Graduate students

Our laboratory is a part of the Department of Industrial Art, Graduate School of Systems Design, Tokyo Metropolitan University. To become our lab member as a graduate student, you must enroll in the official graduate program. You have to take the entrance exam and pass it (also see FAQ page). Although there is no Japanese Language test in the exam, we strongly encourage students to have enough skill in Japanese (especially speaking and reading) because our department has a few classes taught in English.

If you decide to take the entrance exam, please contact us via e-mail with your CV and your research proposal before you send the official application to the university.

Research students

We basically do NOT accept Research Student at this moment, except for the following three cases:

  • student who has passed the entrance exam of our department
  • student who is strongly recommended by an expert/researcher who we know
  • student who has strong math and programming skills that can be demonstrated by his/her portfolio or via activities on social media, such as GitHub, YouTube, and so on.

Please contact us via e-mail with your CV and your portfolio if you would like to join us as a research student.
