school graduate school of engineering science
School & Graduate School of Engineering Science
  • The school and Graduate School of Engineering Science are unique in name and character in Japan. Their purpose is to develop scientists with a keen interest in practical technology and engineers with a firm grasp of the basic sciences, who may use their experience to develop new technology.
  • The School of Engineering Science was established in April 1961. In April 1997, the School of Engineering Science was recognized to develop engineering science based on a new concept. The School of Engineering Science is characterized as an institution, which undertakes not only the exploration of novel aspects of engineering that directly reflect modern developments in basic sciences, but the cultivation of new types of engineers and scientists with a creative sense of technology.
