About Tokyo Tech

School of Engineering

School of Engineering Creating New Industries and Advancing Civilization

The School of Engineering comprises the Departments of Mechanical Engineering, Systems and Control Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Information and Communications Engineering, and Industrial Engineering and Economics. At both undergraduate and graduate levels, students learn engineering technologies that make people's lives richer and more pleasant, and engage in research activities that advance these technologies.

We believe that this will lead to the development of various advanced technologies in areas such as renewable energy and energy conserving technology that prevent global warming, and practical nursing-care and assistive robots that support aging societies and complement human capabilities.

Machine and human control based on the dynamics between brain functions and the body, and innovative interface devices and information networks that make use of the five senses are other such areas where advancement is anticipated. After all, engineering is a pillar that supports civilization by working towards a happier, healthier, safer society.

Why Study at the School of Engineering?

Study monozukuri — the building blocks of civilizations.

Study monozukuri — the building blocks of civilizations.

From assistive and IT devices that surround our daily lives to cutting-edge devices such as rockets used in space exploration and robots used in high-tech medicine, as well as the development of entire systems, production management, and corporate management, learn about the various aspects of monozukuri (manufacturing, the Japanese way) in a variety of fields, and how it builds civilizations.

Have fun. And become creative thinkers.

Have fun. And become creative thinkers.

Various training is provided for students to become creative thinkers while having fun. Each department runs Creativity Development Courses that challenge students to be creative. It encourages them to come up with bold ideas and put these ideas into practice. Reputable courses include the International Design Contest (a precursor to today's Robocon), Original Machine Design, and Elekiteru Contest.

Find a range of graduate majors that extend beyond disciplinary boundaries.

Interdisciplinary majors — Energy Science and Engineering, Engineering Sciences and Design, Human Centered Science and Biomedical Engineering, and Nuclear Engineering — that combine and are developed from various disciplines have been created to enable students to pursue engineering in a wide range of fields. After graduating from the Undergraduate Program, students can choose to continue their studies in any of these interdisciplinary graduate majors.

Featured Education and Research Activities

Global Scientists and Engineers Course

Global Scientists and Engineers Course

This course, available to undergraduate students, teaches advanced skills that will help graduates of the Undergraduate Program to perform advanced education and research activities in a Graduate Program. It prepares students to develop the necessary skills during their time in a Graduate Program to become individuals who will exhibit leadership around the world, including in developing nations.

It comprises the Global Awareness Program, English and Communication Program, International Cooperation Practice Grounded in Science and Technology Program, and Overseas Study or International Internship Program.

The Asia-Oceania Top University League on Engineering (AOTULE)

The Asia-Oceania Top University League on Engineering (AOTULE)

The Asia-Oceania Top University League on Engineering (AOTULE) is a university league established for the purpose of promoting multilateral exchange between 12 leading engineering universities in Asia and Oceania. Its activities include international student conferences, workshops held at Tokyo Tech as well as various other regions in Asia and Oceania, and overseas placements to conduct research.

Summer Exchange Research Program (SERP)

Summer Exchange Research Program (SERP)

Support is provided for students to study abroad for two to three months at partner universities based on school-to-school agreements in engineering fields.Current partner universities include University of Wisconsin–Madison; University of California, Santa Barbara; University of Cambridge; Imperial College London; University of Oxford; University of Warwick; University of Southampton; Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC, University of Paris VI); RWTH Aachen University; and Technical University of Madrid (UPM).

Practical English for Scientists and Engineers

Practical English for Scientists and Engineers

To cultivate scientists and engineers who will lead the global society, the Practical English for Scientists and Engineers course, which aims to improve practical English communication skills, is offered to undergraduates. Advanced practical English for a variety of situations encountered by engineers and scientists, such as presentations, debates, listening, and technical writing, is taught in small classes to improve overall communication skills.

Four Universities Engineering School Human Resources Exchange Program

Four Universities Engineering School Human Resources Exchange Program

Hokkaido University, Nagoya University, Osaka University, and Tokyo Tech operate an Engineering School Human Resources Exchange Program that aims to develop the talent of faculty members who have the potential to become leaders in research, education, and administration.

Through mutual exchange of talent, participants experience the different organizational and operational structures of other institutions, and learn new education, research, and management methodologies.

While sharing knowledge and going forward with partner universities, the program also places emphasis on cultivating leading academics with broad perspectives who can flourish in any institution.
