The Graduate School of Science nurtures professionals who can contribute to a better relationship with the natural world through the application of research in natural science, deep knowledge of the field, and research proficiency.
Applied Mathematics (MS, PhD)
The Department of Applied Mathematics consists of academics specializing in algebra, topology, differential geometry, functional analysis, differential equation theory, functional theory, and information science. Through their specialized guidance, we strive to develop human resources with advanced mathematical knowledge and application skills that can respond to the information society.
Applied Physics (MS, PhD)
Four core subjects offered are Fundamental Physics to study astrophysics or physical properties of materials such as magnetism, Condensed Matter Physics to research physical properties of highly functional molecular aggregates, etc., Nanophysics to investigate physical properties based on nanoscale structures, Physical Information and Instrumentation to study physical measurement and information processing.
Chemistry (MS, PhD)
There are five fields of specialty specialized departments of chemistry; Functional Material Chemistry to study the creation and functional elucidation of functional materials, Structural Physical Chemistry to research the structure and physicochemical phenomena, Organic and Biological Chemistry covering reactions and the synthesis of organic compounds, Functional Biochemistry that studies the functions of cell, RNA, and Nanochemistry researching the function elucidation of nanoscale materials.
Earth System Science (MS, PhD)
The Department of the Earth System Science is an interdisciplinary major that organically, comprehensively and historically clarifies various phenomena in the earth, consisting of the aerosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere. It consists of six courses; Physics of the Global Environment, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Hydrospheric Material Chemistry, Geodynamics, Structural Adaptation Biology, and Functional Adaptation Biology.
