A Stimulating Japanese-Inspired Research Culture
A distinctive research experience through membership of the innovative Japanese Kohza system, or ikohza, is provided at MJIIT. Within this framework, the Senpai-Kohai relationship or mentoring concept is realised from the moment a research student is admitted into the programme and becomes a member of the ikohza. Junior members are nurtured and closely supported by their seniors, and there is strong collaboration and continuous guidance from professors and other senior members of the research group. Furthermore, selected students are given the exclusive opportunity to conduct part of their dissertation in Japan with exposure to world-class research and gain the ability to develop knowledge and research skills in a challenging, rewarding and exciting field of study. MJIIT welcomes enquiries for research opportunities at the postgraduate level leading to the MPhil and PhD degrees.
