University of Tokyo, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics
The history of the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics is divided roughly into two eras. The first period was started in 1918 and was closed immediately after the Second World War. The total number of graduates in this period was 438. After reopening in 1954, it was reorganized and extended to the present state with the recent remarkable development in the fields of aeronautics and space technology. The graduate school education is more weighed nowadays responding to the recent technology sophistication.
About seventy percent of graduates enter the Graduate School every year. The rest of the graduates enter the national research laboratories and the relevant industries, such as aircraft and space, automobile and other heavy industries.
