Through research and development in Life Engineering, a field of engineering concerned with areas such as human health, medicine and the environment, we aim to enrich the lives of people. We are working to build a foundation for human life that allows for sustainable development as well as to create new academic fields by blending natural science related to people, bioethics, the fundamentals of health and medicine, and the fundamentals of environment with various specialized technologies of science and engineering.

Together with developing specialized abilities in science and engineering and basic academic ability to deeply understand people and society, in the Master's Program, we aim to cultivate individuals who have a wide perspective and ability to think about things in depth, have comprehensive decision-making skills, and have a solid sense of both ethics and technology. Furthermore, they will have an international outlook and have the ability to identify and solve cutting-edge technology development and academic research problems.
In addition to developing specialized knowledge to understand people and society in depth, in the Doctoral Program, we aim to cultivate individuals who have advanced and cross-disciplinary expertise in science and engineering. They will have the creativity and international leadership skills to promote unique, challenging, and cutting-edge research and development that will break new ground.

Using the specialized knowledge of fields that were acquired in the Undergraduate Program as a foundation, the curriculum allows students to systematically learn common specialized knowledge and techniques required for cutting-edge research and development of life engineering. It is also structured to allow students to gain advanced specialized knowledge and skills by building on the specialized knowledge and skills that were developed in the Undergraduate Program. Furthermore, it is designed to allow students to deepen their expertise and creativity by conducting their own research through the Research Seminars, Master's Thesis Research Planning Theory course, and master's thesis research.
