■ On the entrance examination

The subjects of the master course entrance examination are English, Specialized subjects (short essays), Undergraduate grades, and Oral examinations (online). The subjects of the doctoral course entrance examination are English, Undergraduate and graduate school grades, and oral examination (online, some subjects are excused for master course graduates from the Department of Advanced Energy). For undergraduate and graduate school grades, you will be required to submit a GPA calculated according to the specified method. For English, you will be required to submit a TOEFL or TOEIC score sheet.

Hoping that various educational and research activities in our department, with the keyword “energy”, will be carried out on a wide range of personal backgrounds, we will make a comprehensive selection, focusing on science and engineering backgrounds.

We are promoting academic fusion by accepting students from diverse backgrounds; More than half of all the examinees in the master’s program are from universities other than the University of Tokyo. Most of the students who go on to the doctoral program are from the master’s program of this major, but about 10% are enrolled from graduate schools of other universities or other majors of the University of Tokyo. About 10 to 20% of the students are international students, and most of them go on to the doctoral program.
