The Department of Electronics and Bioinformatics seeks students who not only possess the qualities described in the admission policy (AP) of the School of Science and Technology, but also have a strong desire to be active at the forefront of technology in a new age when people expect technological innovations to sustain human life, the environment and energy. We also welcome students who proactively study with a sense of purpose and are independent, bright, active and trusted by their friends. Prospective students should have a fundamental knowledge of mathematics, science and foreign languages, which students must learn in high school, along with adequate learning skills to handle application issues as well.
Through the Admissions Office (AO) Entrance Examination, we select students placing an emphasis on their latent potential to realize the future vision mentioned above. Applicants for the AO Entrance Examination are required to provide a logical explanation in clear terms.
[Department of Mechanical Engineering]
Intending to cultivate independent and creative engineers , the Department of Mechanical Engineering accepts students with basic academic skills and willingness to make scientific and technological contributions to society. After enrollment, students are required to display an active attitude by studying proactively, thinking for themselves, discussing issues with people around them and taking on new challenges. Accordingly, students with a habit of continuous learning and experiences of group work, etc. are welcomed.
The General Entrance Examination evaluates students’ basic academic skills, whereas oral and other examinations of the Recommendation Entrance Examination and the comprehensive entrance examination evaluate their basic academic skills, motivation and study habit in a comprehensive manner.
[Department of Mechanical Engineering Informatics]
In order to solve problems faced by modern society and realize a society where people can live a spiritually rich life in the future, a wide range of technologies defying the boundaries of conventional mechanical engineering as well as young engineers capable of creating and applying such technologies are necessary. The educational philosophy of the Department of Mechanical Engineering Informatics is--by creating an environment where students can learn not only mechanical engineering, the basis for hardware technologies, but also various software technologies--to nurture engineers aiming to achieve technological innovation by giving concrete shape to their unique ideas on their own. In other words, we cultivate mechanical engineering technicians and researchers who are able to develop innovative technology from a new perspective, thereby making a significant contribution to society. The types of students to whom we will offer admission through different types of examinations are described below.

The objective of these types of examinations is to select competent students with basic academic skills coupled with applied and development skills, who are likely to acquire adequate abilities in the future that can be applied to technological problem solving. Furthermore, by adding “biology” to the subjects of the All-Faculties Entrance Examination, and “biology” and “geology” to those of the Entrance Examination using the National Center Test for University Admissions, we also look for students who have natural science knowledge and care about human beings, society, and nature. The admission decision is made based on the total score of exam subjects for each entrance examination.
(2) Admissions Office (AO) Entrance Examination
This examination gives exam takers a simple theme in advance and asks them to independently devise an experimental method regarding it, perform experiments, write a paper about the experiment results, and make a presentation on and discuss the contents of the paper, with the objective of selecting students who are very good at planning ahead, have effective communication skills and the capacity to think flexibly, and who show spirit in becoming part of a leading group of the Department after enrollment. The admission decision is made based on an evaluation of the interview.

The admission decision is made based on an evaluation of the interview.
(4) Recommendation Entrance Examination (attached high schools)
The objective of this examination is to select, from among students from Meiji University Meiji High School, Nakano Senior High School Attached to Meiji University and Nakano Hachioji High School Attached to Meiji University, those with an especially strong interest in the Department of Mechanical Engineering Informatics and high scholastic ability who will make efforts to realize the founding spirits of Meiji University: “Rights and Liberty, Independence and Self-government” and be able to think about the relationship between the individual and society in a comprehensive manner and develop their own ideas while respecting other people’s positions and points of view in the future. The admission decision is made based on an evaluation of the interview.
(5) Sports Special Entrance Examination
The objective of this examination is to select, from students who have a strong track record in sports, those with an especially strong interest in the Department of Mechanical Engineering Informatics who have the potential to learn the founding spirits of Meiji University: “Rights and Liberty, Independence and Self- government”, nurture the spirits through sports activities, balance sports and studies, and become a person who makes a significant contribution to society. The admission decision is made based on an evaluation of the interview.
(6) Entrance Examination for International Students
The objective of this examination is to select international students with adequate academic ability to study in the Department of Mechanical Engineering Informatics who are likely to adopt flexible ways of viewing the world through cultural exchange with Japanese students and have an intention and practical ability to play active roles in the global arena going forward. The admission decision is made based on the results of Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU), and an essay and interview (only for applicants who take the entrance examination in Japan).
[Department of Architecture]
The Department of Architecture seeks students with a strong interest in and enthusiasm for architecture and related fields who are bright and have a promising future, as well as those who are active enough to lead their friends in the Department on their own initiative. We want to nurture talented people who possess technical knowledge and excellent design ability, those who have a multidisciplinary perspective and are able to deal with various issues in a flexible manner, and those who have acquired a cosmopolitan way of thinking, so that they can work actively on the front lines and on the international stage of not only the building design field, but also broader environmental design fields in the future.
The Department of Architecture accepts students from diverse backgrounds including international students and returned students. However, to facilitate learning in the Department of Architecture, we hope that students will have acquired the following abilities and skills prior to admission:
