We welcome students who are motivated to study about Advanced Medical Devices.

As an undergraduate student

Students in undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering (including international course) at Kyushu University, will be invited to Lab tour twice in a year, and have an opportunity to select the lab usually in March. Please refer to the lab introduction document for the overall concept of the lab. Contact us if you have any questions, anytime.

As a master’s degree student

As we are studying in the interdisciplinary area, the lab bridges over Department of Mechanical Engineering and Graduate School of Systems Life Science. Those who wish to study with us in the graduate school, have opportunity to select either one of the departments. Although the research activity in the lab would be same or very close between two departments, the two departments provide distinguishing programs and enrollment systems. If you have any questions, please contact us, anytime.
If you plan to join the lab through MEXT scholarship with university recommendation, please send us your academic transcript with GPA, of your immediate academic degree to evaluate the eligibility for application.

As a Ph.D. student

As same as a master’s degree student, there are two ways of studying with us in Ph.D. course. Note that the lab will not be able to provide salary to Ph.D. student, and encourage the student to obtain scholarship such as from JSPS. If you would like to study in Ph. D. course, please contact us, anytime.
