  1. Policy and outline

    1. Policy of the selection procedure

      The applicants should obtain the approval of the professors in our department before they will apply in all types. Our department has the policy based on the assignment of professors in the types of selection procedure. We will not receive application without the approval of the professors in our department.

    2. Outline of the types of selection

      There are two types of selection for the master's and doctoral programs: regular selection (II) and document-based selection (III). The eligibility for each selection is different.

      Eligibility refers to the qualifications necessary to apply; it does not mean application success. In addition, "foreign university (graduate school)" in the following text refers to "university (graduate school) physically located overseas."

    3. Submission of the application form

      Applicants for the selections must obtain and submit the application form to the Graduate School of Engineering office. The guidelines for the submission can be found in the following links:

      Other useful information regarding the admission procedure can be found in the following web page.

  2. Regular selection

    1. Eligibility

      All foreign applicants who satisfy the conditions of eligibility for graduate school as stipulated by the Graduate School of Engineering Regulations are eligible.

    2. Examination time

      For master's program applicants, the examination is held at the same time as the entrance examination for Japanese applicants. The examination is conducted once a year, generally in the end of August through the beginning of September.

      For doctoral program applicants, selection is held twice a year in September and February.

    3. Entrance time

      Successful September applicants may enter graduate school in October of the examination year or in April of the following year.

      Successful February applicants may enter graduate school in April of the same year.

    4. Examination outline

      The examination is the same as the examination for Japanese applicants. The examination for the master's program consists of papers in Mathematics, Physics, and Foreign Language (English). The examination for the doctoral program consists of papers in Foreign Language (English) and Technical Knowledge of Precision Engineering (see http://www.pe.t.u-tokyo.ac.jp/admission/index.html, for more details about the technical terms).

    5. Application procedure

      Applicants for the doctoral program must obtain permission to apply for the program from the professor whom the applicant desires to study under at graduate school. This means that the applicant must directly contact, consult, and obtain permission from the professor before applying.

      Applicants both for the master's and the doctoral programs must obtain and submit the application form to the Graduate School of Engineering office at the beginning of July. Please note that the application form consists of papers to be submitted to the Graduate School of Engineering as well as to the Department of Precision Engineering.

  3. Document-based selection

    Document-based selection is not based on a written examination. Among the foreign students who have graduated from a foreign university (graduate school) and satisfy the graduate school examination eligibility as stipulated in the Graduate School of Engineering Regulations, only those applicants who have achieved a score higher than stipulated scores for the English Qualification Test and GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) are eligible.

    For more details, please contact the professor whom the applicant desires to study under at graduate school.
