Educational Programs for Creative Technology System Engineering

Anan national College of Technology offers “Education Programs for Creative Technology System Engineering” for four years – from the 4th and 5th grades of the Fundamental Course to the 1st and 2nd grades of the Advanced Course. These programs target the engineering areas of : mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, systems and control engineering, and construction systems engineering. Our students acquire expertise in engineering as well as a broad range of knowledge in other subjects. Our faculty educates our student engineers with a pragmatic and creative teaching methodology to give them the skills they need for their futures as engineers.


Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education, or JABEE, is a nongovernmental organization established in 1999. JABEE examines and accredits engineering education programs in close cooperation with engineering associations and societies. 
JABEE evaluates whether engineering education program implemented by institutions of higher education, such as colleges of technology or universities reach the level society demands. This is   achieved by conducting an examination, the results of which are used to reach a formal accreditation decision.
JABEE accredited our “Educational Programs for Creative Technology System Engineering” in May 2005.Its accreditation became effective on April 1, 2004 and will expire in five years. This means that Anan National College of Technology is accepted as an institution of higher education that provides programs in engineering which meet international standards. Students who finish our programs will be accepted as international engineers with academic and technical skills. They are exempt from the first-stage test of a consulting engineer, which is one of the highly prestigious national credentials.

The Washington Accord and JABEE:

As Japanese engineers are active worldwide today, they need to have engineering qualifications which are recognized internationally. To meet those needs, JABEE was established, aiming to be a full member of the Washington Accord. The Washington Accord was signed in 1989. It is an agreement between the bodies responsible for accrediting professional engineering degree programs in each of the signatory countries. It recognizes the substantial equivalency of programs accredited by those bodies, and recommends that graduates of accepted programs in any of the signatory countries be recognized by the other countries as having met the academic requirements for entry into the practice of engineering. JABEE has begun to conduct the nation-wide examination among universities and colleges on a trial basis since 2000, and formally since 2002.

 JABEE and Engineering Education of our college:

At our college we made our engineering education program named The Education
Program of Creative Technological Systems to undergo JABEE’s examination
in the near future. The students from the 4th to the 5th grades in our
college are registered to take the program optionally, while the students
of the advanced course are all registered in the program.
