Mathematical and Computing Science
Graduate Major

Broader, deeper — a curriculum that supports those aiming
to be globally successful researchers

In the Graduate Major in Mathematical and Computing Science, related courses are grouped into categories to provide systematic and specialized learning according to students' level of learning and achievement.

    • Tokyo Tech
    • Other Universities,
      Technical Colleges,
  1. Entrance

    Applicants must pass an entrance examination to advance from an undergraduate major to a master's program.
  2. Master's Program
    (2 Years)*1

    400-Level and 500-Level Courses

    Based on their basic knowledge of mathematics, applied mathematics, and computing science gained in the Undergraduate Program students can systematically study continuous and discreet mathematics, probability and statistics and their developing application, as well as more advanced knowledge and technology based on the newest research related to computing theory and practical applications. The program is structured to enable students to deepen their expertise and increase their practical and creative skills by performing their own research in Research Seminars, special experiments and exercises, and their master's thesis research.

    • Mathematics
      Acquire broad, advanced knowledge in mathematics by learning both continuous and discreet systems. Students can deepen their own research through exposure to cutting-edge mathematics in Topics on Mathematical and Computing Science.
    • Applied Mathematics
      Deal with mathematical models supported by more advanced mathematics theories and acquire computing techniques actually used in the real world. This cultivates the skills to discover new mathematical techniques for dealing with real-world problems.
    • Computer Science
      Students gain a deeper understanding of the theoretical aspects of computing in the form of computational logic and complexity theory. Students also learn the skills to practically handle large-scale data from the real world such as high performance computing.

    2. Advancement
      Applicants must pass an advancement
      assessment to advance from a master's program to a doctoral program.
    1. Other Universities'
      Graduates and Working Adults

    2. Entrance
      Applicants must pass an entrance
      assessment to advance from another university to a doctoral program.
  3. Doctoral Program
    (3 Years)*2

    600-Level Courses

    Students can improve their communication skills in English Presentation Courses, and practical technology skills in Internship Courses . Additionally, the Mathematical and Computing Science Forum Courses are provided to enable students to broaden their vision; they allow students to experience planning and carrying out events by themselves, such as doctoral students' technological exchange meetings and lectures by visiting faculty. The curriculum is structured to enable students to develop their specialization and enhance creative skills through Research Seminars and doctoral thesis research.

    • Language Skills and Presentation Skills
      Students aim to enhance their language skills, communication, and presentation techniques through English presentation courses. Students learn the skills required to pitch their own research findings to the world and to collaborate in research that transcends national borders.
    • Practical Skills, Social Experience
      From a practical point of view, students cultivate the skills to propose solutions to a variety of real-world problems through internships at companies and research institutes.
    • Planning and Leadership Skills
      Students enhance their planning and leadership skills by independently running research presentation meetings, etc. Students also deepen their own research and cultivate a broad perspective by discussing each other's presentations.

    *2Indicates the standard model where the Doctoral Program is completed in three years.
