Cooperative Research and Development Center

地域共同テクノセンターCooperative Research and Development Center


 The Cooperative Research and Development Center was established in April 1st 2012, it was reorganized from the comprehensive technical education research center. The purpose of this center is engineer education for student in National Institute of Technology, Sasebo College(NIT, Sasebo College), and to support and promote cooperative researches between NIT, Sasebo College and other organizations including private enterprises in the local community (Northern Nagasaki). The Center consists of five divisions (marine development, biological environment, information processing, manufacturing measurement system and engineer reeducation) The Center contributes to the local area through collecting sources for research in cross-sectional fields, developing local enterprises through joint research projects or technical assistance, and promoting activities for educating the local citizens. The Center also helps develop the practical and creative engineers for the local community. All these activities are being carried on in coordination with Nishikyushu Techno Consortium.

  1. (1)海洋・エネルギー部門 Marine electronic device development and Energy application division
  2.  本部門では、海洋生態系に影響を与える船舶のバラスト水処理技術の開発やプラズマエネルギーのバイオ・医療分野への応用研究、機能性薄膜やナノ結晶の作製などの先端材料プロセスに関する研究や、海中ロボットの測位システムの開発を行っている。
     The division of research and development chiefly conducts "ship's ballast water treatment systems to preserve oceanic ecosystems", "development of plasma technology for bio-medical application" and "basic and applied research in plasma physics for advanced materials and processes, such as functional thin films and nanostructures".  Moreover, "positioning systems to observe directions of the underwater vehicles " have been developed.

  3. (2) 環境・生物部門 Environment and Biology Division
  4.  本部門では、長崎県の主要産業の一つである水産業と地域の環境関連事業に貢献するために、海洋生物環境の浄化や海洋微生物による有用物質の生産、及び光触媒などの環境浄化材料や環境浄化技術に関する共同研究、研究会、技術相談を積極的に行っている。
     The main aim of this division is, in collaboration with various private companies, to promote technological development concerning biotic environments and marine environments in particular, in order to contribute to the development of fisheries, the leading industry in Nagasaki Prefecture. At our college, the chemical and biological departments take charge of most of this research. One of the major outcomes is research into the construction of artificial habitats using carbon fiber. This is a joint research project with Sasebo Technological Advancement Cooperation.
