The outcomes of the "Honors Program" are introduced here.
The existing integrated system was redesigned to establish three types of programs (Type A, Type B1, and Type B2) according to the duration in Undergraduate School and Graduate School.
By using the program, students can complete a combined Bachelor and Master's course in 5 years and take a maximal one-year special leave of absence (the Honors Year) for personal use.
The number of participants in the whole Honors Program is steadily increasing, with over 30 each year. In AY2019, the rate of achievement against target indicators was 131%.
(4-year undergraduate and 1-year Master's Program)
(3-year Undergraduate and 2-year Master's Program)
(3-year Undergraduate (early graduation) and 2-year Master's Program)

Students who took the Honors Year participated in an internship at an IT company in Tokyo, worked at an institution in Fukushima, or prepared for certification examinations.
Also, a student won a Best Paper Award in an international conference. Students who use the Honors Program are actively involved in off-campus activities and are active in international communities.
With the improvement of the Integrated Undergraduate-Master's the program, the Unique Talent Discovery Program has been established to discover and develop undergraduates unique talents.
By using the program, students can get early assignment to a graduation thesis supervisor and receive financial support to participate in extracurricular activities such as international contests and education programs.
The number of participants in AY2019 was 5, which has steadily increased since the program started in AY2017.
Mr. HIDAKA Masato (Enrollment in 2017)
When Mr. HIDAKA was selected as a participant of the summer school of Mars in China, his supervisor recommended him to the Honors Program and he was certified for the Unique Talent Discovery Program. He received financial support including transportation fees and activity fees. Further, he challenged himself by trying other activities using program support.
