The university has made international exchange agreements with several foreign universities, such as the Beijing University of Technology.
In the departments of civil and environmental engineering, systems life engineering, and biotechnology, there are project study programmes to deepen students’ technical knowledge and skill.
The department of integrated design engineering offers courses primarily at night for local working people’s continuing education.
The city of Maebashi is known as the City of Water, Greenery and Poetry. It lies at the base of the mountain Akagi, with the Tone River flowing through it, and has produced several modern poets, such as Sakutaro and Hagiwara.
