Purpose of establishment:
A main goal of education at JAIST is to produce
engineers and researchers who have obtained not
only broad knowledge and fundamental concepts,
but also the ability to discover and solve
problems and to absorb advanced new ideas in their
fields.
Business overview:
Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology
(JAlST) was founded in 1990 as the first national
university to do research at the world's highest
level in the selected fields of science and
technology, and to offer the master's and doctor's
program in those fields of study. JAIST offers
graduate programs of Knowledge Science,
Information Science and Materials Science, which
Lead to master's and doctoral degrees. Students
who are eager to study are welcomed without regard
to their undergraduate majors. JAIST aims to
produce outstanding scientists and engineers to
whom we can entrust the future of the earth and
its people.
To do so, one must avoid confining themselves to
the narrow pit of specialization, but develop the
ability to expLore and solve the new problems
based on a broad and solid foundation of science.
We offer a well-designed curriculum for students
to realize these ideas of education.
