About the College of Industrial Technology
The College of Industrial Technology (CIT), Nihon University, began in 1965 when the School of Industrial Management became an independent college, separating from the College of Engineering (now the College of Science and Technology), which itself was founded in 1952. In the years since its establishment, CIT has consolidated its unique position as the technical college within the Nihon University system with the closest ties to industry, in both geographic and educational terms, employing this unique position in the training and development of engineering students from the perspective of human resource development. CIT has utilized this industry-linked educational philosophy to produce graduates who have acquired a strong commitment to safety and ethics, which allows them to thrive especially within sophisticated information-technologies environments as well as to strive to become top-flight engineers capable of building today’s state-of-the-art production systems.
