Kyoto University of Advanced Science (KUAS) is an accredited four-year private university with approximately 3,600 students in Kyoto, Japan. It was founded in 1969.
In 2020, KUAS established the Faculty of Engineering where students can learn the most advanced technologies through a practical study program. At KUAS' Faculty of Engineering, students will be able to study a wide range of engineering fields and prepare themselves to compete on the global stage
Top-tier professionals who can create useful innovations for the future are in high demand all over the world. KUAS will provide its students with a professional and practical education to help them grow into leaders of innovation and ensure that they are capable of taking on the diverse challenges that society faces.
KUAS offers a trailblazing engineering curriculum that is taught entirely in English. Our graduates are linguistically and professionally prepared to work anywhere in the world.
KUAS provides all international students with intensive Japanese courses to help broaden their future career paths.
All engineering undergraduates at KUAS participate in a "Capstone Program" in which they tackle real-world engineering problems faced by major industry players. More than 50 companies from multiple industries cooperate with KUAS to provide our students with capstone themes.
KUAS provides students with comprehensive career support to assist them with job hunting and internships by leveraging our strong ties with the industries. Kyoto City itself hosts many of the world's top-performing technology and electronics companies, and provides a stimulating, unique environment for building a career.
Kyoto City is the cultural capital of Japan and home to thousands of beautiful shrines and temples as well as seventeen UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Kyoto is also the perfect city size to study, build local connections, and get a feel for life in Japan. That is why over 130,000 international students have chosen Kyoto.
The engineering programs at KUAS focus on mechanical, electrical, and mechatronics technologies. However, we also offer a high degree of flexibility and specialization. The faculty at KUAS specializes in a variety of subjects, allowing students to be exposed to a wide range of knowledge which is necessary to become professionally balanced engineers.
