A key aspect of graduate education at the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Science (GSS) is that education is closely linked to research. Through the graduate school curricula, students learn how to carry out research effectively from faculty members who are active at the frontlines of research, thus enabling students to conduct advanced and creative research themselves. The overall goal of graduate education at the GSS is to develop and enhance the capabilities of researchers and educators possessing originality and ingenuity to conduct pioneering research at the frontlines of various scientific fields, act as core members of international and interdisciplinary research projects, and through their research and other activities, meet the needs of the industrial community and society at large.
