Building connections to a smarter world: International students experience cutting-edge computational research in Japan’s Science City without worrying about language barriers. We offer a master degree in Computer Science at the University of Tsukuba. 


The University of Tsukuba's Computer Science English program gives Cruz and his 11 other international classmates the opportunity to be on the frontline of Japanese research into large-scale computing, while taking their coursework in English. And being located in Tsukuba — a planned city with one of the world’s largest clusters of public research centers and innovative science start-ups — opportunities for groundbreaking, interdisciplinary collaborations abound.

The diversity of the University of Tsukuba’s Department of Computer Science — in addition to their international backgrounds, nearly one-third of students are graduates of other universities — ensures connections are made between people with different experiences and abilities. According to Aranha, such cross-disciplinary networks are key to students’ success in finding post-graduate careers as researchers in both industry and academia.
