The Advanced Course at our college is a continuation of the regular course curriculum, and aims to provide a highly professional education for our students’ future careers. Moreover, it strives to train independent, internationally minded engineers who have developmental and creative capabilities in their specialized fields and can see things from a complex point of view in order to solve problems. The Advanced Course consists of the Maritime Technology department-based“ Maritime System Major” and the Information Control and the Mechatronics-based “Production System Engineering Major”. Students who complete the requisite course credits are recognized as being equivalent to those who have finished 4 years of university education, and are awarded a bachelor’s degree in Maritime Technology or Engineering. After graduation, further research in a master’s course at another university, or the obtainment of a position in a company are possible future career paths.
