Tokyo Tech's vision

Realizing a world-leading
science and technology university

Pioneering a new era through continuous dialogue with society
and the discovery of hidden possibilities in science and technology

3 objectives

  • Developing talented individuals who are motivated to work on a worldwide level, are open to various cultures, and have broad knowledge of science and technology
  • Taking on the role of a facilitator of science and technology that objectively provides knowledge to the public while co-designing a future vision with society
  • Contributing to the development of industry and the welfare of human beings by examining scientific principles and creating innovative technology while preserving the environment and promoting peace

This Action Package has been formulated to guide Tokyo Tech towards the achievement of its mission, objectives, and vision for the future.

Based on the mission, objectives, and the resulting vision of the Institute, this action package lists strategies for realizing the image, or vision, of a desired future of Tokyo Institute of Technology during the fourth mid-term objectives and mid-term plan period (fiscal years 2022-2027), and in the years that follow. Some of these strategies have been combined with the objective outlines presented by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), and have been approved as part of the Institute's mid-term plan by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. Other strategies will be implemented while reviewing their appropriateness through dialogue with Tokyo Tech faculty, staff, students, and other stakeholders, and while considering the progress of each initiative and its relationship to effectiveness and cost.

The strategies described in this action package include ambitious and challenging ones that go beyond the conventional boundaries of national university corporations. These strategies not only aim to set Tokyo Tech apart from other national university corporations, but are also viewed as necessary for the university to achieve world-leading standards and be recognized as having attained great heights globally. As a result, the Institute's appearance and positioning may deviate from those of other national university corporations in the near future. Tokyo Tech, however, is unafraid of change, for we see an alternate future.

This action package is a living document that is updated as required when Tokyo Tech adjusts its approaches.
