Department of Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies, Graduate School of Engineering

The Department of Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies (AIS) provides education and research training concerning budding and pioneering basic and applied researches in the fields of advanced science and technology. It also gives guidance in what is called "research on research" in those fields.
In addition to a traditional graduate school education, the AIS provides people in mid-career with the opportunity to resume their studies in an academic environment.

The AIS aims to nurture not only ingenious, creative researchers in the fields of advanced science and technology but also progressive international research experts and corporate managers having a broader perspective, as well as forward-thinking and interdisciplinary policymakers.
In fiscal year 2010, AIS has started two new programs to train personnel actively working in the fields of barrier-free and environment and energy.
