Message from the headmaster

Japan Electronics College Headmaster,

Toshikuni Koga

We train specialists to contribute to the world using advanced vocational education and career training techniques.

Japan Electronics College was founded in 1951 with the mindset of contributing to the world by training extremely creative craftsmen with a nucleus centering on the electronic arts. Since founding, we have sent approximately 110,000 graduates into the industries. We have striven to train specialists in the electronic fields, and in response to the needs of the industries, we now have 20 day programs and 4 night programs which train engineers and creators.

Our school's two pillars of education in training specialists are "vocational education" and "career training." With "vocational education," we provide a high level of specialization, drawing on our many years of experience in teaching to create original teaching materials, as well as provide training environments which are the same as professional work environments. We also work with business in the industries in developing our curricula. With "career training," we provide numerous opportunities to experience active learning through normal school life. We utilize group work and other projects to foster the personal skills which businesses require, including communication skills and dealing with assignments.

The students at this school come from varied backgrounds, and include fresh high school graduates, junior college graduates, and those with work experience. They study various subjects and go out into the world as specialists. We have received high marks from the “Vocational Training Specialist Course” accreditation program started by the Ministry of Education, Culture, sports, Science, and Technology in 2014, as well as from third-party accreditation organizations*. I want everyone to achieve their dreams with the help of the reliable and practical education our school provides.
