The Quantum Engineering Design Course (QEDC) is a special graduate school program (Master/Doctor degree) that aims to equip the new generation of young scientists with cutting edge research skills necessary to anticipate and adapt to the ever-changing needs of society equipped with a broad perspective of Science and Technology.
The QEDC is an English program, and to date, several students from different countries, e.g. the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Bangladesh, Turkey, etc., have already been a part of this program.
As the QEDC program is research intensive, each student will be assigned to work directly under the academic supervision of a university professor. Furthermore, during the first year of the course, each student will be assigned to a peer tutor who will provide individual assistance and guidance in their study and research, as well as assistance in instructions expressed in the Japanese language and advice on daily life.
The Quantum Engineering Design Course will:
- Elucidate emergent material functions, based on fundamental, microscopic-level understanding of the natural phenomena involved (QUANTUM);
- Realize a new generation of functional materials and devices (ENGINEERING); and
- Propose novel alternative materials and technologies, for such applications as fuel cells and solar cells, among others, that are energy efficient and environmentally-friendly (DESIGN).
Researchers and research topics tackled, either theoretically and/or experimentally, span across the areas of Science, Engineering, Engineering Science, and Information Science & Technology.
