Graduate Program for Lifestyle Revolution based on Transdisciplinary Mobility Innovation

Prospective Students Information

The TMI Program allows students with different backgrounds to learn various content. The program targets students with diverse fields of specialization from science to liberal arts.

To realize a lifestyle revolution based on mobility innovation, both technologies to create mobility devices and urban planning/social design with real-world utilization of mobility devices are necessary. In addition, new regulations (the legal framework), ethics, and values must be researched. Consequently, different fields such as humanities, social science, engineering, informatics, environmental studies must collaborate. To conduct next-generation mobility innovation, we look forward to the participation of students from a wide range of specializations.

What are transdisciplinary mobility innovation human resources?
