The origin of Osaka Electro-Communication University (O.E.C.U.) was the East Asian Telecommunications Engineering School, which was established in 1941. As a university, it is directly descended from Osaka Electro-Communication University Junior College, which was established in 1958. Osaka Electro-Communication University Junior College's Electronic Engineering Department was created at the same time as the Electronic Engineering Departments at the University of Tokyo and Osaka University, making it the first such department at a private school in Japan. At the time, it was understood that manufacturing, based on electronic engineering, would help build the nation. Four-year universities were desired by the industrial world to educate technical experts, and O.E.C.U. was founded three years later in 1961 as a result.
In 2011, O.E.C.U. will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary. To leave our mark on the next fifty years, we have created a new philosophy that inherits the traditions of the past. We are sharing this philosophy with everyone who understands and supports the university, and pledge to make every effort for these initiatives that serve as the foundation for the future progression of the school.
- O.E.C.U. aims to produce people who possess the characteristics sought after by the school, and to be a place where students and teaching staff work together while further cultivating their characters through diligent study.
- O.E.C.U. places importance on practical education that simultaneously utilizes the hands, head, and heart.
- O.E.C.U. devotes itself to making great efforts for personal growth and continual learning.
- People with fundamental human power who hone their ability to respond realistically and solve practical problems, and who autonomously work for self growth.
- People who exhibit individuality and who contribute to society by fulfilling their roles responsibly.
- People who have pride in themselves, live spiritually rich lives, and strive to improve themselves.
