Kirirom Institute of Technology (Kingdom of Cambodia・kampong speu province, president: Takeshi Izuka) also known as KIT, is accepting entrance of Japanese students from April 2018.

In the 21st century, technology has advanced dramatically and the requirement for “talented person wanted = person wanted by the society” is also changing exponentially. The number of engineers who can develop and make full use of AI, robot, AR, 3D printer, drone, VR and other latest technologies are in real short. Yet universities in Japan does not provide enough chances for the students to learn them. KIT, built in Cambodia’s Kirirom National Park, was built to attack and solve this national size problem. KIT provides world’s latest studying environment surrounded by nature. Currently, there are students from 1st year to 3rd year studying and involved in system design construction of entire vKirirom nature city such as resort development and college town development. As acquisition of English and IT skills by the Cambodian students has been confirmed, acceptance of the Japanese students was decided.

We are waiting for high school students, parents, educators who are seeking for the first step to change the world through their own skills from KIT.
