Our laboratory welcomes outstanding students for undergraduate and graduate studies and also for post-docs from all over the world. We are looking to attract very high-quality students and engage industry partners in advancing our research. If you are interested in working on one of our research projects, there is always the possibility to define sub-projects suitable for BS, MS, and Doctor theses. 

  • MS/Ph.D. courses at the University of Aizu are lectured in English. No Japanese language background is required.
  • There is no course work for Doctoral students, although candidates may be required to take certain courses in order to acquire specific knowledge or expertise to complete their research satisfactorily.
  • It takes two years to completing the MS course and three years for the Ph.D. course.
  • About our financial support program: Doctor students who are admitted at our Laboratory can receive financial assistance via our RA and Special RA programs.
