Welcome to (the Webpage of) Hachinohe Institute of Technology

10th President, Akira HASEGAWA

Hachinohe Institute of Technology was established in 1972, and has become in less than fifty years a prominent multi-departmental teaching and research institution in engineering and design, providing quality education in 'Tohoku' - the Northeast region of Japan. Among the private postgraduate-level program providers in the northernmost region of Tohoku, we solely offer the doctoral degree program in engineering (mechanical, electric and electronic, system and information, biotechnology, civil engineering, and architecture).

With a population of 230,000, the city of Hachinohe is a thriving industrial area known for fishery and manufacturing. It owes a lot to the well-managed port of Hachinohe, facing the Pacific Ocean. The city of Hachinohe is conveniently located in terms of transportation, too - three hours by shinkansen and one and a half hours by plane from Tokyo. Further, it enjoys the vicinity of a national park extending along the Sanriku coast from Hachinohe through Kesennuma, Miyagi, where you can enjoy breathtaking scenic beauty and outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, and BBQ. Why don't you come and touch seafood fresh from the ocean and feel the lively atmosphere at the port?

Whilst located at the northernmost tip of the main island of Japan, it has a mild climate, four seasons, and its own atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of a metropolis like Tokyo.

Hachinohe Institute of Technology is known for its high level of education excellence while, at the same time, we are tackling the tasks that lie in the region with our research-based expertise. Join us at Hachinohe Institute of Technology. We look forward to seeing you on campus.
