Gathering experts in their respective fields
The University of Aizu seeks out outstanding human resources both domestically and internationally, and rigorously examines their performance in their respective fields of expertise. As a result, approximately 40% of all faculty members are from abroad. In addition, since computer science and engineering is primarily an English-based discipline, a high level of English proficiency is essential. For this reason, the University of Aizu does not have a second foreign language curriculum and provides thorough English education (a certain TOEIC score is required to advance from the second year to the third year of undergraduate study). All students are required to write and present their graduation theses in English.
