  1. Entrance

    Applicants must pass an entrance examination to advance from an undergraduate major to a master's program.
  2. Master's Program
    (2 Years)*1

    400-Level and 500-Level Courses

    Building on the fundamental knowledge of electrical and electronic engineering learned in the Undergraduate Program, knowledge and technologies related to electromagnetic waves and communication, electric power, integrated circuits, devices, and material properties that are more cutting-edge and based on the newest research can be learned systematically. Furthermore, the curriculum is structured such that students can deepen their specialization and increase their creativity by performing research on their own for the Research Seminars and master's thesis research.

    • Common Courses
      Courses common to different branches of electrical and electronic engineering.
    • Electromagnetic Waves and Communications
      Study courses that encompass everything from the in-depth physics of waves to cutting-edge information technology.
    • Electric Power
      Acquire the fundamental skills necessary to carry out electrical power research that benefits society.
    • Integrated Circuits
      Study cutting-edge technology to create electronic devices that skillfully combine circuit elements.
    • Devices
      Acquire knowledge necessary for the research of high performance devices, devices with new functions, and terahertz devices.
    • Material Properties
      Learn skills necessary for not only improving the properties of semiconductors, magnetic materials, and dielectrics, but also for developing materials with new properties and functions.
    • Research Seminars
      Research seminars and sessions to review and discuss literature held to support students in their master's thesis research.

      assessment to advance from another university to a doctoral program.
  3. Doctoral Program
    (3 Years)*2

    600-Level Courses

    The curriculum for the Doctoral Program is based on the advanced specialized knowledge of electrical and electronic engineering acquired and creative skills developed in the Master's Program. Its structure allows many new skills to be obtained while developing those that have already been acquired. In the doctoral thesis research and Research Seminars, students acquire practical and superior problem defining skills, problem-solving skills, knowledge of specialized fields, and creative skills by carrying out top-level research. Students learn to see things from a global perspective, as well as gain presentation skills and teaching skills through our Research-Related Courses, and in the Graduate Major Courses, students are taught to see things with a broad perspective and understand related areas of study.

    • Graduate Major Courses
      Learn about the various research areas and topics of electrical and electronic engineering, and develop a broad research perspective.
    • Research-Related Courses
      Get practical training, do exercises, etc., related to doctoral thesis research.
    • Research Seminars
      Research seminars and sessions to review and discuss literature held to support students in their doctoral thesis research.
