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 2018, 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.
