The Graduate School of Science and Technology is a segment-type graduate school of doctoral programs, consisting of a two-year first term (“master ’s program”) and a three-year second term (“doctoral program”), with special emphasis on consistent postgraduate education during a continuing five-year term. The educational principal is not restricted to the preconceptions of the fields. The teaching staff from different fields cooperate to educate and guide students. In addition to majoring in a specific field, the educational principle of the Graduate School encourages students to pursue interdisciplinary studies to acquire broad-field based knowledge and develop their creative thinking abilities. The aim of educational and research activities at the Graduate School is not restricted to educating students to be successful researchers. We also aim to foster individuals who can solve problems in their field of research, and to thereby meet the increasing demands of society in terms of advanced and diversified science, culture and technology.
