About

Greetings from Provost

The society is now beset by various problems stemming from the past development that tended to waste resources. Science and technology are no longer expected to merely satisfy intellectual curiosity but are expected to play a more active role in contributing to solve the problems we are facing in contemporary society, such as energy problems and the aging society. To use and share limited resources effectively and promote development, there is a need to reunite specialized and fragmented academic fields and construct collaborative frameworks through cooperation. Based on this vision, at the University of Tsukuba School of Science and Engineering, we feel that the discovery of fundamental truths and principles in natural sciences and the scientific contribution to the society through technological innovation should be tackled in an integrated manner.

Based on these educational policies, to meet social demands from the aspect of science and technology, this school comprises three colleges in the field of sciences (Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry) that educate students on fundamentals of natural sciences and three colleges in the field of engineering (Engineering Sciences, Engineering Systems, and Policy and Planning Sciences) that educate students on engineering and technology from viewpoints of diverse functional aspects. Students not only choose subjects from the college to which they belong but because they are free to study subjects provided by other colleges, they are able to receive a comprehensive education over a wide range of fields, beginning with fundamentals and moving on to putting their knowledge into practice.
