Aim of the Program

With the advancement of the ICT industry which has become a major industry in the society, there are many trends within each industry segment to revolutionalize their schemes using ICT technologies. In Japan there is a scheme called Society 5.0 which aims to implement an inclusive society making use of the value created by ICT technology which would take advantage of the activeness created by diversity. In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary nurture personnel who can realize a new academic area/ application area which tries to fuse various diverse research fields with ICT Technologies and can create new value based on the application of this newly created research field. The ultimate goal of this program is to educate PHD students who can grow up to be such researchers and revolutionalize the academic and the industrial world.

 

 

Summary and quorum of each year

In the first two years (Master’s course): Students will acquire and strengthen basic specialist skills and practical skills of the department to which they belong. Meanwhile, they also acquire basic knowledge and viewpoints of social innovation and ICT, and cultivate problem consciousness, through the original class / subjects provided by this program. In addition, they should master basic skills through training camps and internship in a foreign application field to gain experience to prepare for the doctor’s course. The internship should be at least three months long and can be conducted in firms outside the university, medical institutes, research institutes, or university in foreign countries. Those students who aspire to do a research of fusing various application fields with ICT technologies can conduct an internship within the university of Tokyo but outside of their main research fields. For the latter case, they must submit an internship plan and get approval.
After the first semester of the second year, the students must submit a research plan of their PHD courses. This will be conducted as a qualification examination (QE) of the Creation of Innovation for an Intelligent World Program. IN the QE the students will be evaluated based on their ability to work as a Principal Investigator to conduct the research.
After they have passed the QE, the students will be supplied with the subsidy of 180,000 Yen per month.
In their Phd courses (after the third year,) the students are expected to take the original class subjects and conduct research on Program of Innovation for an Intelligent World.
Those who had not taken the intern ship in the master course must conduct the internship as well. They will compile their research fruits as a PHD thesis for the Program of Innovation for Intelligent World. The result will be examined by a special examination committee and if the result is satisfactory, a certification of completion of the course will be given.

 

Characteristics of the course and requirements for program completion

In order to complete the course the students must satisfy the following requirements
