The Graduate School of Engineering at Kyushu University boasts a 100-year history of producing breakthrough research with global implications.
The School is composed of twelve Departments, offering ten international programs. One of our major objectives is to foster ethically conscious graduates who have a deep understanding of society and the environment, in addition to their technical abilities. Furthermore, in order to exceed at the international level, our graduates are educated in matters of international culture and communication. For this reason, the School provides classes in communication, engineering ethics, and engineering management, along with the conventional engineering disciplines.
