It also has a comprehensive university library network, which holds a collection of 335,000 volumes, more than 2,000 foreign and Japanese periodicals, 14 online databases, and over 5,000 electronic journal titles.

Aichi Institute of Technology Research

AIT is one of the most active research institutions in the nation. It receives significant funding from public and private organizations such as the Aichi Prefectural Government, the Japan Research Career Information Network, and the Japan Science and Technology Agency.

Its top three research fields are materials science, computer science, and composite material. Aichi Institute of Technology researchers have also presented its outputs in global research conferences and symposiums such as MICCAI: Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention, CEIDP: Conference on Electrical Insulation and Dielectric Phenomena, and KES: International Conference on Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Information and Engineering Systems.

The university’s most cited research output is Yamamoto (2000) “Solid oxide fuel cells: Fundamental aspects and prospects,” which was published in Electrochimica Acta and has 1,156 citations to date. Its second most popular research work is Burdette et al.’s (2011) “STING is a direct innate immune sensor of cyclic di-GMP,” which was published in Nature and has been cited 1,131 times so far.

Meanwhile, AIT’s third most popular research work is Zhao et al.’s (2006) “Attenuation relations of strong ground motion in Japan using site classification based on predominant period.” This article, which talks about the spectral accentuation model for Japan and the strong ground-motion records until the 2003 Off Tokach main and aftershocks, was published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America and has been cited 747 times by students and research professionals worldwide.

In addition, there are also four Aichi Institute of Technology research centers and institutes on each of its campuses. These are the Research Institute for Industrial Technology, the Seismic Resistance Experiment Center, the Disaster Prevention Research Center, and the Eco-electric Power Research Center.
