Admissions Policy・Curriculum Policy・Degree Policy

1.Admissions Policy

    Tokyo Tech Academy of Energy and Informatics welcomes the following students:

  • Those who have basic academic ability in science and engineering, and can think and express themselves logically based on that ability
  • Those who understand ideas from a multifaceted perspective based on broad and deep knowledge
  • Those who have the language skills necessary for promoting research and technological development with a global perspective
  • Those who have the ability to solve fundamental problems using knowledge, skills, imagination, and creativity
  • Those who are willing to tackle the unknown, and are capable of developing their own global leadership competencies

2.Curriculum Policy

    The Tokyo Tech Academy of Energy and Informatics program provides the following educational content, and enables students to successfully meet the degree policy requirements.

  • Energy Science: Students will systematically acquire scholarly knowledge related to multi-disciplinary energy science classified and reconstructed through analysis of knowledge and parallels pertaining to energy devices and systems
  • Big Data Science: Students will develop their aptitude to concretely synthesize AI analysis and data science as they creatively apply to their own energy-related areas of specialization
  • Social Design: Students will acquire knowledge and skills in social science disciplines covering business innovation, finance, marketing, policy theory, econometrics, etc. In addition, they will develop the ability to persuasively motivate and engage others by sharing the social and economic value of their own R&D and business designs
  • Practice: Students will become proficient in international communication skills, and be capable of exerting global leadership with the determination to bring about innovation and create a new society.

3.Degree Policy

    In order to successfully complete the Tokyo Tech Academy of Energy and Informatics program, students must satisfy the credit requirements and demonstrate that they have developed the expertise, skills, and personal attributes required of the following individuals:

  • Those who are fully prepared to harness big data science to promote research and development in promising new energy devices and systems, design a groundbreaking energy society, and drive the forces of innovation
  • Multi-disciplinary Energy Science Scope: Those who have scholarly knowledge related to multi-disciplinary energy science classified and reconstructed through analysis of knowledge and parallels pertaining to energy devices and systems (profound expertise)
  • Big Data Science Scope: Those who possess the aptitude to concretely synthesize AI analysis and data science as they apply to their own energy-related areas of specialization (expertise and skills)
  • Social Design Scope: Those who have knowledge and skills in social science disciplines covering business innovation, finance, marketing, policy theory, econometrics, etc. In addition, they are equipped with the ability to persuasively motivate and engage others by sharing the social and economic value of their own R&D and business designs, and leadership competencies needed for success at a global level (expertise and quality as members of society)

From Registration to Completion

  • Student Selection

    Students applying to the program are evaluated and selected by faculty members and corporate collaborators on the basis of their progress in research at the master’s level, academic abilities, expertise, and other factors.
    Even after selection, students will encounter “stage gates” that serve to motivate them and ensure the quality of those who complete the program.

  • SG1:

    The first stage gate involves an evaluation of the student’s master’s thesis. An open hearing of thirty minutes or more, including a thesis presentation and a Q&A session, will be convened. Faculty members rigorously assess the qualifications of students for acceptance into the doctoral-level of the program.

  • SG2:

    As a proposal of research outreach to the public (“InfoSyEnergy Outreach”), one year prior to the completion of doctoral degree programs, students are required to submit reports drawn from comprehensive and diversified insights into the social significance and value of their own research. Evaluations will particularly focus on their achievement levels from the perspective of defining and refining the social design scope.

  • Continued evaluations:

    Utilizing the InfoSyEnergy International Forum, InfoSyEnergy Joint Research Projects, InfoSyEnergy International Fieldwork, and other opportunities, mentors will provide continuing evaluations and guidance.

  • Final examination:

    Treating dissertation presentations as the final examination opportunity, in addition to the Tokyo Tech criteria for the awarding of doctoral degrees, achievement evaluations will also be conducted in light of the program’s educational goals and students’ professional growth, leading to decisions on program completion.
