Diploma and Curriculum Policies of the Graduate School of Science and Engineering (Engineering)
The philosophy of the Master's Program of the Graduate School of Science and Engineering (Engineering) is to cultivate deep knowledge and a perspective wider than undergraduates' and raise people backed by advanced expertise and research and technical skills in their specialty fields with an eye to developing the ability to break new ground in line with social situations and industrial structure change of the 21st century. The Doctoral Programs aim at fostering people with research and development abilities needed to engage in highly specialized research and education of international standards.
The Master's Program confers a master's degree on people who have completed the curriculum, passed the master's thesis screening and examination and acquired the following skills and knowledge:
- A deep knowledge of their own specialty fields and the ability to apply it at will in fields ranging from basic to advanced engineering
- A wide knowledge of technology related to their specialty fields and the ability to apply it
- The abilities of logical thinking and description to deal with the development and diversification of science and technology, presentation and discussion and international information gathering
- The curriculum systematically offers subjects ranging from the basics to the state-of-the-art areas of specialties.
- It includes experiments and seminars where students read papers of their specialty fields in foreign languages and present their research and survey results at academic meetings and in papers. Subjects that students take at partner universities can be recognized as credits.
- The curriculum is compiled in such a way as to allow students to exercise their abilities in society after graduation.
The Doctoral Program awards a doctoral degree to students who have passed the doctoral dissertation screening and examination and acquired the following abilities in addition to the above skills and knowledge:
- The ability to find academic and technical problems, understand their significance deeply and verify hypotheses through research, analysis and formulation
- The ability to use an innovative method for problem solving and fully exercise creativity
In addition to the curriculum poliy for Master's Program, the Doctoral Program provides the following education and research environment:
- Experiments and seminars where students set their academic and technical tasks by themselves, use new principles and methods to solve them
- Subjects designed to broaden students' view on engineering and cultivate their ability to raise and solve problems on industrial sites, various research facilities and laboratories of fields other than their own specialties
