Program Policy

To develop a strong research interest in your own scientific field.
To develop multi-disciplinary insight.
To obtain a capacity for leadership in fields of academia, industry and government.

Program Period

4 years (beginning from a master's course's 2nd year to the 3rd year of a doctor's course). The program will start in April for all students entering graduate school in April of the current year or October of the previous year.

About Research Units

All Graduate Schools and Research Institutes and Centers in the science, engineering and informatics fields at Osaka University jointly organize research units that reach beyond the frames of the graduate schools themselves
Students choose and belong to one of the following research units:

◇Electronics and Informatics Research Unit
◇Life Science Research Unit
◇Photonics Research Unit
◇Fundamental and Astro Physics Research Unit
◇Environmental Materials & Joining Design Research Unit
◇Materials Science Research Unit**
◇Humanware Research Unit**
◇Pioneering Quantum Beam Application Research Unit**
◇Others to be added*

* To be established in April 2021.
** The Materials Science Research Unit and Humanware Research Unit are mainly managed by the Program for Leading Graduate Schools schemes, and the Pioneering Quantum Beam Application Research Unit is managed by the Doctoral Program for World-leading Innovative & Smart Education. The content of these programs and application guidelines are different. Please contact the administrative offices of these programs for details.

Honors Program Curriculum

Students need to take 10 credits to complete this program.
・Science, Engineering and Informatics Laboratory Rotation I, II, III, IV (1 to 4 credits)
・Science, Engineering and Informatics Internship I, II, III, IV (1 to 4 credits)
・English for Science and Engineering (2 credits)
・Ethical, Legal and Social Issues (2 credits)
・Classes taken in other departments rather than the students' own (2 credits)

●Students will be able to apply part of these credits toward the completion of their master's or doctor's course.

Laboratory Rotation

Students choose another laboratory in their research units and study new research methods and themes for 3 to 9 weeks. This is designed to foster new skills and abilities

Internship

Internships (domestic or international) are required. Credits are applied at 1 credit per three-week internship stay.
Students are able to decide their destination and internship duties after discussions with their supervisors. A program mentor will provide planning support. This program strongly encourages students to engage in fields and research methods different from their own to broaden their perspective in multiple fields.

Domestic and international travel expenses for research/training will be supported by this program separate from any scholarships.

Grant-type Scholarship

After conducting a document review, these scholarships are awarded at 240,000 yen per year to a student starting from the 2nd year of a master's course, and 540,000 yen per year to a student in their doctor's course. These awarded scholarships do not need to be repaid.

Scholarship Qualifications

In each year, grants are awarded to students in accordance with the conditions below:
1) Those who are not taking a leave of absence.
2) Those who do not receive any research fellowships for young scientists from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science or the Japanese Government Scholarship.
3) Those who do not receive any grant-type scholarships of more than 100,000 yen per month from corporations or foundations.
