Mathematical Science Course


Course Outline

In the Mathematical Science Course students study mathematical methods to gain a good foundation for a career in science and technology. Students study mathematical and computer science, focusing on algebra, geometry, analysis, discrete mathematics, and quantum mechanics.

Course Features

Most people feel a sense of exhilaration when they solve a mathematics or physics problem. It is one of the appeals of studying math and physics. It is also important in mathematical science to make new discoveries by thinking about problems in a different way. In this course, we implement small group learning where students enjoy studying math and physics and repeat the experience of breakthroughs by finding explanations for phenomena they did not understand before, and acquire the ability to look for new discoveries on their own. Furthermore, students study English with native teachers to nurture their ability to function on a global stage. We also educate some students with an eye on cultivating researchers in the fields of mathematical science in the advanced science and math course.

What kind of human resources are we training

We are cultivating our students' talent to think logically and flexibly, and to use mathematical science concepts to address practical issues based on their study of mathematical science and information and communication science.
