Helping TDK Maintain its Edge Through Knowledge, Relationships, and Joint Projects

Member Testimonials
As a market leader in novel electronic materials, TDK has consistently strived to expand its horizons through innovative R&D partnerships with academia. In 1985, the company was particularly interested in gaining access to state-of-the-art research and expertise in materials science and engineering. In due time, TDK found what it was looking for at MIT, and a great deal more. Its decision to join the Industrial Liaison Program (as part of funding the TDK Professorship in Materials Science and Engineering) launched a robust collaborative relationship with MIT that continues to this day. “We’ve been conducting joint research and development projects and sponsored research programs with about 60 universities, but MIT is the only institute that has a liaison office like the ILP,” notes Dr. Shigekazu Sumita, Director of TDK’s Corporate R&D Planning Department. “ILP support has enabled us to build amicable relations with MIT researchers for over sixteen years.”
