Ehime University (愛媛大学, Ehime Daigaku?, abbreviated to 愛大 Aidai) is a Japanese national university in Matsuyama, Ehime, Japan. The university has one of the largest student populations in the Shikoku region. After Japan's defeat in World War II, Aidai was established in May 1949 among many other national universities by the Japanese government during the reformation of the education system. The university originally had three Faculties : Humanities and Science, Education, and Engineering; which were consolidated from Matsuyama National High School (established 1919), Ehime Prefectural Teachers School (1876), Ehime Prefectural Youth Teachers School (1927), and Ehime Prefectural Niihama Technical School (1939). Today, the university has six faculties and five graduate schools.
