New Dual Masters Degrees with Tsukuba University
Grenoble has expanded its relationship with partner Tsukuba University, signing agreements to create new dual degree master's programs in physics and engineering.
These new programs represent a step forward in relations with the prestigious Japanese institution, which is known for its internationalization efforts and its top quality research.

Grenoble and Tsukuba have been working together since 1997: in addition to regular student exchanges, the partners also currently supervise 6 joint PhD students, two French and four Japanese. Over the years, more than 100 students have travelled between the two countries on exchange.

These exchanges allow our students to take advantage of the scientific ties between the UGA and Tsukuba, who established an international laboratory (LIA) in nanosciences in 2016. The lab allows for high level research in materials science, engineering and applied physics, including projects in magnetism and superconductors. This lab expanded on previous research collaboration, including a series of conferences and workshops on materials for energy, diamond power devices, and permanent magnets.

Tsukuba is particularly strong in the sciences and innovation, and, like the UGA, is located in an area filled with innovation, international business, and research and development: Tsukuba Science City features over 300 research institutions. In 2013, Tsukuba was one of 13 elite universities selected for prestigious national funding as part of the Japanese government’s Top Global University Project.
