When a material that didn't exist, a material with entirely new properties is discovered, it can rapidly advance science and technology. This is one of the many great and appealing aspects of studying materials science. The Graduate Major in Materials Science and Engineering at Tokyo Institute of Technology welcomes students with big dreams from various fields and trains them to become materials experts who have successful global careers.
In the Master's Program, we cultivate outstanding individuals who have advanced specialized knowledge of materials science, have the capacity to think logically, and have practical problem-solving skills. They are trained to identify social problems from a wide perspective, thoroughly understand the issues from a scientific and technological standpoint, solve them, and ultimately drive the development of the global industry.
The Doctoral Program cultivates outstanding individuals who contribute to the welfare of humanity through the development of science and technology. They will possess the most advanced specialized knowledge of materials science and make use of this knowledge to promote original and challenging research and development. They are also trained to be aware of global trends, be able to identify the current problems with an international perspective, and take the lead in solving these issues with unique ideas.
