As part of International Project promoted by the National Institute of Technology, Ube Kosen has a goal that Vietnamese colleges understand and accept Kosen education, and we have been promoting the project as the leading school cooperating with Hakodate Kosen, Tsuruoka Kosen, Gifu Kosen and Ariake Kosen.
