Grow and connect to reach your dreams.

A university is a place that gives you the wings to reach your ambitious dreams. The predecessor of our university, Musashi Institute of Technology, was originally founded in 1929 for students seeking “the ideal of engineering education”. Those students were able to realize their dreams of studying and learning. Since then, for more than 80 years, we have promoted quality engineering education and research worthy of the passion and spirit of our students to train engineers who can contribute to society.
In 2009, the university was renamed to Tokyo City University, a comprehensive university with 5 faculties and 16 departments. We have continued to develop, adding the Faculty of Environmental Studies and the Faculty of Informatics in April 2013, as we strive to pass on our traditions of highly-specialized engineering education to train excellent human resources.

Objectives for the Cultivation of Human Resources and Our Education and Research Programs

Our educational philosophy of "Theory and Practice" promotes practical learning that is backed by theories grounded in modern concepts. In this way we strive to cultivate talented human resources equipped with the technical skills required to respond to the modern needs of society.
It is important that we continue to elevate Japan’s technical prowess so that its presence continues to be felt throughout our globalizing world. This development of technology begins in the study of the fundamentals of “mono-dzukuri”, or the art of craftsmanship. In the Faculty of Engineering at Tokyo City University, we promote the concept of “21st Century Engineering Education” for training human resources who are equipped with multi-faceted viewpoints that closely reflect the needs of modern society and who can support the future of Japan. By providing a highly-specialized curriculum founded on the fundamentals of “mono-dzukuri”, and by promoting outstanding breakthroughs in technological development, we will contribute to a healthy society and its sustainable development.

Highly-specialized Research Laboratories

In the second semester of the 3rd year of their studies, students affiliate themselves with a research laboratory that matches their interests and future aspirations. There, students will be able to carry out practical course studies while developing knowledge in their specialization as well as social skills. In their 4th year, students will carry out graduation research under the close supervision of the research laboratory’s faculty while developing the skills need to adapt and excel once out in society.

Theory and Practice

The educational philosophy of the Faculty of Engineering is “Learning through theory and practice”. Students cultivate solid fundamental skills through basic common courses combined with courses covering theory, which are taken in their first and second years. Students then continue on in experimentation, practical work and seminars to develop specialized and practical knowledge that applies those theories through hands-on learning.
