Major advances are being seen in boundary areas and interdisciplinary fields across modern science. The role of a Doctor of Science, which is to conduct research and development related to natural and applied sciences, has been increasing in importance even more than before. Due to the need to cultivate advanced professionals, this program fosters researchers with the broad knowledge necessary to enter new fields beyond their own previously limited areas of expertise through education aimed at cultivating advanced applied skills by combining a wide range of specialized knowledge. The program fosters the ability to cooperate with researchers in a large number of different fields in order to find targets for research with the goal of contributing in boundary and interdisciplinary areas. In addition, it also supports research activities based on the outlook of a woman’s lifestyle that balances work and the family.
This program offers advanced education and research relating to the development of mathematical theory in each field of pure mathematics—algebra, analysis and geometry. The program enables the development of interdisciplinary research skills grounded in a mathematical perspective, and is focused on cultivating professionals, teachers, researchers and others possessing advanced mathematical knowledge and operational skills.
This program covers fields ranging from theoretical and experimental particle physics, astrophysics and statistical mechanics, to fields of condensed matter physics such superconductivity, spintronics and soft matter. It enables students to develop an intuitive and physical understanding of physics based on the integration of theoretical and practical perspectives. In addition to improving student research skills into physics, this program teaches reductionist and pluralistic perspectives, and strives to help students develop their problem-solving skills.
This program focuses on the many types of molecules including functional materials, supramolecules, medicines, and biomolecules, etc. Education and research are conducted from a wide range of perspectives, including materials science, synthetic chemistry, complex systems, computational chemistry, and life sciences.
By integrating research in various fields of computer sciences—from the basics to applied computer science—this program illustrates the theories and applications of computer sciences needed in today’s advanced information society. Research is conducted on techniques of mathematical science needed in computer science of the next generation, computer science techniques that form the basis of modern information science and its application, and the use and analysis methods of various information derived from natural and life phenomena, and human life sciences.
