Nagoya University

History

Nagoya University has a 144-year history, dating from when the Temporary Medical School/Public Hospital -- the forerunner of today's Nagoya University -- was established in 1871. The University became the last Imperial University of Japan in 1939, and the educational reforms in 1949 led to the beginning of Nagoya University under the new education system.

Education

Based on a tradition of open-mindedness that transcends existing boundaries, NU’ s academic culture encourages (1) the development of actual products via the application of technologies, (2) the design of practical systems and novel structures, and (3) the nurturing of young minds and original talents that will go on to establish new academic disciplines and global industries. Our overarching aim is to cultivate future leaders who are endowed with true courage and intellect.

Research

In order to pursue ethical research activities, Nagoya University set up the Responsible Person for Ethical Research and the Ethical Research Committee. Also, it laid down the measures to be taken when research misconduct occurs.Research misconduct means intentional figment, tampering, and fraudulent use in application, implementation, reporting, or examination of a research. Any person who suspects research dishonesty in Nagoya University may make the allegation regardless of whether the person is internal or external to the University.

Career

At the Career Services Office, students can freely browse career-related materials and publications and use computers connected to the Internet.
