Course description and aims

This lecture series is designed to provide students with practical training in the methodologies used to turn cutting-edge research and development at Tokyo Tech into innovations.
The fields of research and development are diverse, including condensed matter physics, applied chemistry, mechanical physics, production engineering, robotics, electronic physics, electrical and electronic engineering, biotechnology, nanotechnology, information environment, computational engineering, and natural science, with two cases per quarter. However, this lecture does not presuppose knowledge in any particular field, and will be explained in a basic manner for students who are not specialists.

Student learning outcomes
