Ever since its predecessor was established in 1881 by 21 young physicists, the Tokyo University of Science (Tokyo Rika Daigaku) has continually pursued the lofty ideal of contributing to Japan's development through the pursuit and dissemination of scientific knowledge. As a science-oriented university, we have endeavored to meet the needs of society and the times by adopting new educational approaches and undertaking research in today's most vital fields.
One of the most important objectives of a university is to educate people so that they can contribute to the development and welfare of humankind. To achieve this ideal, we have pursued interdisciplinary studies and state-of-the-art technologies while at the same time strengthening our basic education program. Even as we retain our traditional emphasis on the fundamentals of science, TUS has developed into one of Japan's most progressive universities in meeting the needs of today's internationalized, information-oriented society. Through our unique education and research programs, we will continue to strive for the betterment of society.
