This is a new graduate-level program aiming at providing the state of the art education in the rapidly progressing field of computer science and information technologies.
The graduate research program is run in cooperation with funded research projects.
After enrollment, the students will be given an opportunity to select a research project according to his/her interests.
In addition to adequate office space and research equipment, the project will provide each student with the following financial supports:
1. Monthly stipend:
Each student will receive the salary as a research assistant for his/her own research/study. The amount is calculated as 28 hours per week and 1,400 yen (Japanese Yen) per hour.

2. Travel expenses:
For foreign students, financial support for onward travel will be provided.
3. Research fund:
