  • Specialization in Architecture (Y-GSA), Department of Architecture and Urban Culture
  • Y-GSA (Yokohama Graduate School of Architecture) is a highest-level intensive course in Japan that trains architects with studio education in small classes. Students can receive practical architecture and urban design instructions from Professor Architects (practitioner faculty members positioned only in IUI) in the large renovated “Power Plant Studio”, and obtain master’s degree by portfolio submission, rather than a master’s thesis. The specialization accepts 18 students per year with total capacity of 36 students.

  • International Graduate School of Infrastructure (IGSI), Department of Infrastructure and Urban Society
  • This specialization aims at training human resources who can primarily play an active part in the Civil Engineering field for resolution of problems in the cities of emerging and developing countries. We provide practical education with an emphasis on studio education. Also, in this specialization, all the lectures and studio education and master’s thesis guidance is carried out in English. This is because the specialization is not intended only for Japanese people, and is also developed for education of international students including Master’s Program students from the government-sponsored foreign student special program of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
