Doctoral Program of Bioindustrial Sciences features education aimed at cultivating doctorate holders capable of working as practitioners involved in the sustainable development, improvement and technological development of life sciences focused on food, resources and energy development and environmental conservation technology, to which great importance is attached in the 21st century.

In contrast to the nurturing of graduate students in conventional universities, which generally focused on academic career paths, this program aims to cultivate researchers with global standard who can respond to the need for the establishment of strategy and policy from an international perspective. Through the six education and research fields that integrate natural science and social science, this program seeks to cultivate experts who can contribute to the creation of the life industry and the acquisition and distribution of the biological resources that are its raw materials, as well as contributing to the creation of new industries and the securing of intellectual property.
