Study through 1 Department, 3 Fields and 8 Courses

A fulfilling flexible curriculum - from the deep to the broad

Engineering education used to be just mainly to deepen the professional knowledge. However, manufacturing work nowadays is done in a "project-type" or "task force-type" way by a group of technical experts from various fields. Companies are looking for people who have both potentials of "a technical expert with deep knowledge in their specialties" and "a technical expert with broad knowledge in various fields". For this reason, NIIT offers engineering education programs which encourage students to master deep expertness and gain broad knowledge.

Learning the basics of engineering

Students study engineering through a fundamental study program. Many elective subjects are offered and students can choose subjects that they are interested in. Liberal arts are also studied to acquire basic skills and a broad vision.

Learning in the chosen field

One field is chosen from the following three fields of engineering.

Mechanical, Material and Food Engineering

In this field, which focuses on manufacturing technology, students not only learn the latest technologies, but also acquire skills in developing and applying new materials and food products.

Intelligent Machine

The elements and constructions of robots and information–communication devices are studied. Students learn not only the skills for electrical-electronic information and mechanical control, but also acquire applied skills such as bioengineering.

Architecture and Urban Environment

This field aims to deepen knowledge of architecture and urban environment, such as housing and social infrastructure. Students learn technologies for creating safe and secure buildings as well as urban spaces in terms of functionality, disaster prevention, and environmental consideration.

Learning in the chosen course

The three fields are divided into eight specialized courses, and one course is chosen from the eight courses.

Advanced Manufacturing

To study automated processing technology, 3D creation, design technology, and maintenance technology which are required for designing and producing new equipment by utilizing the state-of-the-art technology. (e.g. Development & manufacturing engineers for equipment)

Material Science

To master practical knowledge on properties of various substances and their usage in order to develop new materials.(e.g. Production engineers for chemical products and materials)

Food Engineering

To learn how to process and preserve food efficiently without reducing functions such as nutrition and taste in order to improve diet.(e.g. Planner and development engineers for food industry)


To study automation control technology, robot engineering, and intelligent production system which are required for developing and controlling computer controlling equipment. (e.g. Machine control engineers, engineers for robotic technologies)

Information and Communication

To study information processing engineering, network engineering and computer engineering which are required for attaining seamless fusion of information and communication.(e.g. Computer engineers, programmers, network engineers, and engineers for electronic circuit designing)


To study human body functions and structures, medical and welfare support technology, and medical-use digital engineering which are required for attaining application of engineering technologies into medical and welfare industries. (e.g. Development and maintenance engineers for medical equipment, supporting equipment for physically disabled people)


To study architectural structures and materials, architectural planning and designing, and architectural environment and facility which are required for designing and building safe and comfortable architectural structures.(e.g. Qualified architects, construction work managers, construction facility engineers)

Urban Environment and Disaster Mitigation

To gain knowledge of environmental planning and evaluation, disaster prevention, and infrastructure development for the purpose of constructing secure and safe cities and buildings.(e.g. Construction consultants and managers, civil servants)

Learning the basics of engineering

By making use of the mastered skills and knowledge, students get employed by companies relating to their specialized fields. For students who wish to research further may move on to graduate school.
