The Master’s Program was established in 1984 with 4 divisions (Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Chemistry Environment Engineering and Civil Engineering). A course in Computer Science was started in 1994; a course in Materials Science in 1997.
The main aim of the Master’s Program is to educate researchers and engineers with up-to-date practical and advanced technical skills and creative global understanding in technology. At present, 20 to 30 students are allowed in each of the divisions per year.
Number of Students in the Master’s Program and Professors
The master’s program is composed of 6 divisions (Mechanical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Computer Science, Biotechnology and Environmental Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering).
