About Joint Graduate School

Features of the Three Universities

Kyushu Institute of Technology (Kyutech)


A national engineering university with a one hundred year history. Based on our fundamental principle, “to instill a deep knowledge of science and engineering in high caliber students”, we set our goal to become “information sources to send out knowledge and culture”.

Affiliated Graduate Schools

Graduate School of Life Science and Systems Engineering (LSSE) (in Kitakyushu Science and Research Park)

The goal of LSSE is the application of superior constructions and functions of living organisms and the brain to engineering developing new fields of academic study, and fostering engineers who understand biology and information technologists who understand the brain.
