I. Introduction to the Master’s Program 1. Admission Policy In the Master’s Program of the Graduate School, we foster students’ abilities to respond to new facets of society with the professionalism of specialists and to contribute to society by making use of that expertise as an immediate asset. To that end, we admit the following types of individuals. -Those who share in the principles and goals of the Master’s Program, Graduate School of Engineering and Science -Those who have the basic and specialized knowledge of an undergraduate, a desire to improve, a boundless curiosity, and the desire to take on any challenge. -Those who respect the ethics of engineering.

Today, it is impossible to construct advanced engineering systems without using technologies from computer sciences. In response to the societal demand for electrical, electronic, information, and communications-related technologies as an industrial foundation, the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Course accepts prospective students with the following characteristics The Course provides education and research guidance in order to nurture outstanding engineers and researchers in acquiring global perspectives, a wide range of values, and sophisticated general education, as well as developing the abilities to contribute to the regeneration of Japan as a technology-oriented nation.

Materials have always played an important role in human society. Going forward, the importance of materials in social-infrastructure technology continues to increase. Along with the recent development of the advanced science field, the field of materials science and engineering is also diversifying in the ways in which professionals tackle the key issue of enhancing the high functionality of materials without creating any environmental load. For the development of modern scientific technology, one of the most important foundations is to conduct scientific work on materials or to pursue superior materials based on the relevant social background. The Materials Science and Engineering Course seeks the following characteristics from prospective students. Prospective students: - Are sympathetic to the educational philosophy of the Materials Science and Engineering Course and have a motivation to improve their basic skills in natural sciences and social sciences, which form the basis of materials science and engineering. - Have an interest in the basic theory and the application of technologies composing materials science and engineering and demonstrate an imaginative ability, unrestricted by existing concepts, with the spirit of inquiry and a sense of curiosity. - Are willing to engage with a wide range of materials, understand conventional material creation and material development as well as the evaluation of physical properties, and seek more

advanced studies in materials science and engineering. - Have an interest in the connection between humans and materials and, rooted in a desire to convey conventional technologies and new knowledge regarding materials science and engineering, have the practical ability to disseminate and hand down that knowledge using strong communication skills. - Consider social contribution based on a global-scale vision and are enthusiastically willing to disseminate technologies and science to society based on advanced materials science and engineering.

The Applied Chemistry Course strives to foster superior human resources as scientists or engineers who can thrive in international society with not only extensive chemistry skills but also a broad culture and exceptional skills for discovering, exploring, and solving problems, as well. The Applied Chemistry Course welcomes the following types of students. - A student who has acquired basic knowledge and skills in general science and engineering, which form the basis of chemistry. - A student who can try to discover and to solve problems with chemistry skills. - A student who is able to participate in activities related to chemistry with a sense of cooperation, responsibility, and social standards.

The Mechanical Engineering Course accepts prospective students who have the following characteristics and provides its students with education and research guidance: Prospective students: - Have an intellectual curiosity about various issues in engineering and science and a motivation to use their expertise in mechanical engineering to help respond to social needs regarding the environment, safety, security, and convenience. - Have the potential to acquire insight for identifying and establishing mechanical engineering problems based on various needs, the logical-thinking skills to plan approaches for solving these problems, and the determination and practical ability to perform and respond in a flexible way based on such plans. - Have knowledge in basic natural sciences, such as mathematics and physics, and specialized knowledge and practical abilities in materials/structural mechanics, fluid, and heat/energy. - Have the potential to acquire the knowledge and practical ability for using foreign languages, which will enable them to participate in international academic exchanges. - Have the ethics of an engineer and the potential to advance research in collaboration with fellow colleagues.

The Architecture and Civil Engineering Course provides education and research guidance to nurture engineers who will engage in the building of the human life environment, which involves

working on the land, regions, cities and architecture. This course seeks prospective students who have completed specialized education in different departments at an undergraduate level as their foundation, have developed a broad perspective on society to which technologies will be applied, and demonstrate a motivation for acquiring in-depth knowledge, skills, and findings from their respective specialized fields. In its future training of graduate students, the Architecture and Civil Engineering Course will focus mainly on the following four areas, which can be further categorized into a more detailed research guidance system. - Engineers who are engaged in architecture- and urban-related design and planning. - Engineers who are engaged in research related to architectural history or the repair and conservation of old architecture. - Engineers who are engaged in design, planning, and research related to architecture, urban structures, the environment, and production. The Course has constructed its entrance examination, curriculum, and policy and system of this course up to the point of completing a Master’s thesis in light of these areas. Faculty members in the Course teach in four different undergraduate Departments and one Course. In this Course, however, they form cross-departmental groups to provide research guidance, and the subjects offered to students after their enrolment are composed also based on these cross-departmental groups. Cosmopolitanism and expertise: Both broad perspectives and language proficiency are vital to the realization of cosmopolitanism, the concept on which this university is focusing, and the Course structure reflects that focus.

The Systems Engineering and Science Course, featuring cross-disciplinary education and research, seeks prospective students with the following characteristics. Prospective students: - Have interests in the mechanisms and structures of the various things and events around them, engage with them in deep inquiry, and have an interest in clarifying problems. - Have interests in exercise-based subjects, which are beyond the disciplinary framework of the Systems Engineering and Science Course and involve working on tasks in a team consisting of students from other specialized fields. They will also be subjective and have a strong motivation to pursue active learning. - Have an intention to contribute to society through engagement in manufacturing and creating new frameworks with added values that emphasize the connections among the elements comprising the overall system.

Aiming to foster advanced, independent engineers or scientists with a global mindset and critical thinking skills, the Global Course of Engineering and Science requires prospective students to

have the following abilities, disposition, and skills. 1.

Good communication skills in English (TOEIC [or TOEIC-equivalent] test score equal to or higher than 550 is mandatory).
