Bekka (Japanese language and culture course for overseas students)
As NAC accepts students from overseas, we prepared this course for students who wish to improve their Japanese language ability before entering Automotive Engineering Department / Motor Sports Engineering Department. In this course, students not only learn the Japanese language but also the cultural difference in order to adjust themselves to the new environment as well as some basic automotive technical words.
In lieu of the flourishing used car market and the desire for consumers to continue to drive cars for longer periods of time, the number of car owners in Japan is increasing on an annual basis. In the face of this increase, the number of mechanics is insufficient. The demand for maintenance industry is also on the rise.The needs of the industry involves from automobile maintenance and sales service specialists to highly skilled technologists with a wide range of skills and knowledge.
NAC has successfully framed an enriched curriculum ranging from automotive engineering theory to practical techniques and applications. Students now have even greater opportunities to work in various capacities within the automotive field with automobile makers and auto insurance companies by making use of their Class “2” Auto Mechanic Qualification.
