Tokyo Institute of Technology

History

Tokyo Tech's history spans more than 130 years. Tokyo Tech originated as the Tokyo Vocational School in 1881, survived the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 and the ensuing campus move from Kuramae to Ookayama in 1924, saw the change of status to a degree conferring university in 1929, and continues from the present day into the future.

Education

The need for science and technology universities in the 21st century is paramount. Society is experiencing many problems -- the environment, energy, food supplies, water, aging populations, medicine and nursing care, disaster prevention, etc. Science and technology must contribute to the solution of these problems, and it is our role to show the way.

However, these global issues cannot be solved by simply pursuing one's expertise in science and technology. The solution requires talented individuals who have acquired a liberal arts education and the skills to communicate with people from other cultures.

Research

Tokyo Tech is working to promote world-class research by encouraging international collaborative projects and building an international research environment. The Institute is actively involved in collaborations with the world's top universities and research institutes, sending Tokyo Tech researchers overseas and welcoming international researchers to the Institute.

Career

Tokyo Tech has a proud history of supporting students' employment and career development For decades, faculty members and administrative staff in each graduate and undergraduate department have provided detailed advice on employment that makes the most of students' respective fields of expertise. Moreover, laboratory supervisors offer career guidance to suit each student's personality and aspirations.
