At the end of World War II, with much of Japan lying in ruins from multiple airstrikes and particularly with the hydrogen bomb dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, our founder, Mr. Tsutomu Kake (1923 – 2008) came to the realization that because this country has few natural resources ONLY through education can Japan recover. From that point on and throughout the rest of his life, Mr. Kake had been actively involved in the development of education in Japan.

The spirit espoused by Mr. Kake: "To draw out each and every youth’s abilities to their maximum potential, and to educate individuals to contribute to society as skilled professionals and as members of their communities." He established Okayama University of Science to combine the ideals of academic thinking and high mindedness from 1964 to the present day.
