International Programs of Graduate School of Mathematics


The latest Guidelines for Application (pdf, doc)

Introduction

Graduate School of Mathematics at Kyushu University offers two international programs for international students. All the lectures, thesis work and guidance will be carried out in English. The programs have started on October 1st, 2010. The Graduate School has more than seventy academic staff members covering a broad range of mathematics and related areas, and is one of the hubs of mathematics education and research in Japan. For more details, refer to our Staff List * and Education & Research Map. The school has a long tradition of impressive achievements in the education and research of both applied and pure mathematics. A further characteristic of the school is its advanced level of research that includes collaborations and exchange with private industry, which is supplemented by fundamental teaching through almost a dozen regular open research seminars, colloquiums, and various intensive lectures. A wide range of lectures will be delivered, with topics ranging from pure mathematics such as algebra and geometry, to applied mathematics such as probability, statistics, and computational mathematics. For more details, refer to the list of lectures below. In addition, abundant resources to support study and research activities are made available to students, such as books and on-line journals through the University Library (one of the most prominent libraries in Japan), high-performance computers and a high-speed network, and various kinds of software such as computer algebra. In this manner, study and research activities in this program are fully geared towards supporting students of all backgrounds and interests.
* The staff list referred to here consists of those academic staffs who belong to our graduate school at present. Please refer to the list attached to the Guidelines for Application (pdf, doc).

Master's Program

In this program, a master’s degree in mathematics will be awarded after completion:
     i.  More than 30 credits and at least two years of full-time study. 
    ii.  Submission of a thesis after appropriate research under the guidance of a supervisor. 
   iii.  Successful acceptance of the thesis and a passing grade in the final examination.
After completing the program, students may obtain jobs that require advanced mathematical specialization, or proceed to the Doctoral Program in Mathematics in pursuit of further research.

Number Accepted: 5



Doctoral Program

In this program, the degree of Doctor of Mathematics will be awarded upon completion of:
      i.  More than 10 credits after at least three years of full-time study.
     ii.  The submission of a doctoral dissertation after appropriate research instruction under
          the student’s supervisor,
    iii.  The successful acceptance of the dissertation and the passing of the final examination.
If students wish, they can also participate in long-term internships in companies (mainly Japanese companies, but some foreign companies are also available) for more than three months if they are able to meet the conditions that are required by the company. For details, refer to the web page of Doctoral Long-term Internship Program. After completing the program, students may seek to play significant roles in research/development projects that require advanced mathematical skills, in companies or governmental organizations, or obtain academic positions as mathematicians.

Number Accepted: 3
