Major & Course
Major in Advanced Mathematics and Physics
*Master's program in Physics Course is only available for Japanese-based students. (Medium of Instruction: Japanese)
Mathematics and physics require an exceptionally high level of versatility in comparison to other academic fields within science and engineering. In terms of education and research, mathematics and physics continue to become more essential elements of the ever expanding range of academic fields. These areas are not limited by a scientific framework, but are highly related to all fields, including anthropology, society, and economics studies, as these various fields are interrelated and have contribute to each others' development. Examples of this phenomenon include the role that mathematical sciences has played in the fields of finance and information security, as well as the collaboration of physics and engineering fields in energy issues and nanotechnology.

Major in Advanced Electrical, Electronic and Computer Systems
Modern electrical engineering plays a significant role in everyday life, as exemplified by society's dependence on devices and technologies such as satellite communications, broadcasting, medical systems, electricity, traffic systems, energy conversion technology, computers, A/V systems, and mobile phones. The proliferation of solar energy generation and the use of laser optics in high-speed communications, optical recording, and optical input/output demonstrate the increased relationship between electrical and optical engineering, as well. This program allows students to deepen their knowledge in these fields and apply their research to meet society's increasing demand for, the development of high-performance and large-scale electrical/information systems for use in automobiles, home information appliances, communications, microminiature medical devices, and other technologies that cannot be realized solely with software.

Major in Advanced Architectural, Environmental and Civil Engineering
Human life is not protected by medicine alone. Urban infrastructure also plays a critical role in assuring public safety. There is greater demand than ever before for experts in the field of engineering to work with other fields to solve the environmental problems of the 21st century, and to create a new atmosphere of positive action. With the end of Japan's era of high economic growth and the aging of Japanese society, the country has experienced an outcry for buildings and cities that are not dedicated only to efficiency, but focused on comfort and quality of life features, such as accessibility, as well as environmental considerations.
