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.
