Toyohashi University of Technology (Toyohashi Tech) was established in 1976 to respond to the societal need to foster practical, creative engineers and cultivate qualified individuals who would show initiative and display leadership abilities. With this guiding philosophy, Toyohashi Tech focused largely on recruiting graduates of technical colleges.
Based on supporting technological progress through scientific inquiry, Toyohashi University of Technology's mission is the promotion of education and research in both academic and technological fields of science that lead to the creation of new technology. We have and continue to foster engineers and resourceful individuals, active at an international level, who are well rounded, practical, creative, capable of leadership, have an international outlook and value co-existence with the environment. We also continue to conduct research into pioneering technology that will forge a path for the next generation.
Therefore, education and research at our institution is not only required to provide pioneering research and development capabilities but is also imperative to take the lead in research fields that bring about innovation in industries and society, as well as foster internationally-minded engineers who can be active at the global level.
We provide active employment support for students, such as career guidance, company information sessions, and employment lectures.
