About Tokyo Tech
Tokyo Institute of Technology was selected as a Designated National University Corporation by Japan's Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) on March 20, 2018. Aiming to create innovation and boost the level of education and research at Japan's universities, the Designated National University Corporation system includes Japanese national universities that are expected to produce world-leading education and research activities.
Tokyo Tech's designated national university proposal, designed around recent reforms in education, research, and governance — our strengths — paves the way towards 2030 and the Institute's 150th anniversary.
By providing the public domain with outstanding human resources and knowledge through its education and research, and offering real solutions to societal issues, Tokyo Tech continues to fulfill its obligations as a national university. Additionally, by executing this proposal, the Institute aims to share its activities broadly and openly, strengthening collaboration with the public and contributing to the realization of a more prosperous future society.
Tokyo Tech has its initiatives set firmly in place. Join us in advancing towards 2030 and beyond.
The Institute's designated national university proposal consists of initiatives that aim to "pioneer a new era through continuous dialogue with society and the discovery of hidden possibilities in science and technology," and heighten the recognition of Tokyo Tech as one of the world's leading universities in science and technology.
Through its continuous efforts to promote various tangible initiatives in education, research, engagement, and governance, the Institute expects the five following organically linked outcomes to create profound societal impact in the wider community while propelling Tokyo Tech towards its goals.
