The Earthquake Engineering Program (EEP) offers courses and research opportunities leading to both Master's and doctoral degrees in Earthquake Engineering. Our graduates find employment in industry, governments and universities and are expected to be highly skilled engineers or researchers who will make significant contributions to earthquake hazard mitigation world-wide.
This is a combined Master's and Doctoral Program, and is considered to be one continuous course of study, which cannot be divided into two separate programs, i.e., even for the student who has already earned Master's degree in the other institution, study has to be started from Master's level at Tokyo Institute of Technology. This combined Master's and Doctoral program can be completed within three to five years.

Scholarships

MEXT Scholarship

The top ten applicants who have applied under Eligibility (A) will be awarded the MEXT scholarship for four years.

  • Students who have been accepted for a MEXT Scholarship will not be required to pay the application, admission, or tuition fees.
  • The MEXT scholarship provides a monthly stipend of JPY 120,000 for undergraduate students. The amount of the stipend is subject to change in accordance with the directives of the MEXT scholarship program.
  • In accordance with MEXT regulations, students will be provided with an economy class air ticket from the international airport closest to their place of residence in their country of nationality to Narita or Haneda International Airport.

NOTE:The applicant will be required to withdraw from the MEXT scholarship if he/she is applying for other MEXT scholarships or a scholarship offered by the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO).
