World-class and Top-level Faculty Recruited from All Over the World

As a result of internationalization promoted at the University of Aizu ever since its establishment, we recruited outstanding individuals from Japan and overseas, and sought outstanding faculty by reviewing their achievements in their respective fields through detailed examinations, and this resulted in approximately 40% of the faculty being non-Japanese. We also have promoted collaborative research with overseas universities. Agreements with over 80 universities and research institutes all over the world have been concluded.
