Kyoto University of Advanced Sciences
Established in 1696 in Kyoto, Kyoto University of Advanced Science (KUAS), with over 50-year history, is an accredited private educational institution in the academic heartland of Japan. To take the next step and challenge on the global scale, in 2019, KUAS invited a top-notch CEO of a Kyoto-based globally successful firm as chairman, Mr. Shigenobu Nagamori, founder of Nidec Corporation, the No. 1 motor manufacture worldwide, aiming to offer its academic resources in the international arena. The establishment of this innovative English-taught engineering program is one major example of these efforts, as KUAS continues to strengthen its commitment to being at the apex of modern education.
