Features
Founded in 1956, Fukushima University is one of very few Japanese universities that incorporates a flexible academic structure which encourages intra-departmental study. We value the importance of integrated study, and recommend students to learn outside of their faculties they are assigned to. We also merge together various fields of research, and hope to contribute to the birth of new and innovative fields and methodologies of research, business, academics, and technology.
