Our modern society consumes vast quantities of energy which has direct environmental impact. Gradually, energy resources will shift from fossil fuels to renewables to mitigate climate change in order to realize a sustainable society. To this end, it is essential to develop global scientists and engineers who have deep knowledge of energy and environmental issues.

In energy course graduate students receive an education in various disciplines such as chemistry, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, material sciences, chemical engineering, and so on. Students can examine energy and environmental issues from the view point of your specialized field. The concept of energy, however, has not just scientific and engineering aspects but has social and economical aspects. Energy course at Tokyo Tech provides you a systematic and integrated program to train your specialized field as well as to acquire broad knowledge in related fields.
