History and features of the school


A college of technology is a five-year institution of higher education with a qualification for junior high school graduation, with the aim of teaching deeply specialized arts and cultivating the skills required for occupations. Asahikawa National College of Technology was founded in 1964 as the first national school of 64 technical colleges (55 national, 6 public, and 3 private) that were established nationwide. Since then, it has trained many practical engineers, contributed to the development of a wide range of fields in the domestic industry, and has received high praise.

However, in today's era of social and technological diversification and sophistication, in addition to the training of practical engineers, it is necessary to train highly creative R & D engineers. Is now available. In order to respond to such demands, a specialty course with a two-year study term was established in 1999, on top of the conventional five-year technical college education.

Characteristics of our school

100% employment rate, prestigious college of technology from companies

College graduates who have been trained and trained through 5 years of integrated education, and who have received high-level specialized education, are highly evaluated by companies in all aspects of personality, specialized knowledge, and manufacturing technology. The ratio of recruitment from companies remains at a high level. Of course, the employment rate of applicants is almost 100%.

I am confident of my achievement as a school going forward

What is surprisingly unknown is the size of the university transfer gate from the college of technology. About 40% of the students who go to university after graduation from our school. Asahikawa National College of Technology is the shortest way to university if you go to Hokkaido University and other science and engineering universities! It is even a prestigious school.

Department: Get the same bachelor's degree as a university graduate

In order to foster highly creative R & D engineers, there are two-year major courses (production system engineering, applied chemistry) over five years of the associate's degree.
An educational system linked to the Associate degree education enables continuous acquisition of specialized knowledge and skills.
A student who has completed a major can get the same bachelor's (engineering) degree as a graduate of the Faculty of Engineering of a university if he/she passes the examination by the University Evaluation and Degree Awarding Organization, and qualifies for the graduate school master's program. I can do it.

Blessed educational and research environment and light economic burden

The school offers a small number of students, with a capacity of 832 students (main course: 800, major: 32). The education is supported by a total of 109 staff members, 61 teachers and 48 administrative staff. Colleges of technology are national schools, with the quality of classrooms, training factories, physical education facilities and welfare facilities, tuition and dormitory fees.
