Graduate School of Science and Technology (GSST)

After restructuring in 2006, the Graduate School of Science and Technology became a new research graduate school to conduct post-graduate education with a strong focus on research. GSST now covers 5 departments in the Master’s Course and 2 departments in the Doctoral Course. With rapid globalization in international communities, it has become vitally important to promote international collaboration with overseas universities, both in research and education, as well as collaboration with graduate schools, industry and government institutions in Japan, to be able to provide an international and interdisciplinary environment for the students.

We are committed to fostering students who can approach problems arising out of a wide range of complex issues with leadership and creativity, and to making GSST an international institution marked by the active creation of knowledge and the free exchange of ideas.
 

Institution

Global Joint Education Center for Science and Technology (GJEC)


For the future of graduate education, we need to promote globalization and to foster individuals with greater innovation skills through science and technology. To achieve this goal, it is vital that students add depth to their basic skills in their field of specialization and that their innovative skills are applied with a wider vision. The Global Joint Education Center for Science and Technology (GJEC) was established in GSST in April 2007, and allows students to take courses in different fields to develop innovation skills. In GJEC, we also provide Advanced General Education subjects. These subjects provide students with a broad knowledge of topics across the fields of science and technology, and enhance their application of future academic skills in society.
