Tokyo Tech’s Graduation Ceremonies for academic year 2022 were held on March 27, 2023 at Ookayama Campus. Bachelor’s degree recipients were acknowledged in the morning, while master’s and doctoral graduates were honored in the afternoon.
This spring, Tokyo Tech conferred 182 doctoral degrees, 1,588 master’s degrees, 34 professional master’s degrees, and 1,041 bachelor’s degrees.
Most of the graduates were able to participate in their respective ceremonies at the Sports Arena in person. Joining them at the venue were President Kazuya Masu, members of the board, deans and directors, and Tokyo Tech Alumni Association President Kiyoto Ido (Class of 1972, Department of Mathematics). Family members and friends were invited to watch the festivities from the 70th Anniversary Auditorium, while those who could not be present were able to experience the celebrations virtually via a livestream.
During his speeches, Masu congratulated the newest Tokyo Tech graduates for their tenacity and achievements, and invited them to share their knowledge and creativity with the people they encounter in the future. “Regardless of our evolution, we will always cherish our traditions and welcome you here with open arms,” Masu stated in reference to the Institute’s planned merger with Tokyo Medical and Dental University.
In his brief addresses, alumnus Ido also offered his congratulations and shared with the graduates his motivating message regarding the future.
After these congratulatory messages, bachelor’s and master’s degrees were presented to representatives of each cohort of graduating students. All attending doctoral degree students received their diplomas individually from Masu. At the ceremony for bachelor’s degree recipients, students with outstanding academic achievements also received the 2022 Tokyo Institute of Technology Academic Excellence Award.
To conclude each ceremony, the valedictorians for each cohort offered their messages of gratitude and hope to the president, Tokyo Tech faculty members, fellow students, and the broader community.
The Tokyo Tech community wishes all the newest graduates continued health and success.
