Introduction

Under the CAMPUS Asia Initiative of the governments of Japan, China and South Korea, Tokyo Tech is an active participant in and contributor to the TKT CAMPUS Asia Consortium, a joint education and research program with Tsinghua University and KAIST. In our Summer School 2019, as part of the Consortium's activities, we offer two types of Summer Program: a Course-Oriented Program for undergraduate students, and a Research-Oriented Program for undergraduate and graduate students. In the Summer School, students from countries outside Asia will also participate. Regarding the other programs, students need to be nominated by Tsinghua University or KAIST to apply for the program.
