In recognition of our various progress and initiative movement toward SDGs, NUT was proudly designated as the Hub for SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) from UNAI in August 2018 to share its best practices and experiences on respective activities to lead the world in society. Furthermore, NUT’s new program, “Global Pro-Active Root Technology Program”, was selected as “Doctoral Program for World-leading Innovative & Smart Education(WISE)” in 2018 by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). This program, as a prominent feature, aims at contributing to solution of SDGs by producing professionals with profound knowledge of fundamental technology, which is the basis of industries related to the intermix of materials science and power engineering.
