SIT Research Laboratories have been operating the Shared Equipment Centers since January 2016. The main aim of the centers is revitalizing education and research with a wide variety of cutting edge advanced devices. These devices include general purpose ones such as a common microscope to state-of-the art equipment and they are provided to students and faculty members working at the University. The shared equipment centers are located in our Toyosu and Omiya Campuses.

The Techno Plazas located at Toyosu campus have two shared equipment centers, active learning space, etc., with first one at Techno Plaza on the 1st floor of classroom building and the other at Techno Plaza II on the 1st floor of interchange building. They are operated by one technical staff. Apart from these centers, there are common equipment managed and operated in three Analysis Equipment Centers 1, 2, and 3 located at the floors 10, 11, 12 of the Research Building.

In the Omiya campus, common laboratory spaces have been set up in Room 202 in the Research Organization of Advanced Engineering Technology Building, and are operated with a technical staff. Shared equipment is also installed in Rooms 101, 104, and 106.

We encourage and look forward to the usage of the equipment by both students and faculty members. Please feel free to visit our Techno Plazas.

From April 2019, aiming to support the university-wide manufacturing research,Manufacturing Centerwas established and already started its operation. In case of Omiya campus, room 4101 has been added to be a workshop to the existing one in room 4102. Machine tools have also been significantly updated at the Toyosu workshop. Currently, we plan to gradually release each device while launching it. Details will be announced on this website in near future.
