Characteristics of Technical Collage

   The purpose of our educational program is to improve students' basic knowledge and skills in technical fields so that they can respond flexibly and creatively to the exciting developments  in science and technology.


   Learning through experiences is highly-valued, and students are given ample opportunities  to carry out experiments and to apply the concepts studied in the classroom.
