Welcome to the website of IGSES

Welcome to the Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Engineering Sciences (IGSES) at Kyushu University, one of Japan’s top research universities.

With a focus on solving various environmental problems and contributing the realization of a sustainable society through innovative research, IGSES has committed to interdisciplinary graduate education in the research fields of material, energy, and environment since its establishment of the predecessor for over 25 years. IGSES, a
relatively young graduate school compared with Kyushu University with a history of a century, has accepted many students and researchers from various research fields, universities, and countries. Our goal is to prepare our students as true leading engineers and researchers to tackle the various real world issues with wide, deep and advanced knowledge.

I wish you the best of luck in all your future research endeavors and sincerely hope that you will value your time here in IGSES, Kyushu University and Japan.
