Energy Science and Engineering
Graduate Major

Become a valued expert in the field of
Energy Science and Engineering

There is a demand for the development of multidimensional energy theory — a discipline developed through specializing and deepening expertise, and fusing and restructuring complex learning related to energy, which makes it possible to gain an effective, comprehensive overview. Experts in this field are also in demand. In the Graduate Major in Energy Science and Engineering, we cultivate individuals to lead innovation and contribute to society with advanced expertise based on the disciplines of physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering. Such individuals possess the comprehensive skills to handle ever-changing energy problems from a multidimensional energy theory perspective, with independent problem extracting/solving skills and international leadership skills.

Objectives

Developing multidimensional
energy theories

In the Master's Program, we train individuals with advanced expertise based on the disciplines of physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering, as well as the ability to solve energy problems from a multidimensional energy theory perspective.
