Graduate School of Science and Technology

HOME > Introduction > Organization




Five major programs encompassing a broad range of science and technology
  The Graduate School of Science and Technology consists of five major programs: Fundamental Sciences; Advanced Materials Science and Technology; Electrical and Information Engineering; Life and Food Sciences; and Environmental Science and Technology, promoting interdisciplinary studies among research areas of science, engineering and agriculture.
  We are a segment-type graduate school of doctoral programs, consisting of Master’s and Doctoral programs. Students who complete the first two-year term and the second three-year term of the programs will be respectively awarded a master's degree and a doctoral degree.
  In addition to the five-year consistent postgraduate education, we offer various study periods, such as a two-year or three-year program for some international students and working adult students.

Education and Reseach Facilities

Well-equipped research facilities support staff
