Tokyo University of Science

Introduction

The philosophy of the Department of Physics, which was established in 1967, at the same time as the Faculty of Science and Technology, is to "carry out education and research for cultivating human resources who can research the true essence of things, and expand their findings toward further pursuit of truth and application based on their own power." The composition of the department includes broad areas ranging from pure physics to applied physics, or specifically, areas that are roughly divided into theoretical physics and experimental physics.

  • Acquire basic skills and applied skills simultaneously, by concentrating energy on experiments.
  • Assign physics labs for the 7 departments in the Faculty of Science and Technology, and foster the ability for students themselves to understand the true essence of things.
  • With regard to cutting-edge, specialized education, organize a curriculum full of labs and discussions and enable students to systematically learn principles and applications.
  • Cultivate able researchers with an abundant education as well as deep, specialized knowledge and applied skills regarding science, who can accurately respond to the demands of the times with a sharp problem-solving consciousness.
