Toyohashi University of Technology (TUT), known as Toyohashi Tech, is a national university conducting research on advanced technologies and education to nurse creative and practical engineers with master’s degrees. The institute was founded in 1976 by the Japanese government as a new-style university accepting students mainly from colleges of technology. Our motto is “master technology, create technology”. In 2012, it was selected for the National University Reform Enhancement Project, and in 2013 for the Leading Graduate School Program as well as the Program for Promoting the Enhancement of Research Universities. By putting these programmes into practice, Toyohashi Tech aims to raise its global profile to the point that it becomes recognised worldwide. Thanks in part to its efforts in this regard, Toyohashi Tech applied for, and was selected to take part in, the Top Global University Project under the category of Global-Leading Type (type B). To achieve the goals of this project, Toyohashi Tech will create a multicultural campus that will help to foster high quality engineers with thoroughly international sensibilities.
