Qualifications for filing an application
The Nagoya University’s DII Collaborative Graduate Program for Accelerating Innovation in Future Electronics is run mainly by the 10 departments of the Graduate School of Engineering listed below, and the Center for Integrated Research of Future Electronics. Students wishing to enroll in the program are therefore required to be registered with any of the following departments or other relevant departments:
Electronics; Electrical Engineering; Information and Communication Engineering;
Materials Physics; Applied Physics;
Materials Process Engineering; Materials Design Innovation Engineering; ; Chemical System Engineering;
Mechanical Systems Engineering; Aerospace Engineering; Micro-Nano Mechanical Science and Engineering; and
Energy Engineering; Applied Energy
As an integrated master’s and doctoral program covering the entire process from admission to the graduate school to the acquisition of a doctoral degree, this educational program requires, as a prerequisite, enrolled students to go on to the doctoral program, with the intention of earning a doctorate. Designed to develop additional abilities in parallel with the usual graduate school education, the program accepts students with an intense interest in manufacturing and products while receiving an education sufficient to earn the degree. The program will also accept the limited number of students in doctoral courses who have sufficient R&D experience in society for diversity.
The applicant should have high-level Japanese language skill, i.e., enough reading, writing, listening and speaking skill to understand graduate-course-level lectures and practices on science and engineering given in Japanese.
Further details are provided in the Admission Policy.
Selection of applicants is made in or after January from among students wishing to participate in the program. (Please note that for AY2018, applications will be accepted exceptionally in October through November 2018.) Interested students are advised to proceed with the preparations, such as obtaining a certificate of language proficiency and consulting their supervising faculty member, in addition to passing the relevant graduate school entrance examination.
Selection will not merely be based on excellent academic performance, but will also emphasize a high level of motivation and enthusiasm as well as initiative and independence in taking action of one’s own accord, and to assess these competencies, the screening of applicants’ documents and an interview will be conducted. Details of the latest application guidelines are planned to be released on the News page of this website.
