About KCCT

The Kobe City College of Technology was founded as a unique type of higher level education institution in 1962. The College of Technology is called “KOSEN” in Japanese. “KOSEN” provides junior high school graduates with a 5-year program of study (fundamental course), by which they can attain the same educational level as engineering college students.

In 1998, advanced courses, which provide an additional 2-year program for graduates of the fundamental course, were established allowing students to earn a bachelor's degree in engineering. The school campus has a bright and open atmosphere, with a square, a courtyard, modern school buildings and other facilities with a beautiful view of the surrounding area.

It has state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, including an IT Center, high tech electronic microscopes and language laboratory, a “Clean Room” and various renovated experiment and practical training rooms, which are used for education and research.

On April 1st, 2023, Kobe City College of Technology will transition to a public university corporation and will be operated in conjunction with Kobe City University of Foreign Studies.
