    Our Department of Architecture and Building Engineering at Tokyo Tech originated in 1907 as part of the curriculum at Tokyo Tech's parent institution Tokyo Technical High School (i.e., Technische Hochschule) founded in 1881. The department is therefore one of the oldest university-level architectural schools in Japan. With its one-hundred-year history it enjoys a high reputation both within and outside Japan, a number of its graduates having become renowned architects, structural engineers or academics. 
    This International Graduate Program is solely for master's students and is administered chiefly by the Architectural Design Course of the department. (NB: all Japanese architectural degrees are conferred in the form of an engineering qualification.) Its major concentration is within architectural design (studio courses) and history and theory, with fieldwork broaching new architectural themes in an urban context. Requisite instruction to better understand Japanese megacities and the built environment throughout Japan will be offered in seminars that also include architectural tours. Instructors will assist and encourage students seeking to master these themes, and each student will be required to obtain 34 credits over two years of study and complete either a design diploma-- or a written thesis in English-- at the end of the second year.
