Gaining atomic mastery: From quantum theory to nanotechnology and novel biomaterials, Master of Materials Science and Engineering from University of Tsukuba launches graduates into exciting careers. 


About the programme

Facilities available within the department include molecular beam epitaxy, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and terahertz time-domain spectroscopy, notes Professor Seiji Kojima, whose lab focuses on the study of dynamical properties of condensed matter by ultra-broad spectroscopy. There are also outstanding computing facilities and links with the National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS) in the wider Tsukuba Science City area.

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Tsukuba can provide financial support to graduate students in terms of teaching and research assistant positons. There are also scholarships specifically for foreign students provided by the Japanese Government, such as prestigious MEXT and JSPS scholarships.

Materials Science and Engineering is an important discipline that develops materials for various applications. It is a key engineering field that supports social infrastructure in areas as diverse as information / telecommunications, construction, transportation, energy, the environment, medicine and welfare. 

Our program is jointly operated by the Graduate School of Pure and Applied Sciences and the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS). Prominent scientists from NIMS join with the graduate school faculty to supervise students’ research towards a Ph.D. degree.
