About Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech)

Tokyo Tech’s three campuses — two in Japan’s clean, vibrant capital, and one in adjacent Yokohama — provide a comfortable setting for a truly unique study experience. The long-cherished practical science and engineering education for which the Institute is known allows all students to experience the pleasures of research from an early stage. Findings from research institutes such as ELSI are fed back into curricula, and as laboratory members, students are in close contact with the world’s top researchers. Tokyo Tech's DLab unites faculty and students with the public to seek answers for a better tomorrow. The Institute’s hands-on approach is reflected in graduate employability rankings, in which Tokyo Tech consistently excels.

Tokyo Tech provides full degree programs in English at all levels. The Global Scientists and Engineers Program (GSEP) is a transdisciplinary Bachelor of Engineering program, while the International Graduate Programs (IGP) cater to those hoping to pursue more advanced science or engineering degrees in Japan. Various scholarships are available.

Library

Tokyo Tech operates library branches on Ookayama and Suzukakedai Campuses, which house approximately 800,000 books and one of the largest international collections of science and engineering periodicals in the country. Both facilities include roomy individual and group study spaces, reading spaces, and lecture and meeting rooms. The Ookayama facility, a triangular glass structure that dominates the landscape, will connect directly to the new international exchange hub, to be completed in academic year 2020. 

Hisao & Hiroko Taki Plaza

Hisao & Hiroko Taki Plaza, a large international exchange hub opening in the heart of Ookayama Campus in academic year 2020, will offer students more space for group work, events, and other fun.

Makerspaces

Tokyo Tech students currently enjoy the freedom to create at two makerspaces: one on Ookayama Campus, the other on Suzukakedai Campus. Both facilities provide access to the latest cutting, shaping, drilling, printing, and other experimental tools and machines.

Supercomputer TSUBAME

Tokyo Tech’s Global Scientific Information and Computing Center operates TSUBAME supercomputer which is available for use by all Tokyo Tech students and researchers.

Environmental Energy Innovation Building

As its name suggests, the EEI Building is Tokyo Tech’s flagship hub for research in energy technology and system design. Covered by over 4,500 solar panels, this building produces roughly the amount of energy it consumes. Its research offices and experimental laboratories alternate floors so that researchers and students can easily move between both.

Sports facilities

The Ookayama Campus Sports Center includes a large outdoor sports ground, an indoor sports arena, a heated swimming pool, a martial arts hall, and a weight training room. Tennis courts, Japanese archery courses, and other activity areas are also spread around campus.

Through career counseling and support events, coordinated efforts with the Tokyo Tech Alumni Association, and career development courses within the curriculum, the Institute ensures that students make informed decisions about the paths they envision.
