Through this, we hope to develop our students into electrical engineering researchers and technicians with the adaptability needed to succeed in an age which demands both diversity and specialty.

The mechanical engineering program features a curriculum centered on basic subjects, in which students are divided into groups according to their field of research and technology, specialist subjects which delve into the more specialized areas of the relevant fields, and boundary subjects. There is a clear emphasis on practicality so as to enable students to develop deep reserves of humanity and compassion to complement their scientific schooling. Through this, we strive to develop students into expert technicians and researchers who have a strong sense of mission and ethics, a broad general education and a high level of technical ability, as well as the ability to identify problems and the needs of the community, and the capacity to solve them.

The goal of the Master’s Degree Program in architecture is to develop students into richly creative, highly specialized architects by instilling the flexible imagination needed to achieve a holistic approach to architecture as a whole, as well as a high degree of expertise in each student’s particular field. What is more, our distinct brand of education and research is oriented towards producing graduates with an international mindset.

Meanwhile, the goal of the Doctorate Program in architecture is to further boost the expertise fostered through the Master’s Degree Program and to develop students into creative researchers and educators with the ability to play a leading role in pioneering research and development in the community.

The applied chemistry program aims to develop students into scientists and engineers with the broad perspective and creativity that covers all areas of their field from the basics to advanced applications. This is a wide-reaching program that stretches from fundamentals to boundary-pushing, pioneering topics, and is characterized by an approach that merges science and engineering. The curriculum does not concentrate only on the “glamour” subjects such as research into applied technologies that can readily meet the needs and requirements of the chemical industry; it also provides thorough coverage of basic science and other areas that may be less-flashy but are just as important. Through this curriculum, we seek to produce graduates with the flexible, forward-looking imagination needed to spark future growth in science and technology.

The fundamental science and technology program promotes a solid understanding of the laws of nature and the fundamental principles of mathematics, and seeks to develop students into expert professionals and researchers with the wherewithal to apply that broad-based knowledge in an engineering context.

Computer Science Course

The Computer Science Course is aimed at fostering the flexibility of mind and creativity needed to spark a new era of progress. In an age of rapid change, the ability to identify and resolve problems is a vital skill and, in order to develop those abilities in our students, the Computer Science Course starts by reinforcing their knowledge of the basics and builds on that base through a practical, in-depth curriculum of specialized education in students’ fields of expertise.

Another goal of the course is to develop students into expert computer specialists armed with internationally-minded creativity and a broad perspective. It is our aim to develop students’ research and development abilities in their fields of expertise through their research activities so that they may go on to useful, ground-breaking research that leads to results and derivative products heard and seen around the world.

Mathematics Course

The goal of the Mathematics Course is to develop students into researchers in the field of mathematical science and expert professionals with the potential to make a contribution to the community. With a curriculum that covers subjects like mathematical phenomenology in addition to traditional mathematics such as algebra, geometry and calculus, the Mathematics Course has a strong emphasis on mathematical science that is closely linked to society and its needs.

One of our major missions is to train the middle school and high school mathematics teachers of the future. To that end, the Mathematics Course offers a unique style of education and research, carried out through multiple lines and by multiple faculty members, in collaboration with the Meiji Institute for Advanced Study of Mathematical Sciences (MIMS) to ensure that the wonders of mathematics are passed on to the next generation.

Physics Course

The goal of the Physics Course is to foster students’ ability to think logically through education and research in the field of physics. The study of physics has inductive and deductive aspects; it seeks to inductively identify the principles that control natural behavior and to deductively understand phenomena according to the basic physical principles. Through the Physics Course, we encourage people to return to those fundamental principles and consider things from a physics standpoint. At the same time, we aim to produce graduates with wide-ranging viewpoints who can make a contribution to society through the creation and exploitation of knowledge.

The goals of the Graduate Programs in Frontier Sciences and Innovation are several. We aim to nurture students’ basic knowledge in a hybrid combination of arts and sciences, or a cross-sectional selection of different fields of study, and to build on this knowledge base with the specialist knowledge of their chosen fields of study. Through this, we endeavor to develop students into expert professionals and researchers with the ability to work in existing areas, which are becoming increasingly diverse, complex and advanced, as well as in new and uncharted fields.

Program in Safenology

Environmental pollution, rapidly disappearing natural resources, regular infrastructure outages and increasingly vicious crime are problems we face on a global scale—there are numerous urgent issues that need to be addressed to ensure the safety and security of the community. This program, which we have dubbed “safenology,” is comprised of four main areas of study: environmental safety, system safety, urban and architectural safety, and resource and material safety. We aim to develop students into expert professionals and researchers with the ability to make a contribution to the resolution of new social problems through a hybrid program that combines arts and sciences and takes a cross-sectional approach incorporating different fields of study.

Program in Mathematical Business

The development of researchers and re-training of professionals engaged in finance (stock prices, foreign exchange), insurance and pension schemes is one of society’s most urgent requirements of universities to date. The goal of the Program in Mathematical Business is to address these issues through a comprehensive curriculum based on three major areas: mathematical science for finance; the mathematics of insurance and pensions; and probability and statistics. Through these, students learn about stochastic process theory, statistics and the mathematical theories of time series analysis. Using these as the basis, we endeavor to develop students into expert researchers and professionals with the ability to put that knowledge to use in studies based on in-depth analysis of financial, insurance and pension risks.

Program in Digital Content

The Program in Digital Content covers three major fields of research: artistic content, archival content and content criticism. The goal of this program is to develop students into expert professionals in a range of occupations (e.g., media arts, museums and journalism) with a broad base of knowledge and technical skills and editorial abilities that takes from science, engineering, humanities and arts. We seek to add to the workforce with graduates who can create video, audio and other artistic content, make digital archives of intellectual content, and give accurate and productive criticism on a variety of content.
