Elements of the vision

Pillar of this initiative

Outline of contents

  • Interactive Student and Faculty Exchange
  • GIGAKU Techno Park leads sustainable support for innovation from Japanese companies and local industries at the strategic regions in academia, industry collaboration research.
  • Developing innovative globally- minded human resources using integrated global campus with collaboration between industry, academia, and government.
  • Construction of the structure guaranteed independently and sustainable development by funds from companies.

GIGAKU = Science of Technology

Natural Science represents scientific approach to natural phenomena. In contrast, GIGAKU represents scientific approach to technology. Basic philosophy of NUT is education to develop practical engineers based on GIGAKU and carry out the research and development aimed to industry innovation.

Promotion of GIGAKU Education

Mongolian University of Science and Technology

Nagaoka University of Technology has discussed the implementation of the twinning program of undergraduate schools with the Mongolian University of Science and Technology based on results of mutual exchange to prepare for the creation of an educational environment in Mongolia and for acceptance of these students into Japanese universities.

Mongolia has started GIGAKU education since September, 2014 by establishing the Mongolia and Japan Joint High School of Science and Technology (Mongolia Kosen) modeled after the education of Japanese high schools of science and technology.

Nagaoka University of Technology, operation Mongolian Office since March 2015, will work on extended cultivation of practical engineers on the campus of the Mongolian University of Science and Technology in collaboration with it.
