Entrance examinations (Special Selection of Working Individuals) are available for working individuals who have been working for a certain period, where working individuals are able to utilize their experience gained in their career. Examinees are able to present their experience and achievements gained in their career in an oral examination.
Our Degree Programs are actively accepting working individuals, starting from AY2020 entrance examination by further increasing the limits on the special selection of working individuals.
From the point of view of further expanding the learning opportunities of a diverse range of students, this system is for accepting systematic studying through examinations on an individual basis, when students request to complete an academic program systematically over a certain term (3 or 4 years for a Master’s Program, and 4 or 5 years for a Doctoral Program) exceeding the standard course term (2 years for a Master’s Program, and 3 years for a Doctoral Program).
Students applicable to any one of the following who have difficulty completing academic programs at a graduate school within the standard course term, and desire to systematically set an academic program exceeding the course term in advance in order to complete a program.
1. Students who have an occupation
2. Students who need to take care of family members, such as children or the elderly
3. Students with disabilities
4. Students who are recognized as having a justifiable reason
The annual tuitions of students who are permitted to extend the period of registration is obtained by multiplying the years equivalent to a standard course term of the program by the annual tuition which must be paid for a standard course term, and the obtained amount is divided by the years of the extended period of registration, only for the approved period of the extended registration. (Refer to the “List of Tuition Payments Accompanying Extended Period of Registration” for details.)
For students who desire to use the system from the first year, please submit the related applications within the admissions process period to the Dean of the Degree Programs in Systems and Information Engineering upon approval obtained through prior consultation with the leaders and supervisors of specific degree programs.
For students who desire to use the system from the second year after admission, follow the same procedure by January of the first year, and January of the second year for students who desire to use the system from the third year a doctoral program.
When it is necessary to change the period of the permitted extension of registration, please submit the related applications, such as the Change Request to the Dean of the Degree Programs in Systems and Information Engineering.

Fast-track Doctoral Program for Working Individuals is for completing doctoral program in one year at the shortest to acquire a doctoral degree, which usually takes three years in a standard course term for working individuals who have certain research achievements and abilities. In this program, supervisors advice you to complete a doctoral thesis based on your research achievements accumulated while working.
This program also adopts an “”Achievement Level Assessment System,”” which is to set seven items that must be achieved by students along with the creation of a thesis in order to perform periodic assessments, so that students are able to reliably check their level of achievement. Also, the quality of the degree granted by the program is guaranteed because the program itself is externally evaluated.
* Please refer to the “Fast-track Doctoral Program Website” for detailed information.
Doctoral Program in Risk and Resilience Engineering offers day and evening courses where working individuals are able to acquire an education on the Tokyo Campus while continuing to work (called the Day and Evening Class Program for Risk and Resilience Engineering) in order to promote developmental expansion of graduate school education for working individuals.
Students are recruited within the framework of the special selection of working individuals in the Risk and Resilience Engineering specific degree programs, and qualified individuals for the special selection of working individuals for doctoral programs in the degree programs in Systems and Information Engineering are selected. (Please refer to the Application Guidelines for details)
