Our laboratory consists of 25 members in total (4 faculty members, 2 staff members, 5 doctoral students, 9 master’s students, and 5 undergraduate students) working on research. We are seeking candidates who are interested in our master’s or doctoral program. Working adults who seek a doctorate degree are also very welcome. Hokkaido University has a system called (e-learning). For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us. If you are a student or have a degree in a chemistry-related field or from a technical college, you have the option to take oral examinations instead of written ones to enter the graduate school. You should not worry even if you have only little knowledge in metallurgy. You can expand your knowledge and develop skills in our lab to build a brighter future! For details, please email the professor with whom you wish to study.
