Innovators Plaza “t-COMPASS”


Sakichi Toyoda, one of the best known innovators in Japan, dedicated his entire life to social contribution through many inventions. His driving force for creativity brought Toyota into the automotive industry.
His guiding principle was ‘Respect the spirit of research and creativity, and always strive to stay ahead of the times’.  TTI adopted this spirit as the founding philosophy, both in education and in research.
TTI set up Innovators Plaza “t-COMPASS” in the display space of the library. “t-COMPASS” introduces the passion and challenging steps of manufacturing made by world famous inventors, by displaying panels, movies, books, historical materials and so on.  TTI hopes that students will utilize “t-COMPASS” as a compass for their future.

Creativity Development Studios (Eiji-Kōbō)


Mr. Eiji Toyoda, TTI’s founding Board chair, noted that, just as a hospital in a medical school, TTI must have a facility for hands-on education of fabrication technology, As a result, a machine shop was built and used till 2018; it was then reborn as Creativity Development Studios. It is nick-named as Eiji-Kōbō and used for students to learn fabrication methods and to create unique machines of their own; it is also by experts to make research instruments.

Nanotechnology Center : Collaborative Clean Room


To study physics and device applications of advanced materials, such as semiconductors and graphene, the nanometer-scale control of material compositions and device struc- tures is indispensable. TTI provides a group of processing facilities in its Clean Room to promote research on these fields and support researchers both inside and outside of TTI. Facilities are used also for experiential education of undergraduate students.
