Leading Graduate Schools

Program for Leading Graduate Schools

"The Program for Leading Graduate Schools," was established in 2011. The project was designed for the purpose of guiding outstanding students to be globally active leaders in industry, academia and government, with wide vision and creativity. The program thus aims to reform graduate school education to provide qualified doctoral degree program of global level, not entangled in industry, academia and government only.

Through these programs, which cover all the 18 departments at school of engineering, we hope to establish a new learning environment.
