Our founding principle "Building a Better Future with Science"

Tokyo University of Science (TUS), founded in 1881, is one of the oldest private universities of science and technology in Japan. One of the most important objectives of a university is to educate students 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 grown into one of Japan’s largest comprehensive science and technology universities, consisting of 7 faculties and 31 departments, to meet 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.
