International Graduate Program
Since 2007, the School of Life Science and Technology (the former Graduate School of Bioscience and Biotechnology) has administered an international graduate course for foreign students from all over the world, especially excellent students from Asian countries.
In 2013, to further advance this graduate course, we launched new international education programs that include master’s, doctoral, and integrated master’s and doctoral education curricula designed to help students cultivate their creativity, learn practical working skills, and improve their English- and Japanese-language skills. In these International Graduate Programs, we foster international leaders who are able to develop leading-edge research and innovations in science and technology as a bridge between Japan and other countries.
Currently, our school has two Graduate Majors, Life Science and Technology and Human Centered Science and Biomedical Engineering. A student selects one of these majors after discussion with his or her supervisor.
School of Life Science and Technology accepts a wide variety of talented individuals through International Graduate Program (A) and International Graduate Program (C).
International Graduate Program (A) Overseas Application
Graduate Program to Foster BioDX Leaders for Global Bio-Industry
Type of Degree
- ・Master of Science
- ・Master of Engineering
- ・Doctor of Science
- ・Doctor of Engineering
- ・Doctor of Philosophy
The School of Life Science and Technology nurtures students who will be able to contribute to the creation of universal intellectual basis and give it back to the society with an ethical worldview through elucidation of biological mechanisms and through pioneering new engineering applications based on the biological knowledge. Since 2007, the School of Life Science and Technology (the former Graduate School of Bioscience and Biotechnology) has established an international graduate course for foreign students.
In 2022, as making advances in the previous graduate courses, we have launched a new international education program. This program is designed to foster “BioDX Leaders” for global bio-industry. In Japan, important fields such as the medical and health industry, the environmental and energy industry, and the food industry are currently developing based on biotechnology. However, in practical bio-industry, problems that cannot be addressed by conventional biotechnology have been pointed out, and breakthroughs on a global scale are required. In recent years, new technological innovations have been created by digital transformation (DX), and DX is recognized as a major growth strategy field. Therefore, this program aims to train BioDX leaders who can integrate DX into the cutting-edge biotechnology and realize a new global bio-industry. In present, our school has two Graduate Majors “Life Science and Technology” and “Human Centered Science and Biomedical Engineering”.
A student selects one of them after discussion with his/her supervisor. In this graduate program, we foster international leaders able to develop leading-edge R&D in innovation of science and technology and construct a bridge between Japan and other nations in the future.
Graduate Program to Foster BioDX Leaders is an integrated master's and doctoral education program and considered to be the most attractive educational curricula in the School. A student is required to enroll in the Tokyo Tech Master's course firstly, regardless of whether or not they have already earned a Master's degree.
