The Graduate Major in Materials Science and Engineering curriculum is designed to allow students to learn according to their levels and achievements. Related courses are grouped into categories, enabling students to systematically acquire specialized knowledge.
Building on the fundamental knowledge of materials science and materials engineering acquired in the Undergraduate Program, in the Master's Program, topics related to the composition and physical properties of metals, organic, and inorganic materials that are more advanced and the cutting-edge technologies that are used in these areas are studied systematically. Furthermore, students individually conduct surveys, write research proposals, carry out research, and share findings for the Research Seminars, Research-Related Courses, and master's thesis research. This enables students to strengthen their expertise as well as develop higher levels of creativity, enhance their powers of expression, and improve their ability to grasp the nature of research problems and propose ways of solving them.

Using the broad knowledge and skills of materials science and materials engineering acquired in the Master's Program as a foundation, in the Doctoral Program, students develop practical skills to identify real-world problems on their own and conduct research on these issues. They are also cultivated to understand and systematize trends in research and development from a materials science standpoint as well as to make new, creative proposals while having the integrity to give back to society through the fruits of their research. Therefore, the curriculum is designed to have greater flexibility that allows students to plan their studies by themselves and take courses that satisfy these plans. The curriculum consists of Major Courses through which students can develop skills to make creative research proposals and enhance their powers of expression, Research Seminars through which students can develop their ability to conduct research and systematize research, and Career Development Courses through which they can recognize how and where their research touches society.
