Confectionery Arts and Management Course
Capacity: 360 persons
Through two years of study, students will increase the precision of their techniques, and cultivate extensive knowledge and the sensibilities of a professional craftsperson.
The first year of study consists of training with regard to basic techniques. The second year of study involves selecting a genre to major in, further practicing techniques, and enhancing the quality of techniques. This course thus nurtures human resources who can work independently at the workplace while understanding matters and thinking from a scientific perspective, and incorporating their extensive practical training and the theories and cultural aspects that they have learned through their lessons.
* Attendance and grades during the first year, as well as many other factors are taken into consideration when deciding which specialization class the student can move on to for the second year.
