Nagoya University

Nagoya University (NU) was first founded in 1871 as a temporary hospital and medical school. After undergoing several transitions, NU was established as an imperial university in 1939, and it has grown to be one of the world's top research universities. Throughout its history, NU has maintained a free and vibrant academic culture, which has cultivated 6 Japanese Nobel Laureates in 21st century.

About Graduate School of Engineering

The Graduate School of Engineering has established a unique engineering education and research system called “Flexible Graduate School System” to adapt to greater sophistication and diversity in the field of engineering. In this system, two groups, the so-called “Ryoiki Senko Group; Departments associated with the traditional fields of engineering” and the “Fukugo Senko Group; Departments associated with the interdisciplinary fields of engineering” are well combined to build a successful interdisciplinary field based on a solid foundation in the traditional engineering disciplines.
