Tokyo Tech launched its International Graduate Program in October 2007 as an opportunity for qualified international students, who may have little or no knowledge of the Japanese language, to enroll in Tokyo Tech’s Master’s or Doctoral Programs and pursue an advanced degree in Japan.
With a diverse group of academic departments participating in this program, students should be able to find a department in which to further their research, acquire broader knowledge and understanding, and conduct advanced long-term research in a field that best matches their interests and background.
There is no Japanese language requirement for this program as lectures and seminars are held in English. However, students are given opportunities to attend Japanese language classes on a regular basis in order to better adapt to daily life in Japan.
A limited number of students with outstanding academic records are eligible to apply for a scholarship from Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (“MEXT”) with a recommendation from Tokyo Tech.
The International Graduate Program offers a choice of seven English-language based curricular programs related to the 13 departments of Tokyo Tech and enables students to obtain a Master’s or Doctoral degree. There are two types of programs: the Integrated Doctoral Education Program and Master’s Program. Some curricular programs are set up as an Integrated Doctoral Education Program, designed to combine the Master’s Program and Doctoral Program so that graduate students can obtain both degrees within three to five years.
Applicants are required to specify their choice of program from among those listed below:
- 1)Super Smart Society Engineering Program
- 2)Program for Highly-skilled Professionals for a Smart Society Supported by Advanced Materials and Chemical Technology : SSMCT
- 3)International Graduate Program on Applied Artificial Intelligence and Cyber-Security
- 4)International Graduate Program for Life Science and Technology
- 5)Postgraduate Program for Multinational Architects in Conjunction wiith Engineering and Urban Design
- 6)International Program on Earthquake Engineering
- 7)Global Engineering Program for Inclusive Society and Sustanable Environment
