Education

ISSP contributes to the graduate education in materials science using its unique facilities. The faculties participate in the following departments of the graduate school of the University of Tokyo: Physics, Chemistry, Applied Physics, Advanced Materials, and Complexity Science and Engineering. However, students are encouraged to develop their careers across the established disciplines. Every year a guidance and guided tour are given to those who are interested in graduate courses in ISSP. In addition, the annual experiential learning program “Science Camp at Kashiwa Campus” also offers an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain a firsthand experience in materials science research.
