Industry-University Cooperation, Shibaura Institute of Technology, Nikkan Kogyo Shinbun

Our company’s cooperation with Shibaura Institute of Technology Honorary Advisor Professor Okamoto was introduced in the Nikkan Kogyo Shinbun newspaper. Professor Okamoto is also an advisor to our company, and I am highly indebted to him privately and publicly since the beginning of the founding of our company. He was also our advisor in our development of ’32 axis simultaneous control device’ supported by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry’s Strategic Foundation Project (named SAPOIN), and his alumni machine tool makers officer also became our advisor, and as a result our development is completed successfully. I would like to offer my gratitude to all of them. Professor Okamoto is also tackling the problems of revitalizing private schools and he published a book called ‘What is going on in private universities – is it developing beyond growth or creeping towards collapse’, sharply questioning into private university management. This book is a very helpful even in the industrial world which is facing decreasing population and problems securing human resources. I recommend reading this book.
