Kyushu Institute of Technology (KIT, Japan)

The Kyushu Institute of Technology (KIT) was founded in 1907 as a private institution (Meiji College of Technology), in 1949 it became a national University and was renamed KIT. The Faculty of Computer Science and Systems Engineering (1986, Iizuka Campus) and Graduate School of Life Science and Systems Engineering (2001, Wakamatsu Campus) were founded in addition to the already established Faculty of Engineering.It is organized in 22 Departments and it has many research centers, funded projects and awards.
Research at KIT covers many field of knowledge, e.g. material Science, Solar energy conversion research center for development of semiconductor with highest level of nanotechnologies. The most important research topics of the institute regard the development of functionalized carbon nitride materials for boost non-sacrificial photocatalytic hydrogen peroxide production and in-situ spectroscopic analysis of photocatalytic reaction over semiconductor materials.
