Tokyo University of Science

More than 130 years have passed since our founding as a pioneer in private-sector science education. Today, the Tokyo University of Science has developed into Japan's largest comprehensive science and technology university. During this period, the University has produced numerous graduates who have supported Japanese scientific and technological advancement. Furthermore, the University has adopted a new teaching principle for nurturing younger generations who will be responsible for the future, as follows: "Creating science and technology for nature, people and society and the harmonious development of all three." Our objective is to nurture science and technology professionals equipped with not only specialized knowledge, but also a well-rounded education and high ethical standards, as well as good character and international perspectives.

About

History

The Tokyo Academy of Physics, the forerunner of the Tokyo University of Science, was founded in 1881. At the time, there was a strong popular movement for democratic rights. In this climate, while teaching and research in the fields of politics, economics and law came to the fore, there was a tendency to downplay the importance of teaching and research in science.

Education

Nevertheless, the University's founders championed the founding principle of "Building a Better Future with Science", and advocated a movement of their own to promote science.

Efforts are also focused on laying the groundwork for pursuing internationally competitive research. In fact, many of our initiatives have been adopted by various programs of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. The Tokyo University of Science will continue to press on to earn high esteem internationally in terms of both teaching and research excellence.

Research

The Tokyo University of Science (TUS) has established a broad spectrum of research organizations to pursue science and develop new technologies. TUS is noted for its openness to multidisciplinary research, not only within its schools and departments, but also in its laboratories, institutes and research centers.

Career

Tokyo University of Science aims to train people who will play a role in a series of innovations in the technological development and commercialization process based on the our achievements in the scientific and technological research.
