We, at the Graduate School of Science and Technology, offer a brand of education and research that seeks to merge science and engineering by promoting an understanding of the laws of nature and mathematical structures and applying that knowledge to the ongoing development and happiness of humankind. To achieve this, we have a curriculum centered on basic subjects taught with subsequent application in mind, applied subjects based on fundamental theory, and boundary subjects designed to encourage broad application in a variety of fields.
Our goal is to train students into expert researchers and professionals whose skills are not only confined to science and technology but who have the extensive range of abilities which are required to work in a cross-section of fields, including social and human sciences. We wish to develop graduates who not only relish the challenges of keeping up with the times and working in new fields but who also have deep reserves of humanity and compassion to complement their internationally viable scientific capabilities.
[Note] All Master's programs are conducted in Japanese except for I-AUD Program in Graduate School of Science and Technology.
Electrical Engineering Program
The Electrical Engineering Program seeks to provide students with a solid bedrock of specialist electrical engineering knowledge and to build on that base with a range of specialized subjects relevant to the field. We aim to produce graduates who have a high degree of scientific sensibility and creativity, who have the expert technical skills needed to play a leading role in the workforce in a variety of fields, and who have a strong sense of individuality. Indeed, it is our goal to give students a steadfast foundation of electrical engineering from a big-picture perspective and adding those fundamentals with a unique brand of education and research that fuses the highly specialized fields of science and engineering. Through this, we hope to develop our students into electrical engineering researchers and technicians with the adaptability needed to succeed in an age that demands both diversity and specialty.
Mechanical Engineering Program
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 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.
Architecture and Urbanism Program
The goal of the Master’s Program 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 orient towards producing graduates with an international mindset.
Meanwhile, the goal of the Doctoral 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.
Applied Chemistry Program
The Applied Chemistry Program aims to develop students into scientists and engineers with a broad perspective and creativity that covers all areas of their fields from the basics to advanced applications. It is a wide-reaching program that stretches from fundamentals to boundary-pushing, pioneering topics, characterized by an approach that merges science and engineering. The curriculum not only focuses on the "glamour" subjects such as researches applicable to technology in which it meets the needs of the chemical industry but also provides thorough coverage of basic science and other areas that may seem less-flashy but just as important. Through this curriculum, we seek to produce graduates with flexible, forward-looking imagination needed to spark future growth in science and technology.
Computer Science Program
The Computer Science Program aims at fostering the flexibility of mind and creativity vital to spark a new era of progress. In an age of rapid change, the ability to identify and resolve problems is an essential skill. To develop those abilities in our students, the Computer Science Program 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. We aim to advance 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.
The goal of the Mathematics Program is to develop students into researchers in the field of mathematical science and expert professionals with the potential to contribute 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 Program 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 future middle school and high school mathematics teachers. To that end, the Mathematics Program offers a unique style of education and research, carried out through numerous 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.
