To Foreign Students Considering Studying in Tokyo University of Science. JAPAN STUDY SUPPORT is a website jointly operated by The Asian Students Cultural Association and Benesse Corporation. It provides information about studying in Japan.
The website also provides detailed information about Tokyo University of Science and its faculties of Science Division 1, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Engineering, Science and Technology, Industrial Science and Technology, and Management. Take full advantage of the site to learn everything you would like to know about Tokyo University of Science.
In addition, information for about 1,300 universities, graduate schools, two-year colleges, and vocational schools that accept foreign students is also posted.
The Faculty of Industrial Science and Technology, which was established in 1987, is made up of 3 departments, the Department of Applied Electronics, Department of Materials Science and Technology and the Department of Biological Science and Technology, all of which aim to create new academic fields and technologies in electronics, nanotechnology and materials and biotechnology. This endeavor to combine science and technology was visionary for its time and has since come to cover all of the main national science and technology fields from both Japan and America. However, when predicting what will happen over the next 30 years, the Faculty believes that there will be a need to create new science and technology fields that will contribute to the realization of a safe and secure society. For this reason, the Faculty aims to create new innovations that target ICT, energy and the environment, medicine and health and food and nutrition. It strives to foster global human resources capable of succeeding on the international stage, who have independent initiative and can adapt across borders. Students spend their first year living in a student dormitory on the Oshamambe Campus, surrounded by beautiful nature in Hokkaido, northern Japan.
Students spend their first year at the Oshamambe Campus, surrounded by beautiful nature in Hokkaido, northern Japan. Here they study general courses such as math, physics, chemistry, computer skills, as well as English, humanities and physical education. From their 2nd year students transfer to the Katsushika Campus, which opened in April, 2013. In addition to the specialist courses such as electrical mathematics, electromagnetism engineering and electrical circuits that students study at the Katsushika Campus, they also study a balanced curriculum of subjects that can be applied to the foundations of electronics, including electronic devices, information processing, computer and mechanical systems and management control. Students deepen their understanding of the field of applied electronics through lectures and experiments, culminating in their 4th year, when they are assigned to a laboratory to experience leading research in the field of their graduation research.
Students learn through the 3 processes of a thorough academic foundation, enriched practical experiments and graduation research. In their 1st and 2nd years students learn in-depth about the qualities of materials from an atomic and molecular level before moving onto the field of materials science and technology. Students learn about the material design required for creating new materials and functions, how to actually combine materials, the process of making the required material from the raw material, the composition of the materials given, physical properties, functions, analysis and evaluation. In learning these specialist fields, a lot of emphasis is placed on carrying out practical experiments. Students receive one-on-one instruction, learn how to combine materials with their own hands, and operate highly advanced equipment for material analysis and evaluation. Students are assigned to each of the research labs to carry out their leading-edge graduation research.
The foundation of bioengineering lies in biological science, the focal point of which is the phenomena behind all living organisms, DNA. Only after the development of biological science did it become possible to conduct molecular design and artificial modifications of biotic functions, making way for the evolution of bioengineering. With an emphasis on bioscience, students study organic chemistry, physical chemistry and biochemistry. Students also study biogenetics, cellular engineering, biopolymer engineering, immunoengineering and protein engineering, which are all essential in the production process, organ rejuvenation and the design of new medicines. In addition, students will learn about biomolecular computer simulation and bio process engineering. This thorough education of the field of bioengineering is extremely important in being able to use biological science and technology knowledge over a long time and over a broad range of fields.
