Tokyo Tech-AYSEAS

Tokyo Tech-AYSEAS logo

Tokyo Tech-AYSEAS ("AYSEAS") is organized annually by Tokyo Tech and partner universities to bring together students from universities in Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, and Vietnam for a 10-day joint educational program hosted by a participating university in Southeast Asia. Through site visits, discussions, and group work with fellow participants from different backgrounds, AYSEAS participants learn about and experience the dynamism of rapidly growing ASEAN countries.


Aiming to enhance students' motivation to engage as members of global society, the program encourages students' interaction with peers from different national origins, languages, cultures, and academic fields. Through site visits to companies and public institutions, participants have opportunities to broaden not only their learning in their major field of study but also their understanding of the economy, culture, society, and international relations of the host country.
