  • Curriculum

    カリキュラム

    The education and research of the Department of Bioengineering is divided into six fields: mechanobio-engineering, bioelectronics, biodevices, chemical bioengineering, biomaterials and bioimaging.

    In this new international program, lectures concerning general bioengineering-related concepts and specific topics in each of the six fields of research will be conducted, as well as more intimate discussion- based seminars both in basic bioscience and bioindustry. We are especially attentive to the inclusion of the latest research achievements from each of the six fields in our lecture content. In addition to these classes, students must conduct a master thesis research in each laboratory.

    Through specialized education and research curriculum, G30-IBP is able to foster exceptional students with good English communication skills in science and engineering and who have both a wide vision and specific expertise in at least one of the six areas, so that they may take active roles in the research and development of rapidly advancing bioengineering-related fields.

    Students are requested to obtain over 30 credits to complete the program. A minimum of 12 credits must be acquired through the completion of at least one specific lecture (2 credits) from each of the 6 fields of bioengineering. Each class is elective. A minimum of 13 credits must be acquired from seminars (2 credits each, compulsory) and credits concerning advanced experiments (6 credits) and research (4 credits) in conducting their Master’s thesis (compulsory).
