Founded by the Kanai Educational Institution in 1965, Fukui University of Technology (FUT) has produced a list of more than 27,000 alumni who have consistently made contributions in their professions. The heart of FUT's success resides in a team of outstanding faculty, staff, and administration members that is dedicated and committed to the students with FUT’s mission statement “all for the students”. Given the dramatic speed of becoming more and more borderless in the 21st century, FUT is committed to providing an international community of learners with relevant undergraduate and graduate programs where our diverse faculty strives to help students explore their possibilities, ideas, and perspectives to prepare them for their future careers. Students can pursue their interests in a variety of disciplines under the elaborate guidance of a professor whom they choose to work with. Our academic programs include a range of educational trainings that are practice-oriented and yet rooted in basic theory to help prepare students to succeed in their chosen careers. A characteristic feature of our curriculum is that it is designed for students to be able to develop innovative ways of thinking based on scientific theories rather than to be merely loaded with superficial knowledge. I am pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with you on the FUT campus.
