Toward the “Intelligent TDU” that adapts to Evolution of
Technology and Society
Ever since our establishment in 1907, Tokyo Denki University has sought to build a world-
leading country in science and technology, by devoting ceaseless effort to educating human
resources who can contribute to the development of society through their expertise.                                                             TRANSPORTATION &

Based on our founding spirit of “Respect Practical Study,” and our research and educational
motto “In the Technology Breathes its Creator,” we have fostered human resources boasting                                                                                        CONSTRUCTION &

provided society with large numbers of scientists and engineers.

Today society is plagued with issues created by science and technology, the solutions of
which would be inconceivable without the application of advanced science and technology.
Consequently, without close collaborative relationships among universities, industry and                                             Science                            Engineering

Universities are no longer able to isolate themselves from the changes occurring in society.     CHEMICALS

We refer to a system that adapts to changes in the environment as an “Intelligent System.”
This system possesses functions to recognize these environmental
changes, to accumulate knowledge and to build logical strategies.

TDU’s Power of Tradition and Progress

Looking ahead to the next 100 years
TDU was originally founded in 1907 first as an evening
vocational school named “Tokyo Denki School.” The two
co-founders, both of whom were engineers, had a dream
of transforming Japan into a technology-intensive nation,
and therefore the teaching staff was composed of Doctors
of Engineering who played an active role in the industrial
community at that time. The school’s unique instructional

demonstrations were highly evaluated, and the school’s
enrollment grew rapidly. In 1926, the number of students exceeded 10,000.
Small shops and street retailers of electric parts and accessories were opened around
TDU following World War II, and TDU students who wanted to scratch-build electric
appliances gathered in the market area. The growth of this electric market led to “Akihabara
Electric Town,” now known as the world’s most famous shopping district specializing in
electric appliances and electronic devices. This is a symbolic episode that connects TDU
with Japan as the country was about to begin its miraculous reconstruction.
In 1949, Tokyo Denki University was established and the School of Engineering was
opened. Dr. Yasujiro NIWA, famous as the inventor of the facsimile machine, was invited to
be the first president of TDU. His wise saying that “In the Technology Breathes its Creator”
has been adopted as TDU’s present research and education motto.

A new means of transmitting information invented by Dr. Niwa
In 1928, the enthronement ceremony of Emperor Hirohito was held in Kyoto, and
photographs of the event were transmitted from Kyoto to Tokyo.
This had been made possible through use of the “NE-type
telephotographic transmission system.” The success of Japan’s
first facsimile telecommunication! This system was invented by
Dr. Yasujiro NIWA, the first president of TDU and one of the “Ten
Japanese Great Inventors” (Japan Patent Office).
