We are pleased to announce the establishment of “Institute of Science Tokyo” has been officially approved by the Diet by passing an act to partially amend the National University Corporation Act on 13 December 2023. Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) will be integrated to form new “Institute of Science Tokyo” on 1 October 2024.
TMDU and Tokyo Tech have reached an agreement on the integration of the two national university corporations and their universities to form one national university corporation and one university by signing a basic agreement on October 14, 2022.
This unprecedented integration of the two designated national universities and the establishment of a new university will form a center of internationally outstanding education and research that will aim to forge a vibrant future together with society. By combining the knowledge and numerous achievements related to science, engineering, medicine, and dentistry that each has accumulated to date, the two institutions can evolve into a new university that will help solve global issues such as environmental problems, emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases, and the declining birthrate and aging society.
