Graduate Schools and Programs
Systems and Information Engineering
Following the key policy that emphasis should be placed on graduate level programs, the University of Tsukuba are independently administered by each graduate school. In the master's program Students are provided with extensive knowledge and methods of technological development, while in the doctoral program our goal is to create people who have a high level of self-sustained research ability in specific fields. The Graduate School of Systems and Information Engineering comprises five doctoral programs (Policy and Planning Science, Risk Engineering, Computer Science, Intelligent Interaction Technologies, Engineering Mechanics and Energy) and six master's programs (Policy and Planning Science, Service Engineering, Risk Engineering, Computer Science, Intelligent Interaction Technologies, Engineering Mechanics and Energy). By adopting Cooperative Graduate School System, we are able to receive research guidance from other national research institutes located in the Tsukuba Science City. The Graduate School activity accepts people with jobs who aim at master's or doctor's degrees holding their posts in their companies.
This Graduate School integrates a wide range of academic fields in "Information systems", "engineering systems" and "social systems". Through such integration, we hope to go beyond the framework of conventional individual technical fields. The educational aim of this Graduate School is to develop human resources from a global and comprehensive viewpoint that contribute to the further development of mankind in the 21st century. Two special programs are ongoing. The first one is the "One Year doctoral program for working students". The second one is "Program for fostering advanced ICT professionals in the era of massive information contents" in the Department of Computer Science.
Moreover an interdisciplinary project for education and research, "Cybernics", has been taken a lead by the Department of Intelligent Interaction Technologies.
