History and Organization
Komatsu University, founded in 2018 by Komatsu City, benefits from the copious natural assets of the area spanning from Mt. Hakusan to the Sea of Japan, and exploits the heritage of a city of industry, culture, health, education, and international understanding.
Komatsu University’s academic structure consists of three Faculties: Production Systems Engineering and Sciences, Health Sciences, and Intercultural Communication.
The former two faculties were established through the merger of Komatsu College, inaugurated in 1988, and Komatsu Nursing School, which opened in 1995. These three faculties are organized into four Departments: Production Systems Engineering and Sciences, Nursing, Clinical Engineering, and Intercultural Communication.
