English-based Program (International Graduate Program) IGP

The International Graduate Programs on Advanced Science and Technology (IGP) were initiated by the Graduate School of Science and Technology in 2003, enabling international students without Japanese ability to earn Master’s and doctoral degrees at Keio. All academic affairs, including admission, lectures, research guidance, thesis writing and thesis defense, are conducted in English, although students do have the opportunity to study Japanese language and culture. The lectures in these programs are also open to enrollment by Japanese students, providing an international atmosphere for study and research.


The Graduate School of Science and Technology consists of three sub-schools and each sub-school consists of several centers of learning and research.

  1. School of Fundamental Science and Technology
    • Center for Mathematics
    • Center for Physics
    • Center for Molecular Chemistry
    • Center for Applied Physics and Physico-Informatics
    • Center for Chemical Biology
    • Center for Biosciences and Informatics
  2. School of Integrated Design Engineering
    • Center for Multidisciplinary and Design Science
    • Center for System Integration Engineering
    • Center for Electronics and Electrical Engineering
    • Center for Material Design Science
  3. School of Science for Open and Environmental Systems
    • Center for Space and Environment Design Engineering
    • Center for Science of Environment and Energy
    • Center for Applied and Computational Mechanics
    • Center for Information and Computer Science
    • Center for Open Systems Management

The students will become an official member of one of the sub-schools and conduct research under the supervision of a faculty advisor who is a member of one of the centers that belong to this particular sub-school. The advisor will be a member of one of the centers, but the student while being a member of a sub-school will not belong to any specific center. This is to allow the student to develop a broad perspective that is not restricted by the framework of his advisor's center. It should be noted that once a student has become an official member of a sub-school he cannot transfer to another sub-school.


Before submitting your application, please contact your prospective research advisor to discuss your research plan thoroughly. Applicants who have failed to do this prior to submitting their applications have a much smaller chance of acceptance.
For more information on our faculty members, use "Staff Search". Please choose your prospective research advisor from among the faculty members who are qualified to be a thesis advisor.
