Features
Founded in 1949, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) is a public university focusing on engineering and agriculture.
Within the faculty of agriculture, students can choose to study biological production, applied biological science, environmental and natural resource science, veterinary medicine or eco-regional science.
Engineering students can study mechanical systems engineering, applied physics, biotechnology and life sciences,chemical engineering, applied chemistry, organic and polymer materials chemistry, electrical and electronic engineering, or computer and information sciences.
TUAT is one of the largest recipients of royalty income from patents among Japanese higher level education institutions.
Its two campuses are situated in the cities of Fuchu and Koganei, Tokyo. The university boasts a Nature and Science Museum which holds samples reflecting the history of silk cultivation and textile science, including 500 ukiyoe woodblock prints picturing methods of silk cultivation between the Edo and the Meiji periods.
TUAT’s notable alumni are Professor Akira Endo, Japan Prize laureate; Lasker-Debakey, Clinical Medical Research Award winner; Morshed Khan, previous foreign minister of Bangladesh; Shigeru Uehara,development chief at Honda NSX; and Susumu Ohno, author of the book Evolution by gene duplication.
Learning in Tokyo also means you will have access to one of the world’s fastest, busiest and most eclectic cities. The city is also safe and clean and, if you learn the local tricks, Tokyo can prove relatively affordable too.
