The Charter of TUT
The Charter of Toyohashi University of Technology
Toyohashi University of Technology (TUT) was established in 1976 to respond to the societal need to foster practical, creative engineers and cultivate qualified individuals who would show initiative and display leadership abilities. With this guiding philosophy, TUT focused largely on recruiting graduates of technical colleges.
