Overseas expansion of educational networks

Since the opening of the university in April 2004, we have been aiming to become a global educational institution and have been actively promoting cooperation with overseas governments and educational institutions, and our network has been gradually expanding.We are developing a variety of initiatives to realize the world's highest level of IT education and to foster IT professionals with an international mindset.


Educational Support

Since 1989, the KCG Group has been supporting overseas computer education at the request of governments and universities in more than 20 countries. The content of the support covers a wide range of areas, such as the provision of on-site lectures by sending teachers, the creation of curriculums, and the construction of networks. Through these activities, a global educational network centered on the KCG has been formed.

Strong academic ties based in our New York office

Extensive partnerships with RIT and other academic networks with leading U.S. universities

In 1989, Kyoto Computer Gakuin (KCG), one of our group schools, established a satellite office in Boston, US, the birthplace of computer culture as the only Japanese information technology vocational school. It has been a base for overseas study for our students and a base for exchange with universities and research institutes in the United States.

With the opening of Boston Satellite, a strong network of professors and researchers has formed with several universities in the United States, including Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard University, Columbia University, and the University of Illinois. The results of these exchanges have contributed to the opening of new, cutting-edge KCG programs. In 1993, with the full support of RIT professors who boast top performance in the fields of CG and photographic engineering in the United States, the Department of Art and Information Science was established. In 1996, with the support of young researchers in the computer science department at MIT, the Department of Network Science was established.

In 2000, we moved our base to New York, and opened KCG New York Office in the World Trade Center Building in New York City as a new exchange base with RIT and other American universities.

Our New York office was damaged by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 in the United States, but we moved our office to the Rockefeller Center Building. From there, we continue our activities to further strengthen our academic network.

In August 2013, we invited the Dean of the School of Computer Science from Manhattan College to give a joint class on game programming. In October 2014, we signed an academic exchange agreement with the Metropolitan University, and are making efforts to build further networks in the United States.


Extensive partnerships with higher education institutions across China

Academic Network with Chinese Universities

Since its establishment in 2004, KCGI has been actively involved in exchanges with Chinese universities. In 2006, we concluded an academic exchange alliance with Tianjin University of Science and Technology. In 2000, it became a sister school of Kyoto Computer Gakuin (KCG), and a joint program, "Tianjin University of Science and Technology KCG Course" has been established in the university. In addition to providing opportunities for graduates of this course to further their education, we also actively promote exchange among faculty members through our partnership program.

Since then, we have concluded academic exchange agreements and joint education agreements with many Chinese institutions of higher education. In addition, since 2009, based on an exchange agreement, KCGI has been dispatching faculty to Fujian Normal University to conduct multimedia (especially anime)/network-related classes, and actively promoting exchange.


Developing research and education in the IT field in Asia

Academic exchange alliance between the Graduate School of Information Protection, Korea University and the National Jeju University

Exchanges with the Republic of Korea began in 2004 when we formed an academic exchange alliance with the Republic of Korea's No.1 graduate school for training information security professionals, the Graduate School of Information Protection, Korea University. As a leader in the IT fields of Japan and the Republic of Korea, we have contributed to the development of research and education in Asia by co-hosting a Japan-Korea Joint Seminar on Cheju Island, the Republic of Korea in 2005, and a Japan-ROK-Vietnam Joint Seminar in 2006. In addition, KCGI and National Jeju University concluded an academic exchange agreement. In 2008, a Japan-Korea cyber campus was realized with the support of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology's Cyber Campus Development Project, which allows students from both universities to exchange lectures on the Internet.In 2010, we signed a partnership agreement on a dual degree program, and it is expected that the two universities will further promote the exchange of education in the IT field.

In 2008, the school formed a partnership with Jeju Techno Park (Former Jeju Knowledge Industry Development Institute), and in 2009, it signed an agreement with Jeju International University (former Jeju University of Industry and Information) regarding a joint education project.
