Establishment of the University of Tokyo
The Engineering College, the predecessor of the Faculty of Engineering, was absorbed by the main body of the University.
The Second Faculty of Engineering was founded in Chiba to cope with urgent demand for skilled engineers. It operated until 1951.
IIS was established as a result of the reorganization of the Second Faculty of Engineering (May 31).
Experimental blast furnace for iron production research started operation.
A project on rockets for space research was started.
The main body of the Institute transferred from Chiba to Tokyo. Since then, the Chiba Campus, called the Chiba Experiment Station, has accommodated oversize experiments.
