Our graduate program, which has been newly founded in place of the Frontier Science course in 2012 and offers only for Ph.D. degree (the last three years course), covers the research fields related to Nano-Science and Nano-Technology: They cover materials science under nano-scale structures with computational and experimental means, basic research for designing and development of new materials based on molecular chemistry, fundamental and device-oriented researches with various materials such as semiconductors and ferromagnetic materials, catalyst studies for fuel cells, development of chemical- and bio-sensors, etc.
Prospective students should be well grounded in both Nano-Science and Nano-Technology after the completion of our graduate program and are expected to play a key role in academic and/or industries. Therefore, various opportunities are provided in our program, namely, the collaboration with other research institutes in Tsukuba area, lectures by world-renown researchers, attendance at international conferences, study in abroad for a few months at established schools, etc.
- Students are required to take the following courses; Strategic TechnologyⅠ(1 credit), Seminar under Industry-University CollaborationⅠ,Ⅱ,Ⅲ(1 credit each), Research Proposal (1 credit), Research in Nano-Science and Nano-Technology (total 18 credits).
In addition, they are required to take 2 credits from the following courses; Strategic TechnologyⅡ,Ⅲ(1 credit each), Science and Technology Seminar Ⅰ,Ⅱ,Ⅲ(1 credit each), International InternshipⅠ,Ⅱ,Ⅲ(1 credit each).
- Submit the Doctoral thesis and pass the final examination of the thesis.
The final examination of the doctoral thesis is usually taken at the third year of her/his graduate program. However, an exceptional student who has accomplished important achievements may complete the doctoral program after the first year.
