In the spring of 2006, the Graduate School of Science and Technology was formed as a new research graduate school by integrating the teaching staff of the Faculty of Science and that of the Faculty of Engineering to conduct post-graduate education with a strong focus on research. The departments in the Graduate School are divided into two groups. The first group consists of 17 departments in the Master’s course and the Doctoral course, all of which aim to conduct research and education to help develop specialized knowledge and expertise obtained from the Faculties of Science and Engineering. The second group comprises 1 department in New Frontier Science. Here, we mean to conduct cutting-edge research and education with an increased emphasis on interdisciplinary concepts through continuation of the Master’s and Doctoral courses.
The goal of the Graduate School of Science and Technology is to instill understanding and knowledge in students through interdisciplinary and integrated education and research, as well as to nurture individuals who are able to approach problems arising from a wide range of complex issues with leadership and creativity.
