Information Research Center

The Information Research Center has servers for networking, as well as personal computers for education. The center aims to give computer literacy, guidance for network etiquette and programming to 1st and 2nd grade students. In addition, it is available for computer-aided education and research activities for other (3rd to 5th) grade students and students enrolled in Advanced Engineering Courses. AII students are registered to the e-mail system, and they can freely use the well-organized network connected to the Internet.
When the computer room is not being used for class, it is open for students to use to encourage them to study by themselves. Computersat our campus are hooked up to the SINET and the Internet via high-speed LAN. The resources on our servers can be accessed via LAN/WAN 24 hours a day.

Snow and Ice Research Center
Nagaoka National College of Technology is located in a region known for its heavy snowfall in the winter. Engineers in areas prone to heavy snowfalls need to know the special technology used for dealing with these conditions as they pertain to traffic, utilities (water and gas), electricity and buildings. Snow is considered to be a valuable natural resource, so it is Important to investigate productive ways to us it. NNCT places special emphasis on educating engineers for work in these regions. Various experiments are conducted in this field of study, using temperatures as low as -30C
