Examination Content

[Master’s course]

The entrance examination is based on the Foreign Language (English) by submitting the official score of TOEFL iBT or TOEFL iBT Home Edition, the written examination (regular education subjects and fundamentals of materials), and the oral examination. The entrance examination for the master’s program is conducted with the same subjects for all examinees.

[Doctoral course]

The entrance examination is based on the Foreign Language (English) by submitting the official score of TOEFL iBT or TOEFL iBT Home Edition, the written examination (fundamentals of materials), and the oral examination. The contents of the tests are as shown in the table below. However, for those who have completed or are expected to complete the master’s program in the Department of Mining and Metallurgy, Department of Metallurgical Engineering, Department of Materials Science, and Department of Materials Engineering, the Foreign Language (English) and the written examination will be omitted. For those who have completed or are expected to complete the master’s program at the other departments of Graduate School of Engineering, the University of Tokyo, the Foreign Language (English) will be omitted. The problems in the written examination are the same as those for the Master’s course.
In the Environment Management Engineering Course, we are recruiting company employees who wish to be enrolled on the theme of environmental management and related research. (Refer to the attached table at the end of the Guide to Entrance Examination (PDF))
Applicants for the Doctoral program should contact the possible supervisor of interest in advance and gain approval for the supervision by the time the application is submitted, and explain the reason for the application upon the oral examination.
