Special Practice in Global Science & Technology (Advanced Equipment)

The Special Practice in Global Science & Technology program offers laboratory work using the most advanced instruments equipment in various scientific fields. The objective is to have students participate in fields outside of their specialty so that they can broaden their interdisciplinary perspectives. This program welcomes the participation not only of students in the Leading Program but also those in the master and doctoral programs, and is approved for the receipt of credits.
