An environment conducive to hard work and practical education
During the two-year master's program, the university provides an environment in which students can pursue education and research together with mentor faculty members, young researchers, and guest researchers from overseas, including accommodations at the International Fiber Engineering and Education Center. By studying a broad range of research fields instead of restricting their attention to their single field of specialization, students are able to explore the research topics they will address in greater detail once they proceed to the doctoral program.
During the three-year doctoral program, students receive research guidance as needed from overseas researchers who act as co-supervisors to augment their primary advisor and multiple assistant advisors. Through participation in research projects at a pilot factory located on campus (the Fiber Innovation Incubator), assignment to partner universities overseas (for overseas special training), participation in internships at domestic and overseas companies, and other experiences, students grow into global leaders who combine the ability to apply skills that are backed up by specialized knowledge with management skills and the ability to communicate effectively.
