Main Career Pathways

In addition to a wide range of employment opportunities, mainly in technical and engineering occupations in the manufacturing industry, students can also transfer to four-year universities.

What is a National Strategic Special Zone?

A National Strategic Special Zone is an initiative to comprehensively and intensively promote regulatory reforms from the perspective of strengthening the international competitiveness of industries, and promoting the formation of bases for international economic activities. The Major Course of Study has been publicly established and privatized (designated management corporation: Meijo University Educational Corporation) since April 2017, enabling education that specifically and promptly responds to trends and needs of production sites, in cooperation with companies and universities.


Students can take on the challenge of acquiring a variety of qualifications, such as technical proficiency tests (mechanical maintenance (mechanical and electrical), mechanical inspection, sequence control, ordinary lathe, CAD drafting, mechanical assembly and finishing, electronic device assembly), electrician, Microsoft Office Specialist, chief electrical engineer, hazardous materials handler, quality control, information processing engineer, industrial engineering, and English proficiency tests. You can take on the challenge of acquiring various certifications.

Comprehensive Training

Students acquire the qualities necessary to become leaders through a wide variety of lectures and classes to learn working manners, stress management skills, and communication skills.

Cultivation of Human Potential

As the saying goes, "Manufacturing is a way of making people," and this major focuses on teaching students how to improve their personal qualities, such as lifestyle, personal grooming, and greetings.

Fostering leaders in the field of production

As the first school in Japan to be designated as a National Strategic Special Zone, we provide next-generation education that cannot be found anywhere else.

Three Strengths of the Major Course
  1. Nation's leading practical training facilities
  2. Practical training by professionals in the manufacturing field
  3. Well-developed career paths
