Building an innovative energy society
through the synergy of energy science and informatics

We will pioneer the new discipline of "multidimensional energy theory" by restructuring complexly developed energy-related technologies, based on the advanced expertise of each discipline, and integrating them with the multidimensional development of information science. With a focus on resolving ever-changing energy issues, we aim to develop enthusiastic individuals with keen insight and foresight, capable of grasping the essence of issues, independently identifying and solving problems, and demonstrating global leadership skills to drive innovation.

Objectives

Specialists with humanity skills
based on the synergy of energy science and informatics

In the Master's Program, we develop individuals highly specialized in physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or information science, capable of solving energy problems based on information science from a multidimensional energy theory perspective.

In the Doctoral Program, with the theoretical foundations common to the fields of energy science and informatics, and the advanced specialization acquired through the Master's Program, students are expected to discern the underlying nature and universality of energy/information-related phenomena based on systematized, broad, and deep knowledge in the field and information science skills; set and solve new challenges; and demonstrate global leadership.
