1) University of Cambridge, Department of Chemistry / Department of Engineering
2) University of Oxford, Department of Chemistry / Department of Engineering Science / Department of Materials
3) University of Warwick, School of Engineering
4) University of Southampton
5) Ecole Polytechnique
6) Pierre et Marie Curie University
7) Universidad Politecnica de Madrid
8) RWTH Aachen

Outline of the Program:
Inbound exchange students join a professor’s laboratory and conduct a research under faculty supervision. They can also participate in special summer courses, such as High Tech Japan and Survival Japanese. In August, the annual Multi-Disciplinary International Student Workshop (MISW) is held, in which the students present their summer research results. Awards are given for the best oral and poster presentations at the workshop.

Status at Tokyo Tech:
International Exchange Student

School Affiliation:
The students must affiliate one of Engineering Schools (School of Engineering, School of Material Science and Engineering, and School of Environmental and Society)

Classes and Credits:
Class attendance is not mandatory for SERP students, but those who wish to take part in the courses listed below are recommended to register within the specified period (to be announced). SERP students cannot officially earn credits at Tokyo Tech. However, the Institute will issue academic transcripts to students at the end of each quarter so they can transfer credits to their own university.

Eligibility (at the time of application):
Postgraduate students (PhD or Master’s) or final year undergraduate students of the partner institutions

Laboratory Affiliation at Tokyo Tech:
A host professor is assigned

Program Fees and Tuitions:
Waived

Enrolment Period:
3 months in summer

Capacity:
2 to 3 students from each institution

Application Procedures:
Apply through the home university SERP coordinator
