The Graduate School of Science and Technology established its masters program in 1993 and its doctoral program in 1995. Following on from and developing the ideal and goal of the undergraduate school, which is “to value harmony between science and humanity, to respond to the societal demands of the present age and to educate professionals needed by society,” the graduate school aims to educate internationally-minded engineers and researchers with a humane and global vision as well as social responsibility based on Buddhist ethics. In this favorable environment, with state-of-the-art facilities, each professor, who collaborates with graduate students, enjoys high prestige in the academic world. They are also positively working on joint and contract research projects in both the private and public sector. Cutting-edge research is conducted in the various research centers on campus, where graduate students contribute greatly to the advancement of projects.
