Thirty students who completed Tokyo Tech's leading graduate school programs were honored during a completion ceremony on Ookayama Campus on March 26, 2019.
In addition to acquiring a high level of expertise through their respective courses and graduate majors, these graduates demonstrated the exceptional aptitude, creativity, and vision required of global leaders in industry, academia, and government. During the ceremony, each participant received a special certificate highlighting his or her accomplishments. After congratulatory words from President Kazuya Masu, Provost and Executive Vice President for Institute Strategy Isao Satoh, and Executive Vice President for Education Tetsuya Mizumoto, the program participants were introduced individually. The ceremony ended with words from a representative graduate from each academy.
Members of the Tokyo Tech community — particularly faculty, mentors, and staff involved in the Institute's leading graduate school programs — look forward to seeing how the latest program graduates exercise their leadership and expertise on the world stage.
Tokyo Tech, in response to societal demands as well as those from industry, government, and academia, established four highly competitive programs and academies to cultivate skills in graduate students that would prepare them to become world leaders: Academy for Global Leadership, Academy for Co-creative Education of Environment and Energy Science, Education Academy of Computational Life Sciences, and Academy for Global Nuclear Safety and Security Agent.
These programs were supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and run under its Program for Leading Graduate Schools.
With the end of the MEXT funding period, three of the programs ended in AY 2017, and the fourth program, the Academy for Global Leadership, in AY 2018. However, their curricula continue to be offered as degree programs at the Institute.
