Under its educational principle of the “Independence of Scholarship,” Waseda University would like to welcome many students, from both Japan and abroad, who have reached a certain level of basic academic skills and have a great deal of intellectual curiosity, that are filled with the Waseda Enterprising Spirit and are highly motivated for learning.
As the realm of science and technology has expanded exponentially in recent years, individual areas have accordingly differentiated and evolved. Educational and research systems of universities have also gone through transformations in response to this. At the same time as the advancement of specialized areas, however, we have entered a new era where we are required more than ever to create new values and explore new areas of science and technology, and academic disciplines.
Consequently, The Graduate School of Fundamental Science and Engineering would like to admit people who can think and act globally and blaze new trails to the future. For the master’s program, students are required to have basic knowledge, abilities, and the spirit of inquiry to master specialized areas that form the core of science and technology, such as mathematical science, mechanical science, aerospace engineering, materials science, electronic physics, computer engineering, communications and intermedia art. For the doctoral course, students are required to have advanced knowledge, abilities, pioneering spirit, and ethics not only to contribute to the evolution and development of each of these specialized areas but also to expand into new academic areas with innovative ideas.
