Nagaoka University of Technology
Nagaoka University of Technology (hereinafter referred to as “NUT”) has been established in 1976 under a new concept as an engineering university with an emphasis on its graduate school that conducts education and research directed at the development of practical technology.
NUT’s most important mission is to create new knowledge and technologies, and to cultivate individuals with the ability to produce original ideas. To fulfill this mission, NUT will continue to be a “university of ideas”, taking the fundamental philosophy of its education and research to be the cultivation of practical and creative abilities relating to GIGAKU (the “science of technologies”), heightening creative power. Under this approach with GIGAKU, NUT will serve as a world center of education and research and aims to become an indispensable university for both local and global communities, developing leading engineers equipped with the practical and creative abilities to undertake innovative creation and the ambition to help achieve a sustainable society.
