Course description and aims

This is a laboratory seminar for doctoral program students of International Graduate Program for Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering course. This two-quarter long course is designed to give opportunities of group discussion based on their research progress led by supervisor(s). It gives students specialist knowledge in their fields of study as well as basic knowledge in a broader area, with a focus on research assignments that are suggested by the academic supervisor (assignments may be decided through discussions with the academic supervisor). The students will incorporate this knowledge into their own research themes to carry out researches, participate in academic discussions, and give presentations of their findings. Graduate education at Tokyo Tech is comprised of coursework education based on a structured curriculum and laboratory work characterized by individualized instruction. IPISE Seminar (ECHEM) courses are central to the laboratory-based education, and active learning is strongly encouraged.
