The Shibaura Institute of Technology (芝浦工業大学, Shibaura Kōgyō Daigaku), abbreviated as Shibaura kōdai (芝浦工大, Shibaura kōdai), is a private university of Technology in Japan, with campuses located in Tokyo and Saitama. Established in 1927 as the Tokyo Higher School of Industry and Commerce, it was chartered as a university in 1949.[2]

The Shibaura Institute of Technology enjoys a moderately high reputation nationally, ranking 26th in the 2017 edition of Truly Strong Universities[3], 48th in Times Higher Education Japan University rankings for 2018[4][5] (out of 775 institutions[6]), and joint 7th among private universities in terms of entry difficulty (in STEM)[7]. While the average acceptance rate is in the region of 20-30%, the applicants per place ratio approaches or exceeds 20:1 in some departments.[8] Shibaura is the only private technology university in Japan to have been selected for the Top Global University Project.[6]
