Science and Engineering
Home > Composition


The Graduate School of Science and Engineering builds on this country’s achievements in science and technology and forms the core of Kagoshima University’s postgraduate education. As such, we offer two programs: The Master’s Program gives students a more specialized education than the one they received during undergraduate study. The Doctoral Program offers cutting-edge, interdisciplinary, and comprehensive education and research opportunities that encourages innovation. We push the boundaries of engineering and science, fusing the two branches together to develop human resources who can compete with their counterparts anywhere in the world and form the foundation of this country’s competitive advantage.

In other words, we nurture capable people with basic proficiency in natural science and engineering who can apply their capabilities in a wide range of fields at the same time. Professionals, who understand the necessity of scientific creation, will act proactively, see things from a long-term and comprehensive point of view, and professionals who will put theory into practice.
