11 Academic Calendar (AY ) Dates are subject to change. The academic year (AY) will be divided into quarters, with two quarters in each term. (Some courses may last longer than a quarter.) Admission (all degree programs) Term 1 Admission (master s and doctoral degree programs) Term 2 Apr. 1 June 12 June 13 Aug. 10 Sept. 23 Nov. 28 Nov. 29 Feb. 11 (includes winter vacation) 1Q 2Q 3Q 4Q Graduation Graduation Start and end dates for each quarter will vary slightly from year to year. Students enrolled in master s and doctoral programs can also graduate at the end of June or December. Registration, classes, make-up classes, and final exams Summer vacation Spring vacation Course registration will be carried out at the beginning of each term for the comprised two quarters. (Registration changes can be made at the beginning of 2Q and 4Q.) A preparatory period (lasting a few days) will be set between 1Q and 2Q and between 3Q and 4Q when no classes will be held. This period will allow s time to review material from the previous quarter and prepare for the next quarter. Grades will be released on a quarterly basis on the Web System for Students and Faculty. However, formal awarding of grades will occur at the end of each term. Quarter Registration and Changes Classes Make-Up Classes and Final Exams Preparatory Period Release of Grades Awarding of Grades (Academic transcript) Graduation 1Q Registration: Apr. 5 May 29 May 30 June 8 June 9 12 Late June Changes for 2Q courses: 2Q mid June to early July June 13 July 31 Aug Early Sept.

(Dates will change slightly from year to year.) Class schedule Classes will be organized in 45-minute periods. Most classes will span two periods (90 minutes). Example: Course A (worth two credits) is taught twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays during periods 1 and 2. (Note: Not all courses have classes twice a week.) A course within a quarter will consist of 15 classes and 2 make-up classes. 11

12 Aiming to Become One of the World s Top Ten Research Universities Inspiring ambition with the new Lecture Theatre New undergraduates will attend lectures by leading Tokyo Tech researchers and faculty, Nobel Prizelevel scientists, and industry experts. Students will be exposed to the wonders of research and motivated to pursue careers in science and technology. TOKYO TECH LECTURE THEATRE New curricula tuned to those of the world s leading universities Invite faculty from the world s top universities Academic tuning for easier credit transfer Encourage study abroad for all s World s Top Universities Tokyo Tech Accreditation of credits & degrees 英 国 王 立 科 学 研 究 所 レクチャーシアター ( 協 力 :ブリティッシュ カウンシル) 12

13 Tools for Self-Initiated Learning and an Enhanced Support System Active learning Through group work, discussions, and presentations, s will take more active roles in their education. Online learning Massive open online courses (MOOC) will provide greater flexibility and allow for study both on and off campus. Students will cultivate initiative, communication skills, and leadership skills, and be better equipped to prepare for and review lessons. Enhanced support system Academic advisors will support s in their goals, education plans, and employment searches. Learning portfolios will help provide seamless transitions between degree programs. 事 前 事 後 の 学 修 が 充 実 するため To support their ambitions, s will be able to consult their academic advisors at any time. All s will have at least one scheduled meeting with their academic advisors per academic year. 授 業 中 は 理 解 を 深 めることに 集 中 Learning portfolios Students will maintain an extensive record of their learning progress and outcomes. Learning portfolios will include objectives, education plans and check sheets, completed assignments, reports, and lists of earned credits. 13

14 Seamless Curricula Seamless transition from bachelor s to master s programs The education system allows for a smoother transition from the bachelor s to master s degree program. (Students are conferred a bachelor s degree and must pass the entrance examination to enroll in the master s degree program.) Undergraduate and graduate curricula are offered under the same departments to eliminate discontinuity between degree programs. Independent research project (6 months; equivalent to the current bachelor s thesis research) A new advanced independent research project will be offered. Students can take this course after completion of their independent research project to review their undergraduate studies, prepare for the master s degree program, participate in societal activities, or study abroad. Bachelor s s who make the appropriate achievement-based progress may take up to 10 credits of master s-level courses. Taking master s-level courses will allow bachelor s s to effectively coordinate their 100- to 300-level undergraduate coursework and 400- to 500-level master s coursework. Bachelor s s may take courses in graduate minor curricula. (Courses will be credited towards their minor on completion of the master s degree program.) Course Numbering System 600-Level 500-Level 400-Level 300-Level 200-Level 100-Level Doctoral 博 士 論 Thesis 文 研 究 Research 博 士 専 門 科 目 Doctoral Major Courses Master s 修 士 論 文 Thesis 研 究 Research 修 士 専 門 科 目 Master s Major Courses Undergraduate Major 学 士 課 Courses 程 専 門 科 目 教 養 科 目 Liberal Arts Courses Seamless transition from master s to doctoral programs The education system allows for a smoother transition from the master s to doctoral program. Master s and doctoral programs will be linked to prevent discontinuity in curricula. (Students are conferred master s and doctoral degrees on completion of the respective programs. Master s s must undergo screening to enter the doctoral degree program.) In addition to research seminars, major courses and research-related courses will become required to emphasize study as well as research. To provide broader training, career development and liberal arts courses will also be required.* Curricula will be designed to meet the needs of aspiring s who wish to earn their doctoral degrees in 3 to 4 years. On completion of their master s coursework, s will be assigned either a master s thesis or independent research project for master s program by the faculty of their major. To cultivate global awareness, s will be strongly recommended to study abroad before they complete their master s degree programs.* *Also applies to master s s who took advanced courses during their bachelor s degree programs. 14

15 Focused and Interdisciplinary Options Curricula that offer greater breadth Interdisciplinary Option Students seeking to complement their major studies may pursue a minor by taking courses in systematically designed minor curricula or courses in other majors to meet minor coursework requirements. Focused Option Students seeking to concentrate on their major studies may pick and choose courses from other majors. Students can choose either Minor 1. Intended for master s s 2. All major fields of study (excluding the professional degree program) will also have minors. 3. Students who obtain the required credits for the minor will receive a certificate of completion, and their coursework will be recorded in their transcripts. Interdisciplinary Minor 1. Intended for master s and doctoral s 2. Curricula will span multiple departments and majors, covering cutting-edge fields and key social issues. 3. Students who obtain the required credits for the minor will receive a certificate of completion, and their coursework will be recorded in their transcripts. 15

16 Courses Taught in English and International Opportunities Tokyo Tech s take up the challenge. Courses Taught in English March % of courses are currently taught in English 2019 ~ All major courses will be taught in English (with some exceptions) Training for faculty to teach in English is being provided. Study Abroad and Other International Opportunities Students will be strongly recommended to study abroad or participate in other international opportunities before they complete their master s programs. Tokyo Tech will reinforce its support system by forming more academic partnerships promoting study abroad programs. 16
