In an increasingly complex contemporary society, people who master not just a single field, but are able to look at things from a range of angles are increasingly in demand. At Kyoto Institute of Technology, the academic fields of science, engineering, architecture and design co-exist in a single faculty. We believe that, in this day and age, rigid departmental boundaries limit new innovation. Organic collaboration that transcends the separation of academic disciplines nurtures creativity. This comes from encounters with a diverse range of experts. Further, while we continue to hold great store in the local traditions of Kyoto, we are also conducting practical research that is encouraging collaboration with research institutions around the world. Some KIT projects that showcase the kinds of innovation that typically arise from interdisciplinary collaboration are featured below.
