The ratio of young adults in Japan has been shrinking as society has started to rapidly age, as a result of that, we are almost in an era where young adults must support society. Japan will continue to be looked to for the role it plays in researching and developing natural and applied sciences to deal with this challenge. This program is based on a high level of specialized knowledge that is tied to technologies that actually help society. The skills of women are in demand in every field of scientific research and development. Students in the Advanced Sciences program attain a high level of specialized knowledge as well as basic knowledge in a wide range of fields, including mathematics, physics, chemistry and biochemistry, and computer science. This department seeks to foster highly creative students who can think for themselves with the deep and broad range of knowledge demanded in technological fields, where expectations for women to achieve are high. The Advanced Sciences program supports education and research that can help women enter and shine in society, with an emphasis on the entire course of their lives.
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.
