Jun. 09, 2020: "Application Procedure" for September 2020 has been uploaded.
The SGU course of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPC) is offered by the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Waseda University. The course regards research and education as being "two sides of a coin", prompting students of the program to connect different fields of science through participation in seminars, workshops, forums, and symposiums．
The course is supported by the Mathematics and Physics unit "Multiscale Analysis and Modelling", our top global university project that promotes research and education in collaboration with prominent researchers and partner universities in Europe and America.
As part of graduate education, the course offers a unique curriculum in an attempt to encourage flexible thinking, multiple perspectives, and interaction with different research fields, and to help nurture "multi-disciplinary knowledge". Researchers from each department in Faculty of Science and Engineering are involved in the development of the program.
The program carries out research and education by uncovering the mathematically "essential part" of the underlying structure of various phenomena through cross sectoral cooperation among researchers from multiple disciplines including mathematics, physics, information technology and engineering. The main focuses of the course are:
To meet these goals, the program conducts R&D, planning, and support for education for doctoral programs based on our multidisciplinary achievements. The mission of the course is to produce internationally competitive researchers and to produce individuals who create a new, comprehensive "system of intelligence" based on mathematics and physics that constitutes valuable contributions to information science and social science, not only to science and engineering, but acting as a bridge between mathematics, physics and the other branches of science. We offer excellent students financial assistance and support for their research activities to help cultivate such human resources.
