MD program 2015 Spring Admission

Applications for spring admissions onto the 2015 Interdepartmental Doctoral Degree Program for Multi-dimensional Materials Science Leaders are now open.

Application period : February 9 ~ February 20, 2015

The Program for Leading Graduate Schools is a five year integrated Master's and Doctor's degree program initiated by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology in 2012. Since its establishment, a total of 62 Leading Graduate School programs have been created in 30 universities throughout country.

At Tohoku University, the Multi-dimensional Materials Science Leaders (MD) program was set up in 2013 with the first students enrolling in April 2014. The purpose of the program is to cultivate creative students to become leaders in the field of materials science.

Under the MD Program, Tohoku University has brought together the very best of its Materials Science expertise to train students to have a comprehensive understanding of materials from a from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Grants

To help secure the brightest students from both inside and outside Japan, the MD program provides financial support to selected graduate students. Support is provided in the form of monthly grants, between 150,000 JPY - 200,000.
