＜Comment from Chancellor Miyazaki>
I am delighted that our university has been ranked in the top rankings of the Japanese edition of the World University Rankings for the fifth consecutive year.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all of you for your support and the achievements of our faculty, staff, students, and graduates that have earned our university this high ranking.
At present, due to the effects of the new coronavirus infection, it is still very difficult to conduct international education and research activities, but we will overcome this situation by taking advantage of the characteristics of a university specializing in ICT, and make further efforts to return the research results to the reconstruction and creation of our prefecture.
