Job replacement support
Tokyo Tech has decades-long experience of supporting students with job placement and career development. Faculty and administrative staff members of graduate and undergraduate departments provide students with detailed assistance, taking their respective research fields into consideration.
Even after the launch of the Innovator and Inventor Development Platform in 2013 to provide intensified career education, Tokyo Tech continues job-placement assistance on the basis of each undergraduate and graduate department. Note that as some employment information is specific to – and, therefore, only available at - certain departments, you are encouraged to pay a visit to your relevant advisor.
