The graduate school entrance examination is held at the end of August. At this time, students may choose whatever field they would like to major in. However the students must have acquired the necessary basic specialized academic skills to enter that field. In order to open the doors to a broader range of students, many major fields utilize a variety of test sections and allow the students to select the ones to answer. Some major fields also use a system of recommended admission for students with outstanding academic records. In particular as described before, outstanding students can graduate and advance to graduate school after three years.

The years required to complete a graduate school course are two years for the Master's course and three years for the Doctoral course. However there are ways to complete the Master's course in one year and the Doctoral course in two years, or to complete the Master's course in two years and the Doctoral course in one year or more, allowing exceptional students a way to extend their abilities without waiting. By taking the school's shortest course, it is possible to obtain a Doctoral degree at the age of 24.
At present, at least 87% of the students in the Osaka University School of Engineering advance to graduate school, Where they acquire more advanced knowledge and engage in dynamic and creative research activities. Many graduate school students are active in presenting at and attending international conferences.
