Imperial College of Engineering

The Imperial College of Engineering (ICE or nihongo|"Kobu Daigakko"|工部大学校) was founded as a university at Tokyo in 1873, though its predecessor the nihongo|"Kogakuryo"|工学寮 existed from 1871. The name "Kobu Daigakko" dates from 1877. In modern-day parlance it would have been called an institute of technology.

The ICE was under the nihongo|Ministry of Works|工部省|"Kobusho" which was abolished in 1885. Control was then transferred to the nihongo|Ministry of Education|文部省|"Monbusho" and the ICE became part of the Imperial University (later the University of Tokyo) when it was created by the Ministry of Education in 1886. The ICE was thenceforth the Faculty of Engineering of the Imperial University.

The ICE had the following schools: architecture, chemistry, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, metallurgy, mining, shipbuilding, and telegraphy.

Students were required to write notes and graduation theses in English. Some of these survive and are on display at the nihongo|National Science Museum|国立科学博物館|"Kokuritsu Kagaku Hakubutsukan" in Ueno Park, Tokyo (New Building, 2F (second floor)).
