Creation of Advanced Science and Technology in the Future

The Graduate School of Science and Technology (Doctoral Course) consists of two courses of Advanced Materials Science and Technology and Safety Science and Technology. The former covers the development of useful materials and their application technology and the latter does crisis-controlling technology for natural and human-originating disasters in the highly developed society. Each course aims to cultivate engineers who will be able to solve problems flexibly, with perspective and taking into consideration the whole situation.
