Interdepartmental Sub-Major programs

The graduate school offers an interdepartmental sub-major program to provide students with the opportunity to undertake systematic learning in fields lying outside their department (course/subject), in response to the integrated, interdisciplinary nature of a knowledge-based society as well as the needs of the individual student. Under this system, established in 2008, the gradate school recognizes the following two interdepartmental sub-major programs. Students who fulfill the prescribed completion requirements will receive a diploma and have the details of their completed sub-majors listed on their academic transcript.

Students can also undertake software developer internship programs for the purpose of brushing up on designing and programming skills. Students who complete the prescribed credits will receive a Medical & Welfare Information Processing Diploma.
