Engineering makes use of the knowledge gained through research to design dreams and shape the future—for the good of the earth and human society. Putting sustainability first, we value earth’s limited resources, protect and nurture the global commons, and lead the transformation into a society that does not burden the environment. At the same time, we help to realize an inclusive society that respects human diversity and celebrates individuality.
To achieve our goals, we will enhance synergy between engineering and other disciplines to form a common vision that meets social expectations. We will work together with companies, social entrepreneurs, and international organizations focused on solving social issues to meet Environment, Social, and Governance standards as well as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. As capital-intensive industries become disrupted by knowledge-intensive ones, we will provide engineering education that meets the needs of the new social system.
With change comes opportunity. Thus, we tackle challenges with a pioneering spirit and commit the world’s highest level of engineering education and research to the service of the global community in the march toward sustainable living.
By promoting diversity, supporting young researchers, and linking knowledge across different fields, we will strive for excellence in engineering research and endeavor to create value in a knowledge-intensive society.
By balancing tradition with innovation in engineering, we will provide the best educational opportunity to nurture deep expertise and entrepreneurship. Students will be trained to possess a global outlook and public perspective so as to grow into knowledge professionals and innovation leaders.
With strengthened research infrastructure, diversified financial resources, and modernized rules, we will carry out world-class engineering research over longer timeframes made possible in an academic environment.
Our strategy is to promote cooperation with society—transcending the boundaries of sectors, countries, generations—and to form a common vision for a better future by leveraging our comprehensive knowledge.
