     One of the academic goals of the Graduate School of Engineering is the cultivation of talented individuals equipped with a systematic knowledge of science and technology, and an engineering mindset, capable of responsibly conducting research, development, planning, design, production, management and policy formulation in relation to engineering and its application. A deeper purpose is to contribute to the sustainability and development of society through pioneering new frontiers in research and actively participating in research that may lead to new technological innovations.

     The Graduate School of Engineering has 18 departments featuring principal engineering technology spanning a wide range of fields. The objective of graduate school education is the acquisition of a more advanced degree of engineering knowledge and research ability. In particular, future research and development is carried out autonomously in the Doctoral program, with an aim to also acquire leadership ability. The practice of graduate school education differs by department; however, schooling by means of the development of special fields of study has become increasingly important in the Master's program. Research at the Graduate School of Engineering is not just restricted to the "hard" studies centered on experimentation. Instead, diversity in the range of research fields is increasing with research concerning information, artificial intelligence and CAD/CAM; research relating to the environment, disaster prevention, energy and urban social systems; and research into the interdisciplinary fields of life science and medicine which focus on the human. Research is conducted while maintaining a cooperative relationship with other fields of engineering, resulting in the pioneering and application of various new fields. Recently, society's deep concern regarding environmental problems has come to be reflected in research, with issues relating to society and the environment continuing to be stressed in every field of engineering.

     The importance of the fields of Informatics and Life Sciences is continuing to increase, and problems that cannot be resolved within the traditional framework of engineering, such as those of environmental studies, are increasingly becoming the target of research. In order to respond to this age of borderless fields of study, more flexible forms of research structure are becoming necessary.

     The Graduate School of Engineering is the largest Graduate School at the University of Tokyo with almost a third of the overseas students studying at the University. Full and continuous support for overseas students is important, as is the further internationalization of Japanese students. At the Graduate School of Engineering, the concept of further internationalization in education and research, and specific policies based on it, are continuously scrutinized, and great effort is devoted to the enrichment of overseas student education and the expansion of international research exchange.
