From nanoelectronics to nuclear reactors, Tokyo Tech has gone from playing catch-up with the West in 1881 to a place in the vanguard of teaching and research in the natural sciences and engineering. Its three campuses are home to 10,000 students, half of them postgraduates, with a research and teaching staff of around 1,200.
