pass the preliminary examination for professional engineers and are able to make use of their acquired knowledge.
(C-2)
We teach students the basic informational knowledge required in the fields of fundamental
engineering so that they are able to give presentations.
(D)
We train students to acquire and appropriately use scientific and technological knowledge required in the fields of fundamental engineering. Our training produces the following outcomes:
(D-1)
Students are able to describe the processes by which they solve problems on the preliminary examination for professional engineers.
(D-2)
Students are able to apply acquired knowledge for problem solving.
(D-3)
Students are able to make use of scientific and technological knowledge in the fields of fundamental engineering in combination with the knowledge that have been acquired in other engineering fields.
(E)
We train students to use their knowledge of science, technology, and information, in addition to
that of fundamental engineering, so that they are able to use their practical knowledge and skills
as engineers to identify and solve problems. Our training produces the following outcomes:
(E-1)
Students are able to collect information concerning science, technology, engineering, and intellectual property, and apply it for the purpose of problem solving.
(E-2)
Students are able to make use of their acquired knowledge and estimate their achieved results.
(F)
We train students to describe concrete themes and engage in debate about them. Our training produces the following outcomes:
(F-1)
Students are able to make presentations and, hold debates as well as describe the concepts they have learned both verbally and visually.
(F-2)
Students are able to describe what they have learned in the fields of fundamental engineering and communicate it in English.
(G)
We train students to identify problems and acquire the ability to conduct necessary steps to cope with them independently, successively, and systematically on the basis of their acquired knowledge. Our training produces the following outcomes:
(G-1)
Students are able to learn independently and successively and present results.
(G-2)
Students are able to perform practical tasks, making use of the knowledge that they acquired during internships and in other learning experiences.
