Cooperative Graduate School System (For General Admission)
Due to the progress and further sophistication of science and technology today, research fields have become more departmentalized and specialized. On the other hand, new interdisciplinary fields have emerged to defy the boundaries of traditional academic fields, leading to the need for integrated research.
Especially interdisciplinary research, which requires vast knowledge in areas from basic to applied research, has made it necessary for researchers from different fields to cooperate. In order to fulfill that need, there are increased demands for new, integrated, and interdisciplinary methods of educating researchers.
The Cooperative Graduate School System was created to respond to these academic and social needs. We have worked toward forging links with the large number of national, independent, and private experimental research institutes in and outside Tsukuba Science City. We employ researchers from these institutes as visiting professors and associate professors, thereby giving our students the opportunity to have their work supervised by researchers from leading edge research facilities. This system aims to diversify and expand the educational and research domain for further enhancement of graduate school education, and to contribute to the development of a new research domain by promoting exchange with research institutes.
