IGP: International Graduate Program

IGP: International Graduate Program

We are looking for IGP(A) or IGP(C) only students who want to apply to the Mechanical Engineering Course. If you are interested in joining our lab and studying with us, please contact us via this form.

Please read the University's IGP webpage carefully before contacting us.


We are recruiting students who are interested in novel actuators and industrial robots.

Now, prospective students are contacting us for winter 2022 admission.

We would appreciate it if you could consult with us earlier than usual, as several hurdles must be crossed.


Our laboratory is funded by Yaskawa Electric Corporation. Therefore, our research theme will be decided by a discussion with Yaskawa. Furthermore, if Yaskawa does not decide to continue funding, the laboratory itself will be terminated. However, in that case, you will be able to continue the same research theme under the supervision of other professors, who will be your associate supervisor. In other words, your research for your master's thesis or doctor's thesis will continue in the same theme even if our laboratory is discontinued, although your supervisor will change.

For the same reason, we have to submit more documents than other labs. Therefore, you must notify us of your interest in the program as soon as the application information is disclosed. And we need to finish some preparations for the procedure at least 1.5 months before the application deadline. We appreciate your cooperation.
