Hiroshima Institute of Technology

Hiroshima Institute of Technology (Faculty of Engineering) was established in 1963, building on the foundations put in place two years previously with the establishment of Hiroshima Technical College. Since then, the Graduate School of Engineering, the Faculty of Environmental Studies and the Graduate School of Environmental Studies have been founded. In tandem with reorganization and expansion of departments within both faculties and the development of specialized subjects within the Graduate School of Engineering, upwards of 40,000 students have graduated from H.I.T.
Furthermore, as of April 2012, this university is comprised of 4 faculties (the newly established Faculty of Life Sciences, the Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Applied Information Science, and the Faculty of Environmental Studies) and 12 departments. Bearing in mind the watchwords" society, environment and ethics," and prioritizing the development of a humane outlook alongside technology ability, the aim is to nurture professionals with specialized skills capable of contributing to the evolution of society in the 21st century.

Faculty of Engineering

How far can we take technology? The Faculty of Engineering consists of six departments: the Department of Electronics and Computer  Engineering; the Department of Electrical Systems Engineering; the Department of Mechanical Systems Engineering; the Department of Intelligent Mechanical Engineering; the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the Department of Architectural Engineering, each of which aims to nurture personnel who can contribute to the present day's "construction society."

Faculty of Applied Information Science

Information technology offers humankind limitless possibilities for growth. The Faculty of Applied Information Science consists of two departments: the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Information Systems and Management. The aim of this faculty is to foster well-educated personnel capable of contributing to the creation of an information-sophisticated society through practical use of specialized skills centered on information-related technology.

Faculty of Environmental Studies

The Faculty of Environmental Studies consists of two departments: the Department of Architectural Design and the Department of Global Environment Studies. The faculty aim is to utilize technology and environmental studies knowledge to create possibilities for a rich everyday lifestyle. Uniting the study of natural environment, human environment, and the social environment, the faculty aims to train professionals with a broad cultural outlook, a global perspective, and the desire and ability to contribute to a society that maintains the environment and lives in symbiosis with it.

Faculty of Life Sciences

The Faculty of Life Sciences is comprised of 2 departments: The Department of Clinical Engineering - applying engineering technology to the medical field & The Department of Food Sciences and Biotechnology - valuing life through food. Training highly specialized, humane and scholarly professionals with high employability due to a grounding in engineering, who can contribute to creating a healthy society.

Graduate School

The Graduate School of Science and Technology offers six majors at the master's degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Systems Engineering, Civil and Architectural Engineering, Information Systems and Science, Environmental Studies, and Biological and Biomedical Engineering. The doctoral program is the major of Intelligent Structure and functional Science consisting of interdisciplinary studies. These programs are open to working adults and foreign students.

Center for International Education

The Center for International Education of Hiroshima Institute of Technology engages in a variety of activities to promote academic and cultural exchange between HIT and overseas universities.
