About Tokyo Tech
President, Tokyo Tech
On behalf of the Tokyo Tech community, I would like to extend a hearty welcome to you, Tokyo Tech's new students. Tokyo Tech is the best sci-tech university in Japan and aims to become one of the world's top 10 research universities. As a new Tokyo Tech student, take pride in being a member of this excellent community. You will first acquire basic academic skills in the fields of science and engineering. Building on that, you will specialize and then expand out from your expertise, developing interests in related fields and gaining broader insights in science and technology.
As you know, Tokyo was selected to host the 2020 Olympics and the Paralympics. In anticipation of this, Japan as a whole is internationalizing. I expect new students to be a part of this internationalization as well by proactively learning foreign languages and taking the opportunity to study abroad. The important things are your desire to improve yourself and to be proactive. You should contemplate your future. Then make the most of your time at Tokyo Tech in order to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to realize the future you envision for yourself. I look forward to seeing the remarkable growth of each of you at the Institute.
Putting on their biggest smiles, new students immediately wrote their feelings down upon receiving the results of the Tokyo Tech entrance examination. Expressions of joy, thanks, anticipation, and determination to work hard in the future were prevalent among the successful applicants.
A new life has started for these students. Their enthusiasm will accompany them through the next several years as they challenge themselves in their studies and research at Tokyo Tech.
