By marshaling the University's diverse intellectual and human resources and bringing together first-class textile researchers from Japan and overseas around a core interest in fiber engineering, defined in extremely far-ranging terms as the aggregate of fields with the potential to serve as the basis for advanced technologies, the program seeks to train future leaders of international society. Graduates will be distinguished by their ability to contribute to harmony between economic and environmental priorities, the development and peaceful coexistence of sustainable human societies, and the improvement of social welfare.
