Materials Science and Engineering

  Materials Science and Engineering is an important discipline that develops materials for various applications. It is a key engineering field that supports social infrastructure in areas as diverse as information / telecommunications, construction, transportation, energy, the environment, medicine and welfare. Our program is jointly operated by the Graduate School of Pure and Applied Sciences and the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS). Prominent scientists from NIMS join with the graduate school faculty to supervise students' research towards a Ph.D. degree.
  Students can take advantage of the world-class facilities and equipment to participate in state-of-the-art research activities in NIMS, whilst gaining a broader perspective through interacting with researchers from overseas.

  This program is available for the doctoral course only; however, students may also obtain a Masters degree under supervision of our faculty members by enrolling in the Materials Science and Engineering Course included in other programs of the graduate school: Physics, Chemistry, Frontier Science, Applied Physics, and Materials Science.

Requirements for the Degree Program
  Students should obtain all of the following credits: Seminar in Materials Science and Engineering (total 2 credits), and Research on Materials Science and Engineering (total 18 credits) and then submit a doctoral thesis. Those who pass the thesis evaluation and a final examination will be conferred a Ph. D. degree in Engineering. It is possible to complete the Doctoral Program after one year at the shortest case for students with exceptional achievements.
