Be both a Biomedical Scientist and an Engineer. The world is waiting for such a specialist.

Do you want to apply your knowledge to industry or further academic research?
Whichever path you choose, the most important thing is to know what kind of person
you envision being at the end of that journey.

Due to the profound impact of technology on the medical field, modern treatment does not exist without technology. They are becoming one in the same, creating a demand for specialists who can seamlessly navigate
between the fields of medicine and technology.

Ph.D. Program in Humanics at University of Tsukuba is an innovative interdisciplinary program aiming
to educate the leaders of this new era.
Its unique doctoral-level curriculum is designed to help students learn the necessary skills,
develop a multi-disciplinary thought process,
and fluently communicate across the fields of biomedical sciences
and physical sciences, engineering, and informatics.
With its Double Mentor System, students will be guided by two world-leading experts
in their respective fields,
eventually serving as a bridge between these disciplines.

Join the program and start your journey to become an individual
that helps shape an unimagined and limitless future.
