In modern society, there is a demand to develop people who are equipped with broad scientific and technological knowledge, have a well-rounded education in liberal arts, social sciences and other areas, and blaze new trails with insights into the future. In addition, it is also a major calling of the times to reconstruct frameworks and meanings of learning, as well as relationship between studies and applications of them, while at the same time establishing a new era of science and technology.
The Graduate School of Fundamental Science and Engineering implements educational and research activities in respective areas of specialty, revolving around basic scientific technology in key areas of technology that supports society—information, mechanics, aerospace, electronics, materials science, energy, and art & media—pure mathematics that forms the foundations of these areas, and applied mathematics which bridges the two. The aim is to develop researchers and advanced specialist scientific engineers who can not only contribute to the evolution and development of each discipline but also expand into new academic areas with creative ideas, be trailblazers, and play important roles on a global scale.
