Located in the heart of the oldest and most distinguished universities in Japan,
the School of Engineering at the University of Tokyo attracts many students who come to the school to develop advanced, innovative and exciting research projects.
The school is ranked as one of the highest among universities in Asia, and carries out major research projects worldwide.
The School of Engineering, the largest graduate school in the University of Tokyo, pursues research through its commitments in creative intellectual developments, technical innovations and engaging with emerging technologies. Ultimately, it aims to contribute to the sustainable social development for all human activities. The research conducted at the School of Engineering covers a diverse range of areas from the experiments on hardware to the fields of information technology and artificial intelligence; investigations on social systems including environmental issues, disaster prevention, energy and urban planning; studies on the human being; explorations into life sciences, medical and other interdisciplinary fields. By maintaining collaborations with many other engineering entities, the school has achieved a number of outstanding research projects and applications required for today’s world and future societies.
To further enhance its academic activities in Japan and overseas, the Graduate School of Engineering has launched the Master’s Global 30 Special English Course. This postgraduate course has been built around an “English-as-a-global-language” academic environment to promote internationalization within the school. The objective of this course is to provide education to promising, qualified students from all around the world, and to generate opportunities for such students to share and collaborate on research projects on a global scale. The master’s degree course is designed to promote the Japanese language as well as to provide a platform for both academic and cultural interactions among Japanese and international students. In October 2010, as one of our first steps in creating a bilingual educational environment, the Graduate School of Engineering started accepting international students to the Global 30 Special English Courses. The lectures for all of the below-described Global 30 courses are conducted in English, and students are eligible to receive degrees upon course completion. The above-mentioned three departments offer special courses.
