Careers of our graduates

Main careers of our graduates

Our approximately 6,000 graduates are actively engaged in a wide range of fields, and our overwhelming extensive network has led to the employment of both undergraduate and master's degree students in a wide variety of companies and institutions. It is unlikely that students will have any trouble finding employment. The largest number has been over 20 graduates in the last 5 years. In addition to covering the most popular companies for employment in the electronics, telecommunications, and information systems industries, an increasing number of graduates are setting up their own venture companies. Another recent trend is the increase in the recruitment of software development positions at automobile manufacturers. There are also graduates working as software engineers at Google and Yahoo, as well as in consulting, finance, and public research institutes such as the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). Graduates who have acquired extensive knowledge while working closely with society have gone on to a wide variety of careers.

Testimonials from graduates

The importance of manufacturing learned from electric vehicles

Yusuke Onda

In spring 2010, the University of Tokyo EV club "UTECH" started a self-made EV (electric vehicle) with the aim of making it as fast as a gasoline-powered car. In the beginning, all eight members of the club were electrical engineers with no mechanical engineering background, so everything involved trial and error. While modifying the chassis we received from the University of Tokyo Formula Factory (UTFF) and struggling to connect even a single iron pipe to create a car, students who loved manufacturing, including those in the mechanical field, naturally came to join us. A clear objective to get the car running motivated us. Through building cars, many things that I had done without understanding in my 3rd year experiment class were corroborated for the first time, so I had to dust off my old textbooks and study them again. I also gained valuable work experience by collaborating with professors in the university, sponsor companies, and other universities. If you want to enjoy your college life, by all means, try your hand at actually manufacturing things.

Even those interested in the expression field come to electrical field

Yasuaki Kakehi

I am currently working as a media artist as well as a researcher of interactive media technology with the aim of enriching everyday life. At first glance, it may seem that expressive fields such as art and design are not related to electronics and information engineering. However, as media diversifies today, technology and expression are closely related, and it is becoming increasingly important to have personnel who can cover both, not just technological development or mere expression. I studied a wide range of fields in the department of electronics and information engineering, from the basics of information technology to the applied fields such as media content. This knowledge has been utilized in my own technical research and creative expression. If you are interested in a career in the field of expression at the University of Tokyo, I encourage you to consider studying electronics and information engineering.

Beyond the words "electrical and electronic engineering"

Kazuhiro Hosoi

I obtained a doctoral degree in electronics and information engineering, but I am currently working in a development field at a general company, not in a research area. This may be unusual for a doctoral graduate. I had the option of continuing my research, but in the end, I chose the career path I am on now. I made this choice because I was able to study a wide range of subjects and experience many different things in the electronics and information engineering major. Some in the labs in the electronics and information engineering department are engaged in fundamental research in electrical and electronic engineering, while others are studying applications in a wide range of fields, such as social systems, art, and music. I believe that being involved with people from various fields will broaden your way of thinking and your perspective on things. If you are conscious of learning a wide range of subjects without being limited by the words "electrical and electronic," I believe you will be able to expand your possibilities within the electronics and information fields.
