On Tuesday, April 5, the 2022 spring entrance ceremony was held in the Millennium Hall.
NAIST eagerly promotes admission of students both from Japan and overseas who have strong basic academic skills regardless of their undergraduate background as well as researchers, engineers and others currently working actively in society who have clearly defined goals and aspirations for the future as well as a strong interest and enthusiasm for the fields of frontier science and technology. This spring 428 graduate students were granted admission to NAIST.
This spring, the ceremony was mainly held at the Millennium Hall as the main venue, and was broadcasted via internet to several places to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection.
