Education System

Home > About > Education System

Our educational policy is to educate students to develop, not only high levels of professional skills and knowledge, but also international ways of thinking and a strong sense of social responsibility.

In line with this policy, undergraduate courses consist of general education subjects, which cover an extensive range of knowledge in human, social, and natural sciences and specialized subjects, which cover professional knowledge in terms of both theory and application. The general education subjects are designed to provide students with general knowledge, sometimes complemented by more specialized knowledge in order to respond to rapidly changing social and student needs. The specialized subjects gear students toward their particular career choices in the future.

We adopt a semester system consisting of eight semesters over four years for undergraduate courses, and provide remedial teaching for students who have not studied subjects at high school that are essential for taking undergraduate courses. Moreover, we have a learning support center providing individually tailored educational guidance for high school curriculums given by tutors in mathematics, physics, and chemistry.

Continuing support for students to address their problems and concerns in all aspects of university life, especially in the orientation period, is provided.

We have credit transfer agreements with 34 private universities and junior colleges in Chiba, and the Open University of Japan. Another credit transfer agreement was concluded with the Faculty of Engineering of Chiba University. Under these agreements, CIT students are permitted to take some courses at other colleges and to count the credits obtained toward the number of credits required for graduation.

The Graduate School is designed for students to continue their studies in a consistent manner from undergraduate level, and to acquire deeper knowledge and more advanced engineering skills in their respective fields. In addition, we have established an agreement for joint cooperation in education and research with the National Institute for Materials Science and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology.
