Macroscopic statistical as well as microscopic sample analysis of Japanese Kosen (college of technology) graduates’ profession found that they are likely to be engineering professors one to three times as much as regular university’ s engineering school graduates. This fact could be accounted for by the higher rate of graduate school enrollment of the former compared to the latter. It then infers that Kosen education somehow cultivates, in their students, affinity to graduate study which mostly consists of scientific research in Japanese graduate schools. Possible reasons for this are enumerated and discussed, in terms of Kosen educational model that is quite unique in Japanese educational system.
