Tokai University is a private university established by Shigeyoshi Matsumae in 1942. We have 8 campuses and 18 undergraduate schools, 17 graduate schools all over Japan. The main campus, called “SHONAN Campus", is located in Hiratsuka, Kanagawa about 50 km west of Tokyo. There are over 20,150 students studying at this campus.
"Tokai" of "Tokai University" refers to the sea to the east of Asia, namely the Pacific Ocean, and symbolizes the desire to foster the kinds of big hearts, rich spirits, and broad perspectives symbolized by the expanse of an ocean.
The white cross of the school flag symbolizes "Love" and "Justice," and expresses the presence of "Truth" where love and justice meet.
The Tokai University is one of the largest general education and research institutions in Japan today. To seek mutual understanding and global peace through the education of, and interaction with, young scholars from around the world, we began accepting foreign students from at early stage and have consistently promoted Japanese-language education.
The Educational Creed of Tokai University is as follows:
-Cultivate your thoughts in your early days
-Nurture your body in your early days
-Develop your intellect in your early days
-Aim your hopes towards the stars in your early days
This slogan reminds us that we should cultivate both our bodies and our minds to the fullest possible extent. If an individual has acquired deep insights into human nature, society, the natural world, historical processes, the world, and so on, he or she will be able to embrace high ideals and can lay the foundation for a deeper understanding of life.
The Graduate School of Tokai University is aimed at those students who want to pursue advanced research after graduating. As a result of the rapid technological advances of the last few years, our society has advanced and diversified, such that there is a greater need than ever before for human resources with high-level expertise and technical skills. In response to this, the demand for graduate school places is also increasing, as students seek to play a leading role in future society. In response to the demands, Tokai University established its graduate school. The University is taking advantage of its undergraduate experience to realize a diversified and advanced learning site with close cooperation between the postgraduate courses and specialties
The Graduate School of Engineering was established in 1963 with Course of Electric Engineering and Course of Applied Science. We had major organizational changes in 1976 and 2004, and now we offer 5 courses; The 5 courses from year 2016 are the Course of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Course of Applied Science, Course of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Course of Mechanical Engineering and Course of Biomedical Engineering.
We cover almost all fields in engineering, which enables us to meet wide society needs, as well as fulfill various desires of students.
We provide, in accordance with the founding spirit of Tokai University, curriculum to nurture personnel that have highly specialized skills, character and knowledge based on international perspectives. It also provides personalized research guidance by academic advisors that equip students with the ability to pose questions and formulate solutions to them. While global concern for environmental destruction arises, we place emphasis on what is a characteristic of Tokai, education to develop the whole person based on a proper outlook on history and the world. Through this, we aim to foster personnel who possess high standards of engineer ethics and passion to contribute to society.
In order to survive in an increasingly globalized society, internationalization is an essential issue for the future. As a component of internationalization, the Graduate School of Engineering has some courses in English.
The two objectives of this instruction are to improve English skills of Japanese students in specialized fields so that they are able to perform in the international society; and to acquire talented international students. In addition, the graduate school encourages and values the ability of students to present their research in English at an international conference, etc., which is an effective method to acquire international perspectives and awareness.
In the Graduate School of Engineering, a master’s degree is awarded to a student who has acquired the following skills;
In the Graduate School of Engineering, the evaluation of a master’s thesis is based on the following criteria:
>> Over view of Course of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Industrial production and social interactions, and indeed virtually all forms of human activity in today's modern world, are utterly dependent on electrical and electronic technology. This same technology can also play a key role in the preservation and rehabilitation of environmental degradation here on earth and in near space caused by human activity. Meanwhile, due to explosive popularization and advancement of internet and other digital networks, meanwhile, they now constitute a vital component of public infrastructure.
Recent years have seen the emergence of increasingly specialized electrical and electronic engineering courses at the graduate school level. Tokai University however has decided to revert a conventional broad-based approach in order to provide a more well-rounded education for engineers. The re-established Course of Electrical and Electronic Engineering combines previous courses in electrical and electronics systems, electro photo optics and information science and engineering to provide an engineering perspective on a range of different fields including electrics, electronic, information science, communications, photo optics, imaging, control, bioengineering and medical science. By fusing traditional academic structures with various innovative technologies, the course generates valuable new understandings in interdisciplinary research and teaching outcomes.

The Shonan campus, the main campus of Tokai University, with a lush natural environment offers fully equipped educational and sport facilities spread across the sprawling University ground! Students who are enrolled in the Graduate School of Engineering spend their entire university life at this campus. This campus has an area of 508102 square meters, and almost 20,150 students are studying here. There are 9 under graduate schools, 9 graduate schools (master level) and 7 PhD courses offering diversity academic fields in this campus.
There are 1.43 million books among 4 libraries and 5 cafeterias and 2 cafes on the campus. Furthermore, you can use a well-equipped fitness center (the charge for using this fitness center is 500 JPY/year), and computer centers (there are 46 rooms and 2138 PCs on the campus). Also we have a medical care office in cooperation with our School of Medicine.
For your rooms, we provide you the Tokai University International Residence for the first 6 months. The rooms are well-furnished. Utility charges are included in the room charge (45000JPY/month). After 6 months, when you get used to the university and Japan, we will offer you room information of some real estate companies that we recommend. There are many nice and cheap rooms around the campus.
