Maritime Technology and Maritime System Engineering Programs at Toyama College
Established in 1906, National Institute of Technology Toyama College is one of the maritime colleges Japan and located in Toyama. The College is comprised of four departments - two technological departments, the Department of Electronic Control Engineering and the Department of Computer Engineering and two other specialized departments, the Department of Maritime Technology and the Department of International Trade and Transport; the latter two departments are quite uncommon among the other 55 Colleges of Technology in Japan. Due to the academic curriculum and the location on the Sea of Japan, the emphasis is on social and international education.
The Marine Training and Research Center is located on the eastside of Toyama Shinko Port, which lies 4 kilometers from the school campus. It occupies 1650 sq. meters and has training and research facilities, including a wharf, training ships, an ocean observation room and boathouses. These are mainly used as practical training and researching for lessons related to ships and the sea. They are also used for some club activities, such as Yacht, Cutter and Boat Clubs. Extension lectures and marine events are held here in summer with local residents attending.
Note: Most of the programs are conducted in Japanese.
