Enhancing Tokyo Tech education and research quality

Tokyo Tech has more than 140 years of tradition in technical innovation and industrial cooperation, the driving force behind Japan's development. The Institute has produced outstanding leaders and excellent research results in the field of science and technology, so much so that an adage arose during the years Tokyo Tech was located in Kuramae in Taito City. "Wherever there's a chimney, there you will find someone from Kuramae," meaning that wherever there was a large-scale industrial complex, a graduate had been involved in its establishment.

Under the leadership of the president, faculty members and administrative and technical staff are united in enhancing the Institute's quality, Tokyo Tech Quality, which is the result of long-standing hands-on education based on advanced research. Tokyo Tech aims to become a global hub of knowledge and talent in science and technology and share Tokyo Tech Quality with the world.
