About Tokyo University of Technology

The Tokyo University of Technology (TUT) is a private university in Tokyo, Japan, which has been chartered as a university since 1986. It traces its roots back to a predecessor founded in 1947, called Soubi Gakuen.

TUT educates students to become engineers and information and communications technology (ICT) experts.

When it opened, it was a single-faculty college with only a School of Engineering. Today, it has five faculties with two campuses in Tokyo, in Hachioji and Kamata.

In 1999 the school of media science opened as the first of its kind in Japan. In 2003 the university added the school of computer science and the school of bioscience and biotechnology. In 2010 the School of Design and the School of Health were opened.

The Graduate School includes four programmes: bionics, computer science, media science and entrepreneurship.

The school emblem, created in 1997 for the school’s 50th anniversary, represents both the laboratory building and three Es, which are the initial letters of three keywords that represent the three philosophies of the school: electronics, entertainment and ecology.

Tokyo University of Technology has established exchange programmes with Carnegie Mellon University, the Communication University of China, the Berlin University of Technology, and the University of Perpignan.

It also created the TUT Digital Studio Systems Laboratory inside the Robert Zemeckis Center of the University of Southern California to promote an exchange program and R&D in innovative image technology.

The university offers a three-week English study course held at York St John University in England for students wishing to enhance their language skills and acquire an international perspective.
