Re-Inventing Japan Project

In 2011 Tokyo Tech was awarded a Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) grant in the Re-Inventing Japan Project to establish and run two programs, the TKT CAMPUS Asia Consortium and the World-Class University Alliance for Educating Techno-Scientific Leaders. These two programs accept international students and dispatch Tokyo Tech students abroad with the aim of cultivating global techno-scientific leaders.

The TKT CAMPUS Asia Consortium is a research-oriented joint educational program with Tsinghua University in China and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in South Korea.

TASTE (Tokyo Tech Abroad Short-Term Education)

TASTE provides financial support to Tokyo Tech students who will participate in a summer intensive language program, such as STEP offered by the University of Washington, before beginning a mid- to long-term study abroad or research program through one of Tokyo Tech's exchange programs.
