Master’s Program (taught in Japanese)
Graduate School of Science was established with two small courses of physics and chemistry in 1965.
In 2004 and 2006, it was extended and reconstructed as Graduate School of Science and Technology by adding the courses of bioscience and informatics, respectively, to cover research on applied engineering as well as fundamental research in natural science.
Afterwards, courses of mathematical science and human system interaction were added for exploring wider research fields.
The Graduate School of Science and Technology's basic creed is "Conduct advanced research into the basic principles and applications of natural science in order to contribute to human progress."
Under this creed, active research and education are promoted with modern facilities.
In the master's program, students have chances to attend international conferences, to improve their communication skills in English and to develop their international mind. We have research collaborations with other organizations:
National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (JASRI/SPring-8), RIKEN, and so on, to activate our research and education and to make substantial results.
We have received many top awards including the one from the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in Japan, which illustrates the outstanding level of our research.
In the program, in addition to completing a four-semester course over a two-year period (basic requirement), students conduct thesis research on a specific theme and complete a master's thesis.
We offer chances for foreign students to learn and study in Japan, and also open our courses to the persons who are working at industrial companies or educational organizations.
In the School, There are many students and researchers from overseas:
Satyawachana University in Indonesia, Jilin University in China and so on.
Furthermore, the school offers a special international program in which all the lectures are given in English.
