KUAS at a glance

Kyoto University of Advanced Science (KUAS) can look back on a 50-year history as an accredited private educational institution in the academic heartland of Japan. To take the next step and challenge on the global scale, KUAS invited a top-notch CEO of a Kyoto-based globally successful firm as chairman, aiming to offer its academic resources in the international arena. The establishment of an innovative English-taught engineering program is one major example of these efforts, as KUAS continues to strengthen its commitment to being at the apex of modern education.
