OIT welcomes you with open arms.

We have a long and enduring tradition of international education. OIT attracts international students from the world in pursuit of engineering and scientific excellence as well as innovative intellectual property. Our commitment to international education will continue and we welcome your spirit of inquiry, creativity, and cultural diversity to our campus every year. We hope that you find a home on campus or on research laboratory. We hope to provide you with Japan immigration and intercultural support throughout your affiliation with OIT. See you soon in the wonderful city of Osaka.

About Us

For OIT to thrive in a globalized age, we have the International Center (Kokusai Kouryu Center) to promote international exchange. Our main duties are to coordinate the acceptance of exchange students and trainees from our partner institutions overseas and to send our students to study overseas. We also provide candidates a variety of information necessary for studying in Japan and assist daily lives during their stay.
