Empowering the Individual

Meiji University was founded in January 1881 as the Meiji Law School by a group of young lawyers barely in their 30's: Tatsuo Kishimoto, Kozo Miyagi, and Misao Yashiro.
Currently there are 10 undergraduate Schools and 12 Graduate Schools, as well as the Law School and professional schools for the development of highly-specialized workers. The University also includes Meiji University Junior High School and Meiji University High School. These programs comprise one of Japan's most outstanding comprehensive university systems. With over 500,000 graduates sent out into society, Meiji University has played a major role in Japan's development.
Meiji University, in the spirit of empowering individuals, aims to make dramatic advances onto the world stage as the top urban university in Japan.

Training Highly-Specialized Engineers Skilled in Design

The Department of Science and Technology aims to train highly skilled professionals and productive researchers to understand the structure of the laws of nature and mathematics that governs them and apply the knowledge to contribute to the development and well-being of humanity
Through subjects created for each department along with the acquisition of specialized academic skills, well-balanced courses related to a wide range of themes and interdisciplinary study that is common to all courses are provisioned for flexible training to develop domain boundaries and new fields, not only expertise knowledge of science and engineering but also perspective of science and technology and their relevance to the society.

A Fulfilling Research Environment

In addition, we actively promote exchanges with other graduate schools and the world beyond our university’s walls. Programs include a joint graduate school system and mutual credit recognition agreements with other universities.
We also provide cost subsidies for participating in academic conferences and events both nationwide and abroad, a system for recruiting TAs, RAs, and other assistants, and other scholarship programs that provide financial support.
We provide a fulfilling research environment so that graduate students can productively engage in their research.
We are looking forward to enroll highly motivated students in our Science and Technology courses.

Department of Architecture and Architectural Engineering, Urban Design、 International Professional Courses
This new approach by Meiji University has architects experience a world without borders.

http://meiji-architecture.net/iaud/
[International Professional Course Objectives]

Within the learning, research, and practice of architecture and urban design, there is urgent demand for the training of highly specialized experts with international perspectives to address issues inherent to regions and problems that cross borders.
On the other hand, in recent years, Japan’s domestic construction industry was exposed to long-term stagnation and a trend of global economic instability.
Looking forward, there is a need to further advance programs that nurture architectural engineers who can excel on the international stage.
In the Graduate School of Science and Engineering’s Department of Architecture at Meiji University, an “International Professional Course” was established in 2013 to train experts who can play an active role internationally. The diversified educational environment is designed for an internationally-diverse student body and with our global society in mind.

Department of Electrical Engineering
Trains highly-specialized engineers and leaders in the fields of electricity, electronics, and biotechnology.

http://www.meiji.ac.jp/sst/grad/curriculum/ee/ee.html
In the Department of Electrical Engineering, expertise in electrical engineering is used as a foundation for learning in more specialized subjects in the field. We aim to cultivate highly skilled professional engineers with scientific sensibilities and creativity in a wide range of fields. We expect such individuals will stand out from the rest and establish themselves in leadership positions within various fields.
Advanced research and training in integrated engineering and science built on the broad platform of electrical engineering is conducted to foster researchers and engineers equipped with the expertise and diversification sought after in the field of electrical engineering.

Department of Mechanical Engineering
Trains engineers with an international perspective that excel in a wide variety of fields in disciplines such as fundamental mechanics, mechanical engineering, and mechanical systems engineering.

http://www.meiji.ac.jp/sst/grad/curriculum/mech/mech.html
In the Department of Mechanical Engineering, fields of research and technology are configured into groups of main subjects and highly-specialized subjects and peripheral subjects are set to implement practical training and education that is focused on the enrichment of humanity. In this respect, the objective is to train high-level engineers and researchers to acquire a broad range of knowledge and a sense of responsibility and ethics so they can discover and deal with the needs and problems of society, and then solve them.
