UTokyo is networked with top universities and research institutions from all parts of the world and the flow of students, research and researchers creates a truly global campus. When our university will be like The University of Tokyo.

A message from The University of Tokyo

The University of Tokyo (UTokyo) has lead research and education in Japan since our foundation as a national university in 1877. For more than a century, we have been nurturing minds that have gone on to explore space, win Nobel Prizes and expand the frontiers of human knowledge. Today, over 5,500 faculty and over 27,000 students make UTokyo one of the most important global hubs of research and education in one of Asia’s most exciting cities.

UTokyo has long been known as Japan’s premier institution of higher education and for our low student-to-faculty ratio. Our unique liberal arts education provides a sound base in the first half of our four-year undergraduate program, after which our students choose a two-year specialization in line with their interests. We encourage interdisciplinary approaches throughout.

Our graduate schools provide an excellent environment for first-rate intensive research with the world’s leading researchers, and each graduate student can learn at the cutting edge of their field. In recent years UTokyo has established undergraduate and graduate English-language degree programs, such as our undergraduate PEAK program, further promoting campus diversity.

UTokyo also goes abroad to bring our university to the world, through events such as the UTokyo Forum, held in close partnership with globally renowned academic institutions around the world since 2000. 

UTokyo researchers and alumni have expanded the frontiers of human knowledge and their achievements have been recognized in multiple Nobel and other prizes. Yoichiro Nambu and Masatoshi Koshiba have transformed physics, while Kenzaburo Oe and Yasunari Kawabata have enriched global culture through their literary works, to mention just a few. Our website UTokyo Research offers a glimpse into the world of our cutting-edge research.

To get recognise by academic world not just dreaming and talking to others. First leaders must know what they are talking. Second the determination, planing and sacrifice. All members must clear and support. Identify commited and performing staff and support them financially, morally and physically. In Malaysia how many professors were not managed wisely to gain high quality of products and helping government mission for world class university.

Probably we need 3-5 millions ringgit to have this kind of simple laboratory. If we want to see science develop fast and producing high quality scientists at world standard, we need to sacrifice. Just trust the professors. Change our mind set from trusting technician and salesman to trusting the professors.

To be a guest lecturer in foreign universities, not just giving lecture. We must have contact overseas or in foreign universities, our counterpart must trust us and they know that we have something to tell their students and can develop their students interest in your particular area or topic OR in general in your field of research or expertise.

If all countries in the world are trusting each other, may be we can see how MH370 landed in the Indian Ocean. May be every body try to hide their capability to trace MH370 using moden technology. Science is for everybody. BUT sometime misused by somebody. Competing for high knowledge of science actually competing for power. No wonder all developed countries put high effort for science. Malaysia still struggling to attract young into science.

prices for food, changing life style, transportation and daily or monthly incomes are great challenge in everybody life now. How to help the poor and struggling for high income society. Scientists and Economist must work together. Do not let a lone the politician do the talking and convincing.

One is spoilt for choice when shopping at hypermarkets.

I already proposed  many ideas to two meetings on "Urban Society and  Their Standard of Living-how to help?" I do not know how they accept the ideas. School bus operators, restaurant operators, fish, chicken and vegetables sellers are not willing to reduce prices. Too many opportunist to take advantages on people but not many proactive and creative economist and scientists come forward to help.

Strengthen UPM&AORI The Tokyo University collaboration in coastal marine sciences. Soon will continue the MoU 2014-2019 and getting postdoctoral or young lecturer to develop new area in the field of ecology and behaviour of wildlife.

All state government must go hand in hand with the federal government. If possible all rules and regulation regarding land, forest, river and coastal areas must be discussed together chaired by the Menteri Besar or Chief Minister and give full consideration to the environmental issues. People are laughing when we have contradict action between destroying habitat and biodiversity, development, environmental protection and conservation. Look at Kuala Gula and Kuala Koh as an example. Now Tanjung Piai and Merambong Seagrass Bed. Call NGO such as Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) for advice.

paleontologist still active digging earth for more scientific evidence: some look at creatures fossils and some looking at history of human kind.

Gigantic Cambrian Shrimplike Creature Unearthed in Greenland

A new filter-feeding giant that trolled the Cambrian seas has been unearthed in Greenland.
The species, dubbed Tamisiocaris borealis, used large, bristly appendages on its body to rake in tiny shrimplike creatures from the sea, and likely evolved from the top predators of the day to take advantage of a bloom in new foods in its ecosystem.

In England, Japan, Germany or even Poland, they are very strong in academic culture. Exchange knowledge among academician through seminar. This particular seminar was actively participated by young lecturer and postgraduate students. Seminar was presented in Japanese BUT I listened from the beginning until finish. I understand through papers given and slides shown. We need change our attitude and direction in order to be like world class university.

As I mentioned many times earlier, tradition, culture, practice and believe will make the society success. Why Japanese are in front in term of academic quality, technology and economy? All about culture and tradition. Look at their food, how they eat, time when they eat, systems that they developed all based on their culture and practical for their life style. If we want to develop we need to understand our culture first and develop the systems based on our culture and daily life style. If we copy the system from others in to our culture there will create another conflict. In Malaysia, Malays for examples like to follow others without sacrificing their culture and tradition. May be malays need to study their culture, tradition and life style and adapt and adopt others systems. In term of technology for examples we need to move together our culture, tradition, life style and power of thinking. We do not want third class thinking in first class technology. Avoid those conflict!!!

All 239 on board MH370 are lost: Why in remote area of Indian Ocean?

All 239 on board feared dead, MH370 has gone down in Indian Ocean

"Malaysia Airlines deeply regrets that we have to assume beyond any reasonable doubt that MH370 has been lost and that none of those on board survived. As you will hear in the next hour from Malaysia's Prime Minister, we must now accept all evidence suggests the plane went down in the Southern Indian Ocean."

In Malaysia, 97% of our tap water comes from rivers. However, many of our rivers are heavily polluted due to unsustainable development and improper management of these rivers. As of 2012, only 58% of Malaysian rivers are still clean, 35% are slightly polluted, and the remaining 7% are polluted: Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) educating people on environment, nature and conservation. Safe our forest, love our river and practice recycle (3R)
Life has returned to Selangor's Sungai Way, thanks to a clean-up project with the local community.

Hari Raya 2014. Fashion already started and cannot wait for Ramadhan. Celebration and ceremonial are in our current culture.

More people concern about What happening in state forest boedering Taman Negara Kuala Koh. But who cares. Laws available in Malaysia cannot help biodiversity in Taman Negara and Orang asli pressure on Taman Negara. Ladang Rakyat ignored Aduan Rakyat.

Flight MH370: French and Chinese satellite images show 'potential objects' Australian PM Tony Abbott says there is 'increasing hope' as search plane identifies wooden pallet and strapping belts in Indian Ocean. India, Japan and other countries involved too. This really challenge us. We really need to develop our experts and facilities. We still depending on other from ideas, thinking, education, expertise and technical facilities.

Malaysia Flight MH370 Airlines continues service as planes prepare for passengers to board at Kuala Lumpur Airport.

This morning I have the opportunity to talk to someone already retired on the wheel chair and asking him about the space that he developed for a specific research. I knew that he already retired, cannot speak properly, even though he still can think and cannot give lecture and probably cannot do research. BUT happily I heard that he still keeping the space for his next project after he recovered from all health condition later. Well I think the spirit is good but practically NO. We still have this kind of people in Malaysia. Scientists can work as long as they can think and move on earth.

More background knowledge on basic science or biology needed if we want to promote agriculture activities. look and analyse the sign board below.

Malaysia too can have good scenery if we design properly and have good landscape, clean and good maintenance. we need first class thinking society

Global warming will disrupt food supplies, slow world economic growth and may already be causing irreversible damage to nature, according to a U.N. report due this week that will put pressure on governments to act. Only 40 percent of Americans and 39 percent of Chinese view climate change as a major threat, according to a Pew Research Center survey of 39 nations in 2013.How about Malaysian? Competing opening new forest areas for agriculture as part of poverty and high income society solution in Malaysia.

"The scientific reasoning for reducing emissions and adapting to climate change is becoming far more compelling, "

Malaysia Airlines plane hits flock of ducks in Nepal.A Malaysia Airlines aircraft on a scheduled flight (MH114) from Kuala Lumpur with 180 passengers and crewmembers on board escaped disaster while landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) here on Friday night. In Malaysia we have Bird Strike Committee but never have a meeting. Bird migration routes must be identified and well monitored. Their path may change due to the change of the environment condition because they depending on the environmental factors. Need experts to help.
More than 75 bird strike incidents have occurred during take-off or landing at the TIA since 1990, with three resulting in major damage to aircraft. A Thai Airways Airbus A300 in 1996 and a Bangladesh Biman DC-10 in 2010 escaped without major incident, but 19 people were killed when Sita Air Dornier crashed in September 2012

Business: how do we know when is the right time to buy a ticket? buy early more expensive. Want to buy late may be no more ticket. so we gamble. we buy early and later few days before departure the price is lower. ?????
