Education

Overview

At this research center, emphasis is put not only on research activities but also on educational activities. The teaching staffs belong to a master’s course of the Graduate School of Medicine and Engineering, Educational Department (Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Department of Applied Chemistry), doctoral program (Department of Engineering for Functional Material System), or a 5-year Special Doctoral Program for Green Energy Conversion Science and Technology. They are in charge of the curriculum, lectures, and practicums of the educational programs and act as advisors to their students in their research work. They also look after the lectures for students of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Department of Applied Chemistry and Department of Science for Advanced Materials, and act as advisors to the fourth-year students for their graduation thesis. Regarding advice for a graduation thesis, it is applicable to students who have entered the faculty before 2011 and have entered the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Department of Applied Chemistry, whereas those students who have entered the faculty after 2012, the Department of Applied Chemistry and Department of Science for Advanced Materials are applicable.

Those interested in the following research topics and those who wish to receive advice for a graduation thesis, master’s course, or doctoral course may directly contact the faculty members.

For detailed information regarding the entrance examination, please view the pages for information on entrance examinations for the University of Yamanashi and information on entrance examinations for the Engineering Department, University of Yamanashi.

At this research center, common waiting rooms are provided as a measure for making it simple to get advice from several teachers. There are no individual waiting rooms per teacher for the students. At present, two spans are provided on each of the first, the second and third floors. It also aims at enhancing the interaction between students from different research fields by making them share tables with students from other departments.
