Nagaoka University of Technology (NUT) has established global education system with cooperative global researches by GIGAKU TECHNOPARTK (GTP). Since 2015, NUT is placing more emphasis on globalization due to participation in Top Global University Project in Japan, supporting with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). The construction of GTP offices has been continued to be progressing higher engineering education with advanced skills through academia-company-government cooperation at Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Mexico, India, Mongolia, Spain and Rumania through 2015-2019. Especially, the GTP offices located in ASEAN and Mexico are important as the location of strategic areas for Japanese companies, where overseas business activities are expanding. So, efficient collaboration with oversea academia and the subsidiary becomes strong support of the business, especially in small medium enterprise by using the GTP network. Additionally, this project acetates globalization of academic-company in the strategic countries and support engineering educational programs with GIGAKU philosophy, strongly contributing the development of innovative technologies in their countries and finally reaching to producing global engineers with advanced technologies. This article overviews the currently progressing in the GTP network in the view points of educational programs and academia-company research collaboration.
