What is Five-year doctoral course?
From the 2006 fiscal year, School of Physical Sciences and School of High Energy Accelerator Science introduced Five-year doctoral program. We accept the graduates and Colleges of Technology graduates. Five-year doctoral program is divided into in the 1st to 2nd years of the 5-years doctoral course, which is equivalent to a master’s program and in the 3rd to 5th years of the 5-years doctoral course, which is equivalent to a doctoral program. The same faculty advisers provide consistent research guidance over the entire five-year period.
We also accept Three-year doctoral program course. We have introduced a flexible and unique doctoral education system to accept even master’s degree graduates.
Philosophy in the Fusion Science Program
The Fusion Science Program conducts experimental research on high-temperature plasmas, using large fusion experimental devices, and various engineering research necessary for fusion reactors with a view to realizing nuclear fusion power generation that can provide a next-generation energy source. The Program also provides instruction on a theoretical inquiry into the complex behavior of high-temperature plasmas. In this way, the program aims to contribute to the advancement of fusion research and nurture high-level researchers with discernment and broad perspectives.
Prospective student for the Fusion Science Program
The program seeks students who are strongly interested in and passionate about a broad range of research, ranging from the basic analyses to the applications, which is aimed at the achievement of fusion power generation; and have formidable intellect, abundant sensibilities, and the potential to develop into high-level researchers with discernment and broad perspectives.
