Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

 

Q1: It is necessary to write a research summary of applicants’ graduation thesis on the back of Questionnaire Sheet for Master’s Course Applicant. What should I write if I haven’t started any research on my graduation thesis?

 

A1: You could write either about your project studies that replace your graduation thesis or about what you would like to research after entering school. Power-point presentation could be prepared the same way as above.

 

Q2: Are there any school-designated textbooks for “Life Science”, one of the Basic Subjects?

 

A2: There are no designated textbooks in particular.
c.f. Students from the College of Arts and Sciences use Life Science (Revised 3rd Edition) published by Yodosha.

 

Q3: What do you mean by "Circle 1 out of 2 (Choice of group)" on the Questionnaire Sheet for Master's Course in the Guide to Entrance Examination?

 

A3: It means you are required to choose one from two groups (“Physics/Electronics/Mechanicals Group” and “Chemistry/Materials/Biology Group” ) and circle it. Please make sure not to choose one from the same group.

 

Q4: Is it possible to write my choice of laboratories on both “List(s) of supervising professors of your choice" on the Guide to Entrance Examination?

 

A4: No. You are required to choose one from two groups( “Physics/Electronics/Mechanicals Group” and “Chemistry/Materials/Biology Group”) and fill out your preference from list of Supervising professor. The List you fill out must be of the same group you choose in "Choice of group" on the Questionnaire Sheet for Master’s Course Applicant. You should not choose Physics as your 1st choice, Chemistry as your 2nd, Electronics as your 3rd, for example.
