About IPS

Overview

01Waseda University Graduate School of Information, Production and Systems (IPS) is a graduate school that has no corresponding undergraduate department established within the Kitakyushu Science and Research Park area in 2003 as the base for Waseda University to expand its presence in Asia. With three fields of study, including Information ArchitectureProduction System, and Integrated Systems, IPS undertakes academic research in the technological fields that society currently requires, and strives to attain a sustainable society through the use of technology.

Educational Research

03Having immediately implemented lectures both in Japanese and English for all courses at the time of its establishment, IPS has been creating an environment where international students par excellence can also study along with Japanese students. IPS actively conducts numerous joint research projects with various domestic and international organizations, such as corporations and universities, and participates in many public projects.

Life

学生cafe - コピーThe city of Kitakyushu, where IPS is located, has long been thriving as an exchange hub in Asia due to its ideal location. While it is a globally and technologically oriented city, it offers an environment in which residents can fully enjoy rich nature. Living expense is not as high as in the Tokyo metropolitan area, allowing residents to live a comfortable life.
In addition, IPS offers various types of well-developed scholarship programs, supporting about 70% of the students.

Career path after graduation

DSC04596There is a broad array of employers, both domestic and international, in areas such as electric, semiconductor and automobile manufacturing, and information-telecommunication services. Some students launch their own business based on the technology that they learned at IPS. The number of students who return to their home country to become a university faculty member after obtaining their doctoral degree is also increasing.
In this borderless environment where students come together from various countries, age groups, and backgrounds, those who are motivated enough will find opportunities to obtain engineering knowledge and a global perspective required by the society.

Bilingual Education in Japanese and English

From its first year, IPS has been offering lectures in both Japanese and English and students who do not have Japanese language skills can obtain a degree only with English.  There are ample opportunities to communicate with students speaking different languages, which helps in mastering practical language skills.  Those students who want to learn Japanese and Japanese students who want to learn English can take affordable lessons at the Language Learning Center in Kitakyushu Science and Research Park.

Well-funded research and excellent facilities

Most of the teaching faculty at IPS is from industries, which promotes collaborative and commissioned research with firms and overseas universities.  Recognition of these achievements has led to a number of publicly funded research projects.  Both teaching staff and students are deeply engaged with research in order to realize a sustainable society.
