Undergraduate Schools

Under the Ideal of Education “Independence of Learning”,  Waseda University accepts a large number of highly motivated students with “enterprising spirits”, the Waseda’s motto,  having a high level of academic competences as well as full of intellectual curiosity from not only Japan but also around the world.

While the regions of science and technology expand dramatically in recent years, each region is differentiated and deepened.
Educational and research system at Waseda University has been developing in response to these changes.
While fields of specialize have been growing, new scientific and technology field and academic field are needed to be explored with creating new sense of values.
We are forced to provide educational and research system to foster students capable of thinking and acting globally and opening up a new world of this age.
School of Fundamental Science and Engineering seeks for students of high ability who are grounded in science and engineering knowledge such as math in addition to humanities and social sciences knowledge, and wish to learn the basis of science and technology, mathematical sciences, computer sciences, materials science, electronic and photonic sciences, and intermedia engineering and to work actively on new academic fields as well.

English-based programs are offered at Departments with ◯ in the box of International Program as shown in the chart below.

Japanese-based Program Major Subjects Offered
Mathematics Pure mathematics comprising algebra, geometry, and mathematical analysis, and applied mathematics including statistics, probability, and numerical analysis.
Applied Mathematics Applied mathematics to study natural and society phenomena through analysis, statistics, and probability, numerical analysis, numerical simulation, and information theory
Applied Mechanics and Aerospace Engineering ×
Japanese-based Program only
Students study fundamental mechanical engineering principles and their applications. Primary areas of study include thermo fluids, design, precision machinery, materials for machinery, control systems, aeronautics, and space.
Electronic and Physical Systems Students take courses designed to help them gain a basic understanding of electronics, photonics, and system engineering. Our laboratory courses and interdisciplinary research projects give students a wide perspective and a sense for manufacturing.
Computer Science and Engineering Computer architecture, software engineering, programming, information networks, signal processing, and radio engineering
Communications and Computer Engineering Communication networks, radio engineering, signal processing, circuit theory, information systems, multimedia engineering
Intermedia Art and Science Students study art, design, music, intermedia art and science, technology(including cyber theater, 3D imaging, and sound), and project management. They also gain valuable experience working in collaborative projects with industry.

Graduate Schools and Departments

In accordance with our educational ideal of independence of scholarship, Waseda University accepts a large number of highly motivated students from not only Japan but also around the world, who embody the Waseda philosophy of having an enterprising spirit coupled with a high level of academic ability and voracious intellectual curiosity.

The fields of science and technology have expanded dramatically in recent years, and the individual areas within each field have also become more defined and in depth. Although Waseda University’s educational and research network has developed concurrently with these changes, we are living in an era where the emergence of speciality fields demands the simultaneous creation of new values and novel spheres in science and technology, as well as the cultivation of additional academic areas.

Consequently, universities are being called on to provide education and research that will foster students who can think and act globally, and pave the way forward in shaping a new era.

The Graduate School of Fundamental Science and Engineering offers department-based courses for learning and research in a wide range of speciality fields from the mathematics underlying science and technology to mechanical science, materials science, electronic and physical systems, computer science and communications engineering, and intermedia art. We are seeking motivated students who will not only help to further develop and deepen knowledge in these existing fields, but who are also aiming to become researchers and highly specialized scientific engineers with the skills and drive to work creatively in new areas.
