Abstract

An example of materials science education in Japan is given. Then key factors in materials science education are discussed. We emphasize that it is important to give students a dream and pleasure in new discovery, and the ambition to open a new frontier field by artificially synthesizing a new material. In this respect the following two subjects are chosen as those appropriate for materials science education, in particular for a graduate course; the dream of a room temperature superconductor and the ambition to see crystal growth visually.
