Interdisciplinary research supported by diverse academic fields and people
The predecessor of the Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Engineering Sciences (IGSES), the Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Engineering Sciences Research Course, was established in 1979 as the nation’s first independent graduate school from undergraduate schools for the interdisciplinary research and education in science and engineering.
The current IGSES consists of 5 departments and plays an important role of advanced research and education in the three main fields, namely, material, energy and environment with the cooperation of Institutes for Materials Chemistry and Engineering (IMCE) as well as Research Institute for Applied Mechanics (RIAM).
During the past 26 years, IGSES has educated excellent students from various undergraduate schools, universities of all over the world, and achieved remarkable academic success through their interdisciplinary research activities. We are convinced that the diversity of students and faculty in terms of research areas as well as nationality in IGSES is an important resource and driving force to contribute the realization of sustainable development and economic prosperity based on the science and technology.
