Tokyo University of Science


Our university was founded under the name "Tokyo Butsurigaku Koshujo" (Tokyo Academy of Physics) in 1881 by 21 young bachelors of science who had just graduated from Tokyo University and was renamed to "Tokyo Butsuri Gakko" (Tokyo College of Science) two years later. Even though admission did not involve any examinations, education was tough, allowing less than one in ten students to graduate - strictly adhering to the principle of "Meritocracy" (advancement based on merit), which means that only students who had truly acquired real capabilities were permitted to graduate. In 1949, the Tokyo College of Science was reorganized under the new university system and became the "Tokyo University of Science" (TUS). Along with the advance of science and technology, departments covering a wide range of fields were set up, and today, TUS is the only general university for science and technology in Japan.
