Graduate School of Science and Research Institutes

Building on the three departments in the undergraduate Faculty of Science, the Graduate School of Science offers three courses: Information Sciences, Chemistry, and Biological Sciences. The academic field of science is not only advancing at a rapid pace, but is also undergoing a process of integration and further specialization. In order to respond to these trends, the graduate school aims to educate students making discoveries and inventions that result in technological innovation by utilizing basic scientific theories and applications flexibly.

Graduate School of Science

  • Course of Information Sciences
    Bridging the two fields of information science and experimental/computational science, this course offers education and research in the following three fields: Fundamental Computational Mathematics, Experimental and Computational Science, and Computing Systems Science. The course is designed to foster problem-solving skills and a solid grasp of mathematics and the laws of nature.
  • Course of Chemistry
    In this course, we train students as leaders in chemistry, materials science and related fields through education and research of chemistry from standpoints of Synthesis, and Analysis and Structure. Students study general and specific knowledge of chemistry.
  • Course of Biological Sciences
    In consideration of the hierarchical organization of life phenomena, we conduct education and research in three fields, Molecular Biology, Cellular Biology, and Population Biology. Our flexible curriculum offers students opportunities to study about each of three fields as well as boundary areas where these fields overlap.

Research Institutes

  • Research Institute for Integrated Science
    Taking an integrated approach to the five fields of mathematical, physical, information, chemical and biological sciences, the Research Institute for Integrated Science aims to develop a systematic conception of "scientific knowledge and information". Further it conducts joint research, seminars, symposia and other activities addressing issues across the entire spectrum of science and technology.
  • Research Institute for Photobiological Hydrogen Production
    This institute is working to develop basic technologies for the production of renewable energy sources using photosynthesis, with the ultimate aim of transforming today's fossil fueldependent society into one that is more recycling-oriented and environmentally friendly. [Operating from April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2013)]
