Education process of NAIST Graduate School of Information Science
CICP Project provides students with opportunities to plan and operate their research projects and raise communication skills. A certain number of proposals will be selected and be provided research fund.
Short-term Completion System:
The standard period for completing the Master's Program is two years, and, for the Doctoral Program, three years after the Master's degree. Outstanding students may however finish either program in a shorter time, the minimum periods required for a Master's Degree and a Doctoral Degree being one year and two years, respectively. Doctoral students however can complete the program in less than two years if their enrollment in the Master's and Doctoral Programs totals at least three years.
Students may complete their Master's or Doctoral Program at the end of one of the four quarters throughout the year (in March, June, September or December).
