Graduate Study

Graduate studies at the Department of Materials Engineering cover wide variety of materials, the processing of the materials, and devices, structures and systems using the materials. Through the studies and research, the basis of the materials science and engineering is strengthened and professional background as a materials scientist and engineer is developed.

We welcome the application to graduate study course of our department. Those who want to enter the graduate school in spring need to submit the application in July and take the entrance examination in August, September.

For non-Japanese students, there is also a special graduate program offering advanced professional training leading to the degrees of Master of Engineering and Doctor of Engineering (mainly Doctor of Engineering). The program is called IME graduate program, and accepted students are given the unique opportunity of taking a degree from the University of Tokyo with lectures and research conducted completely in English. Also the students who have exceptional academic records are awarded Monbu-Kagakusho scholarship for the whole period of graduate program.
