Message From The President

Tokyo University of Information Sciences was established in 1988 by Tokyo University of Agriculture Educational Corporated, and was the first private university to use “information” in its name.
Our goal since our establishment has been to create a workforce rich in compassion, possessing large-scale knowledge of informatics to meet the needs of society.
At present, we provide a Faculty of Informatics, Faculty of Nursing, and Graduate School of Informatics Master Course/Doctor Course.
Our maxim is “Break Through to the Future,” and our educational philosophy is “Practicality.” We continue to follow in the footsteps of Meiji-era Viscount Takeaki Enomoto, the founder of Tokyo University of Agriculture, by developing the two concepts of pioneering spirit and practicality to assist in constructing modern society.
Our teaching philosophy is based on “Independence and Cooperation.” We will continue to provide research systems, curricula and student assistance that help students to grow while making scientific developments and finding solutions to current social issues.
At present, our society is aging while undergoing nonstop digitalization. We would like to educate people who can construct the future on both a local and global scale while meeting the needs of today.

History

The Spirit of Ikueiko

Founder of Tokyo University of Agriculture
Takeaki Enomoto

Our university was founded in April, 1988 (Showa 63) in Chiba City with the goal of looking ahead to the future, meeting the needs of the age through new expertise and international perspective, and developing balanced students.
Our founder, Tokyo University of Agriculture, celebrated their 120th anniversary in 2011, as did the eight educational organizations they have founded to date, including TUIS. Their story begins all the way back in 1891 (Meiji 24) with the Ikueiko School, Tokugawa Ikuei-kai Foundation established by Meiji statesman Takeaki Enomoto.
From a comprehensive standpoint, Enomoto’s spirit of developing students capable of meeting society’s needs as he did through the Ikueiko School has transcended time and continues to live on at Tokyo University of Information Sciences today.
