Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Engineering Sciences

The interdisciplinary graduate school of engineering sciences is one of the few graduate schools in Japan having the achievements and tradition that has been committed to academic graduate education for over 25 years as an independent graduate school of science that strictly offer graduate courses. People who learned different areas of specialty in departments of universities respectively, gather from the universities around the world to learn and tackle their own studies while deepening exchanges with adult students, researchers from companies, and so on. We have the Research Institute for Applied Mechanics, the Institute for Materials Chemistry and Engineering, the Health Science Center, the Center of Advanced Instrumental Analysis, the Art, Science and Technology Center for Cooperative Research and so on besides the interdisciplinary graduate school in the campus, and actively develop our activities as a place of advanced education research under close cooperation in Kyushu University.

Our interdisciplinary graduate school is in the Chikushi campus which has a large area of about 300,000 square meters across the Kasuga city and the Onojyo city next to the south of the Fukuoka city, and is conveniently located for public transportation, right in front of the Onojyo station (rapid train stop) of the Kagoshima Main Line taking 15 minutes by walk from the Shirakibaru station of the Tenjin Omuta line, Nishi-Nippon Railroad. The surrounding area is set out as a green and educational area and as an area of health and recreation, and is placed in the top 3 towns where we would like to live in the Fukuoka region all the time. The Chikushi campus is located in the center of the region, and also is a key player, and is not included in the campus relocations of the Kyushu University to the Motooka area of the Itoshima peninsula, started from 2005. Research activities can be carefully tackled in a green, matured campus.
