Shizuoka Institute of Science and Technology (SIST) was established on April 4, 1991 in Fukuroi city in Shizuoka prefecture, which is located in central Honshu. Mt. Fuji is located just 30 minutes away.

The university has an enrolment of approximately 1500 students in two faculties: the Faculty of Science and Technology and the Faculty of Comprehensive Informatics. Brief summaries of course streams offered by each department are listed below.

Faculty of Science and Technology

Department of Mechanical Engineering (Degree:Bachelor of Engineering)
The department offers these programs:Robot and Vehicle Engineering Course,Aeronautical Engineering Course,Integrated Mechanical Engineering Course. In these three streams, students are given the knowledge and technological skills necessary to become mechanical engineers.
Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Degree:Bachelor of Engineering)
The department offers these programs:Optical Applications and Electronic Devices Course,Information and Communication Technology Course, Electronic Control and Electric Energy Course. In these three streams, students are taught the knowledge and technological skills necessary to become electrical or electronics engineers.
Department of Materials and Life Science (Degree:Bachelor of Science)
The Department of Materials and Life Science has two streams. In the Bio and Food Chemistry course, students study biochemistry and biology (molecular biology and microbiology). The New Environmental Materials course, based on science and physics, deals with new environmental and energy materials.

Department of Computer Science
(Degree:Bachelor of Informatics)
In the Department of Computer Science, students can take courses dealing with computer architecture, hardware, software, computer systems, data base systems and computer network design.
Department of Human-Computer Interface Design
(Degree:Bachelor of Informatics)
This department has three streams. In the Web Design course of study, with usability as a reference point, students are provided with the knowledge and technological skills necessary for designing webpages. In the Psychology and Life Sciences course of study, students study about ways to develop intelligent computers. In the Information and Society course of study, by learning about management, production, logistics, and sales, students are equipped with the skills for information management.

Graduate School (Master's Program)

There are two fields of study in SIST's graduate school.

Department of System Engineering
(Degree : Master of Science and Engineering or Master of Engineering and Management)
In the Department of System Engineering, students study about technology relating to mechanical engineering such as frequency, fluids and energy. In the electronics field, students learn about the application, evaluation and system design of electronic technology. In the information science field, students are taught how to improve high tech software that adapts to various computer architectures, how to improve the intelligence level of computers, and in the system control field, other fields are integrated and applied.
Department of Material Science
(Degree : Master of Science and Engineering or Master of Engineering and Management)
The Department of Material Science deals with solid-state physics and materials chemistry and their relationship to basic physics of magnetism, dielectrics and superfluidity, superconductivity and semiconductors, ceramics, high polymers, functional proteins and various materials. In the electronics materials field, the aim is to develop applications of studied principles as they pertain to certain devices, particularly electronic devices.

As SIST is located within the industrial and technological heartland of Japan, many of our students are employed by leading firms.
The university has reciprocal relationships with Daegu University in South Korea and Zhejiang Gongshang University in China. Every year the university accepts their students as well as sending its students there.
