Shaping our students

We train high-tech engineers and researchers who learn in-depth knowledge of specialized disciplines and obtain a broad-based education that enables them to meet the needs and expectations of the community and international society.

Educational objectives

The graduate school provides a T-style of education in which specialized courses and courses in relevant new emerging areas (the vertical bar of the T) are combined with broad-ranging general courses enabling students to better contribute and meet the needs of society (the cross bar of the T), while nurturing individuals who exhibit creative energy, self solving ability, and communication skills.

Type of students we are looking for

The graduate school is looking to admit students

  • who are passionately committed to the pursuit of new knowledge and truth in the natural sciences,
  • who never give up and are self-motivated and challenged to take on tough issues, and
  • who demonstrate leadership coupled with a cooperative spirit in dealing with all kinds of situations.

Admission Policy

Department of Nanovision Technology

A new research field will be created by uniting the engineers of image science and researchers of nanoscience. The nano field control of individual photon and electron will be introduced for the first time in the world in the image science, which will be called “Nanovision Science”. The objective of creating this field will be to rear students so that they will be able to contribute strongly in the development of industries as engineers and researchers. They will be judged on the basis of their ability, academic achievement, suitability, etc.

Department of Optoelectronics and Nanostructure Science

The aim of the department is to develop your professional capabilities to innovate in future technologies and to take part in the initiative activities based on controlling of materials function and interaction between photons and nanostructure materials in the field of expanding industry such as communication, measurements and chemical industries thorough a knowledge of fundamental sciences and applying them to their practical purposes. The applicants are required to provide their ability, scholarship and aptitude for achieving the admission policy.

Department of Information Science and Technology

Department of Information Science and Technology aims based on informatics, engineering and basic sciences to educate specialized researchers who develop novel basic information technologies and advanced engineers of information systems with outstanding abilities of information techniques. Applicants are examined from the view point of academic abilities for the policy.

Department of Environment and Energy System

The application of basic principles and equations dealing with water, air, and solid and hazardous wastes; material and energy balances; and chemical and biogeochemical cycles for solving environmental issues. Topics include synthesis courses of water treatment, environmental change and biogeochemical cycles, analysis of ecosystems, geomicrobiology, CO2 sequestration, and environmental legislation. Our goal is new innovative science and technology, through lectures and discussions linking a broad range of scientific and engineering topics.

Department of Biosciences

The department provides education and training to the students by conducting frontier researchesdirected to basic bioscience and biotechnology, on the basis of cell biology, developmental biology, integrative biology, biophysics, microbiology, genomics, biotechnology, bioorganic chemistry, food science, and bioinformatics, being expected to take the initiative in the academic and scientific research leaders with entrepreneurship in the new bioindustrial areas.
