Outline(The Division of Advanced Sciences)

28.03.2016 Update


The Advanced Sciences division emphasizes the nature of academic fields in the sciences as basic sciences and encourages specialized knowledge in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and computer science. The division also aims to foster broad, flexible attitudes of learning that will be effective in related fields of study as well as new, emerging fields.

Compared to Western countries, there are currently very few Japanese women with doctorates in the sciences, and there is a pressing societal need for more women researchers. In the face of major advancements in scientific technology in recent years, there is a real need for creative researchers with both a high level of expertise and the breadth and vision to connect their area of expertise with other fields. Based on the foundations gained in the Advanced Sciences master's program, the doctoral program provides an even more specialized education that is simultaneously varied and integrated in order to foster women leaders in various fields with science doctorates.

The Advanced Sciences graduate division consists of four departments: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Computer Science.

Department of Mathematics

In Mathematics, highly specialized academic research in the pure mathematics fields of algebra, analysis, and geometry will be conducted. In addition, specialized research in academic fields ranging from the natural to the social sciences and humanities will be offered, as well as in applied mathematics, in which mathematical methodologies are applied to various issues in real life and society.

Department of Physics

In Physics, highly advanced research and education in the various fields of physics and related areas will be conducted, in order to foster researchers with expertise and the ability to grow in their respective fields.

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

In Chemistry and Biochemistry, the variety of organic, inorganic, metal complex molecules and molecular clusters that make up substance will be studied. Furthermore, the biomolecules that constitute living organisms such as carbohydrate and protein will be studied with an emphasis on the fundamentals but also in relation to broader academic research in fields such as material science, substance production science, complex system science, and biological science.

Department of Computer Science

In Computer Science, information will be understood from a scientific logical point of view with a solid and wide-ranging understanding of the natural sciences and mathematics. The aim of the education and research is to foster researchers and engineers with the ability to analyze and process such information and design appropriate systems.
