In order to study at the Institute of Advanced Energy (IAE)

Let your dreams powered by advanced energy!

Procedure for acceptance of graduate students at IAE

There are twelve laboratories that accept students at the IAE, we focus on research that aims towards the next generation of advanced energy among a wide range of academic fields spanning physic, chemistry, biology and engineering, as well as education that trains and produces students capable of originality and international activity. In order to study at the IAE, it is possible to either be admitted into an affiliated laboratory of the Graduate School of Energy Science, or to be enrolled as a research student.

IAE is divided into different Departments. To join a lab in a given department, a student must come to an agreement with the lab supervisor. If that supervisor does not hold the title of professor, then the student must also receive additional permission from a IAE professor based on the advice of the lab supervisor. It is recommended that Applicants consult the lab supervisor prior to taking the entrance examination.

Application processApplication process

1. Select desired lab
2. Contact supervisor and inquire about possibility of being accepted as a student. Interview, if necessary.
3. Supervisor notifies applicant of result of (2).
4. Prospective student takes Graduate School of Energy Science, Kyoto University entrance examination.

*Master program may not require the prior agreement from the lab. supervisor. Please confirm the entrance examination information of the Graduate School of Energy Science for details.

For information on application procedures and examination dates, please contact the Graduate School of Energy Science, Kyoto University.

Procedure for acceptance of research students at IAE
Apart from enrolling as a graduate student, it is possible to participate in research activities by enrolling as a research student at the IAE. If you wish to become a research student, please contact your prospective supervisor under whom want to study and obtain a consent of acceptance. After the appointed proceedings have been completed, you will become a research student. Please note that degrees are not given to research students. For more details, please contact your prospective supervisor.
