Practice All-Around Liberal Arts Education in the Wilderness of Hokkaido, Build Rich Human Qualities and Enrich Basic Scholastic Ability
The educational, research philosophy of the Faculty of Industrial Science and Technology is "creating science and technology for nature, people and society and the harmonious development of both." The objective of this faculty is to contribute to the cultural development by carrying out educational research on the principles of science and engineering and their applications, together with general education, to cultivate promising people with good character and an abundance of applied skills. In aiming to achieve this, all-around liberal arts education is carried out for first-year students at the Oshamambe Campus in Hokkaido.
Through actual experiences in the wilderness and living together with other students based in a dormitory system, the faculty is promoting the enrichment and improvement of broad, fundamental scholastic abilities based on fostering rich human qualities and holding basic classes for science and mathematics according to ability level. In the specialized program for students in their second and subsequent years, students acquire a foundation and the ability to apply technology from a perspective that is not limited by conventional thinking, in order to support new academic segments. In such a way, cultivating human resources who have learned the latest knowledge as well as a wide range of scientific fundamentals and producing people with international perspectives who are successful in fused and interdisciplinary areas are the educational targets of this faculty.
