Q1. What is the advance qualification review in Application Requirements?
A1. An applicant who satisfies requirement 1)-6 described under Information Concerning Entrance Examination (e.g., a person who has graduated from a high school, junior college, or technical junior college) and an applicant who satisfies requirement 2) (e.g., a person who does not have the specified period of business experience) should contact the NIT MOT graduate school in advance and be interviewed to determine whether they qualify as applicants. After being judged as a qualified applicant, individuals submit a formal application (there is no need to pay the entrance examination fee before the qualification review).
Q2. What is emphasized in the Admission Office (AO)-style entrance examination?
A2. A strong will or high motivation to learn is the most important quality looked for in graduate students because they will face an intensive course of study in a short period of time (1 year) and must efficiently and systematically acquire knowledge and insight in the management of technology. Applicants should state their reason for applying and give their presentation so that their will and motivation are conveyed. Furthermore, during the interview, for example, an applicant for the Technology Management Course for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises is not required to have expert knowledge of technology management but should be prepared to answer questions that require basic technical knowledge, such as basic technical terminology (for example, to what extent can the applicant roughly understand the overall content of a relevant newspaper article).

School expenses

Q3. Is it possible to pay the tuition in installments?
A3. As a rule, it is not possible. For those who have special reasons, they could be consulted with our admission office beforehand.

Facilities and equipment

Q5. Are there any study rooms?

Q6. Should students bring their own PC for classes when needed?
A6. Yes, students should prepare their own PCs for classes.
Q7. How many books are kept at the school?
A7. Approximately 2,000 books are available at the Kanda campus and approximately 200,000 books are stored in the library at the NIT Miyashiro campus in Saitama Prefecture. The Kanda campus has a system for searching and requesting for books from the Miyashiro campus.


Q8. How many days a week should a student attend classes?
A8. There are various patterns to earn 34 credits within one year. For example, if a student attends classes on 2 weekdays and Saturday every week, 34 credits can be acquired in one year without overexertion.
Q9. What will happen to a student who cannot complete the course in one year? Should the student pay another whole year tuition?
A9. A student who cannot acquire the credits necessary for completing the master's course (34 credits) in one year can continue to study at the school for an additional one year. In this case, the student registration fee of 100,000 yen per year and the tuition of 50,000 yen per credit are borne by the student additionally. By completing the required credits within the additional one year and passing the final examination, the student can earn a master’s.
Q10. What are the requirements for completion?
A10. Attend the course for 1 year or more, complete the required credits (34 credits or more) by satisfying the predetermined requirements, and pass the final examination. The student is then deemed to have completed the course and will be awarded the master's degree in Management of Technology (professional).

Auditing program

Q11. Is it possible to attend other classes that I am interested in?
A11. Yes, it is possible under the system for credit auditors. In this system, a person who is not formally enrolled in any courses of the NIT MOT graduate school can attend the designated classes and receive credits. A registration fee of 30,000 yen and attendance fee of 60,000 yen per class are required. Credit auditor students may not only attend classes but may also use the study room for students and books, in the same manner as fully registered students, and have free access to faculty members.
