Tokyo University of Science opens its first overseas office in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The office is affiliated with the Japan Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS) San Francisco Center and located near the UC Berkeley. TUS continues to promote international collaboration in education and research with the advanced research universities.

The Tokyo University of Science continues to promote international collaboration in education and research with academic institutions that include three University of California campuses (UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis, and UC Santa Barbara), Ohio State University, Portland State University and the University of Maryland.

In order to more actively pursue international moves that include international cooperation among industry, academia, and government, TUS will open its first San Francisco Office in Berkeley, California, USA. The new office will be established in collaboration with the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) within the JSPS San Francisco Center. One full-time staff member from TUS will be dispatched from the university and stationed within the office from May 21.

The TUS San Francisco Office will provide risk management and management of international education programs throughout the year for the TUS students who are participating in one-year study programs in University of California campuses as well as short-term English study program in summer at UC Santa Cruz or Portland State University. Moreover, the office will take charge of efforts to actively develop international education and research collaboration programs with major research-oriented universities in North America through communication to and data collection within North America. The office will also engage in active communication and data collection in Silicon Valley, which is the center of industry-academia-government collaboration in the United States.
