Message from the Program Director

Hiroyuki Takeda

The Programs for Leading Graduate Schools provide students with opportunities to acquire a solid foundation of basic science across existing disciplines as well as develop wide perspectives and utilize knowledge. By doing so, the programs aim to produce global leaders who can contribute to the sustainable development of human society across a wide range of fields in the industrial, academic and public sectors and lead the way in solving these issues.

With a focus on “photon science,” the Advanced Leading Graduate Course for Photon Science program, which is provided through joint efforts of the Graduate Schools of Science and Engineering, has developed an environment where friendly rivalry exists among the best students across the boundaries of existing academic fields or specialties. The program is also equipped with functions which enable students to acquire wide perspective to see the essence of issues comprehensively and utilize knowledge to solve them. With the substantial support and opportunities for international activities and exchanges this program has to offer, we hope to foster global and remarkable doctoral graduates.
