We aim to be a school
Where women can shine
in the field of engineering
In order to realize a truly wealthy society, it is important to respect diversity and to utilize women’s contribution as a part of that diversity.
In FY2013, we established the Association of Leading Women Researchers in Engineering (ALicE) at the Tohoku University, working to realize a fine-tuned level of support for the field of engineering.* With the goal of realizing a society in which women can confidently pursue their careers in engineering, we are continuously implementing activities to support women in research and gender equality.
※ The engineering at Tohoku University is the collective term that encompasses Tohoku University’s Graduate School of Engineering, Graduate School of Information Sciences, Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, International Research Institute of Disaster Science, New Industry Creation Hatchery Center, Environment Conservation Center, and the Center for Innovative Integrated Electronic Systems.
