C2-a: AOTULE InboundOutline of the Program:
Each inbound exchange student joins a professor's laboratory and conducts a research under faculty supervision. The students are also required to attend two classes — High Tech Japan (one-time orientation and four industry visits) and Survival Japanese Class (basic Japanese language instruction). In August, Multidisciplinary International Student Workshop (MISW) is held, in which the students present their summer research results and interact with Tokyo Tech students.
Status at Tokyo Tech:
International Exchange Student
The students must affiliate one of Engineering Schools (School of Engineering, School of Material Science and Engineering, and School of Environmental and Society)
Classes and Credits:
AOTULE students cannot officially earn credits at Tokyo Tech. However, the Institute will issue academic transcripts to students at the end of each quarter so they can transfer credits to their own university.
Eligibility (at the time of application):
Postgraduate and final-year undergraduate students of the AOTULE member universities with a recommendation by a relevant dean.
3 months in summer (June to August)
Conducted in English
1 or 2 students from each AOTULE university
Apply through the home university AOTULE coordinator
C2-a: AOTULE OutboundThere are three kinds of outbound programs under the AOTULE scheme:
1) AOTULE Graduate Research Exchange ProgramOutline of the Program:
Research-oriented program with financial support
Number of Students:
About 2 students per year per host institution
1) Students enrolled in a master’s or doctoral degree program of the Engineering Schools at the time of dispatch
2) Students with GPA 2.3 (Max 3.0) and above in the previous year
Waived at partner universities
2 to 3 months
- Applicants must take into account the fact that some universities require completion of an application about 3 months prior to enrollment.
- Applicants must consult with the coordinator of the International Cooperation Office prior to the application submission. Applicants must not contact host institution faculty until the coordinator gives further notice.
2） AOTULE Summer Schools
Some AOTULE member universities offer summer courses for AOTULE partner universities. Tokyo Tech’s graduate and undergraduate students are eligible.
3） AOTULE Student Conference
Every year, AOTULE partner universities take turns to host the Deans/Admin Staff Meeting and Student Conference in autumn (October or November). About 20 Tokyo Tech graduate students are selected to attend the student conference based on their presentation at Multidisciplinary International Student Workshop (MISW) held in early August at Tokyo Tech.
