***There will be no admission to the master's degree program for 2013.***
This is a two year inter-engineering master's degree program that combines the study of engineering and technical Japanese in a high-tech learning environment. It is the only program of its kind in the country.
Students take classes in an engineering specialty and in advanced Japanese. They spend summer quarter after their first year in Japan doing a required Internship in a Japanese company or research lab. Some internships are longer. Students graduate with an Inter-Engineering MSE or MS degree.
Applicants who do not have an engineering or other high-tech background can follow the Human Centered Design & Engineering track and graduate with the inter-engineering MS degree.
To be admitted, students should have at least three years of college-level Japanese language study or the equivalent. The Japanese Proficiency Test is required for all applicants and should be taken no later than two weeks before the application deadline. If applicants are unable to make arrangements to take the test before the application deadline, they need to contact Masashi Kato (firstname.lastname@example.org).
