The Doctoral Program in Materials Science and Engineering is operated jointly by the Graduate School of Pure and Applied Sciences at the University of Tsukuba and the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS). Selected scientists from NIMS have joined the graduate school faculty and supervise the student's thesis research for a
Materials Science and Engineering is a discipline that helps to develop and use materials for various engineering applications and is a key engineering field to support the infrastructures of the modern society, such as information, communication, construction, transportation, energy, environment, medicine and welfare. This program is comprised of three fields: Advanced Metallic Materials, Advanced Inorganic Materials, and Advanced Nano-Bio Materials and aims at educating students to become highly professional engineers or scientists in Materials Science and Engineering through hands-on research experience using the advanced experimental facilities and by participating in major research projects. The NIMS offers a Junior Research Assistantship for excellent students seeking to complete a Ph. D. degree. The education in the doctoral program is conducted in English so that students from all over the world are able to study here without experiencing any handicaps compared to the Japanese students.
The faculty members of this program are involved in the education of the first two-year master course of Materials Science and Engineering in cooperation with the Chemistry, Frontier Science, Applied Physics, and Materials Science Programs of the Graduate School. The classes are currently taught in Japanese; therefore, students who wish to be enrolled in the master's course are required to have knowledge of the Japanese language.
We would like to invite young graduate students to join the frontier research at NIMS.
