The unique characteristic of KIT, the exploration of “Wisdom, Beauty and Technology,” has evolved over our 110 year history dating from the establishment of our predecessor institutions, Kyoto College of Technology and Kyoto College of Textile Fibers. This illustrious history now turns a new page, as we make the products of our research and education available to the world. Ensuring student mastery of technology through the creation of ethical and discerning feats of engineering, we target the harmonic integration of wisdom and beauty with intellect and sensibility.

Schools:

School of Science and Technology , Graduate School of Science and Technology

Our university is located in the Rakuhoku section of northern Kyoto, which has a history of 1,200 years. Surrounded on three sides by mountains, the area is abundant in murmuring streams of pure flowing water, canals, and a rich natural environment that one would not expect to find within a major city. A short trip will take you to historic places such as Kurama Temple, Kamigamo Shrine, Shimogamo Shrine and the Shugakuin Imperial Villa. The campus is also located near Kitayama Avenue, a chic area of boutiques and clothing shops. Students have easy access to cultural facilities such as a concert hall and botanical garden.
The river banks offer a beautiful view of Mt. Hiei. One might chat leisurely with friends during lunch, then stop in to visit a temple or shrine during the stroll home, indulging oneself in an atmosphere of history. In the evening, enjoy beautiful music at the concert hall. This rich lifestyle awaits students at Kyoto Institute of Technology.
