Department of Industrial Engineering
In fiscal year 2017 the National Institute of Technology, Ibaraki College integrated five departments into one, Department of Industrial Engineering.
We have four major courses specializing in engineering (Mechanical and Control Engineering Course, Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course, Computer Science Course, Chemistry, Bioengineering and Environmental Science Course) to foster creative engineers capable of responding to the demands of the region and society. Students will be assigned to majors in the second year after learning common subjects in their first year.
Students will deepen their cross-cultural understanding together with their special knowledge, and acquire the ability to communicate that will enable them to work from various perspectives in collaboration with engineers from around the world. We will train global engineers who will master their ability to disseminate information and make a contribution to the world engaging in tasks on a global scale, working in collaboration with engineers from around the world.
In order to foster engineers who will always be able to challenge new fields, even after graduation, we have developed the complex ・ compound educational base for learning several fields, and established five sub-major courses (Mechanical and Control Engineering Course, Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course, Computer Science Course, Chemistry, Bioengineering and Environmental Science Course, and Global Course).
Mechanical and Control Engineering Course
In recent years， technologies in the fields of engineering, such as Computer Communication Technology and artificial intelligence have become an indispensable element for mechanical products. At Mechanical and Control Engineering Course we foster engineers specialized in Machinery and Control who will be able to work in a wide range of fields from development of next generation intelligent Machines and Mechanical Systems to their production.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course
Technologies deeply related to Electric and Electronic Engineering, such as Electronics, Information, Control and Electric Power have greatly contributed to the remarkable development of Modern Society. Expectations for Electric and Electronic Engineers who have played a central role in this process have been growing increasingly in all industries. At the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Course, we are trying to enhance basic professional abilities in order to foster engineers who would be able to respond to a wide range of social demands from electronics to energy. The special feature of the course are：
(１) The curriculum is arranged to respond to cutting-edge technologies of Electronic, Information, Electronic Control, Power and Energy Engineering.
(２) In order to encourage autonomy in students and increase their creativity, we have introduced active learning from lower grade levels conducting seminar lessons and experiments in small groups.
(３) Subjects necessary to apply for a certificate of the Second Class and Third Class Qualified Electrical Engineer, the On-The-Ground II-Category Special Radio Operator and Maritime II-Category Special Radio Operator are offered.
Computer Science Course
Computer and the Internet are essential for our daily life and especially services based on Internet of Things, connecting familiar things to the Internet, and practical technology for using big data are in the spot light recently.
In this course, students study various topics from fundamentals to application in Computer Science, including specialized knowledge and techniques of computer software, computer hardware, computer network and information security. Also they are educated as future engineers to create cutting-edge services and systems and lead highly a networked information society.

AR and Depth Sensing Devices
Chemistry, Bioengineering and Environmental Science Course
We are currently facing problems, such as environmental destruction, energy, global warming, population increase, etc. In order to solve these problems, we need to develop new functional materials and create earth friendly chemical technologies and new technologies for sustainable growth. In order to respond to demands of such an era, this course, in which bio-resource studies and environmental studies have been added to the field of applied chemistry, aims at fostering technologists who would be full of flexible thought and creativity based on the results of training in the combined fields, and, moreover, would be rich in humanity.
At this course we focused on small group seminars and basic subjects. The subjects are arranged so as it would be easy to combine them with major professional subjects. In addition, the content of education after the fourth grade is prepared so as students, based on the subjects related to chemistry that they already studied, would be able to learn more in the field that matches the direction of their choice, such as applied chemistry, Material Engineering, Bio-resource Engineering, Environmental Conservation Engineering, etc.
Moreover, we enhance the abilities of our students as researchers and engineers through experiments, practice and graduate research, and foster the next generation that will be able to work in the industries that would grow applying new technologies and developing new products.
Organic Chemistry Experiments
Department of Systems Engineering
The Advanced Course, established in 2001, provides an additional 2-year advanced degree of technology education based on the 5-year regular course. It aims at educating students to be creative and practical engineers who have technical skills and knowledge required for research and development and are thereby able to develop leading-edge systems on the global stage.
The bachelor degree is obtained by earning required credits in the advance course in addition to the credits earned during the regular course, and passing the examination of the National Institution for Academic Degrees and University Evaluation. The graduates are, therefore, qualified to apply to postgraduate courses in other universities.
The Course consists of four special advanced courses: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Information Engineering and Applied Chemistry.
Mechanical Engineering Course
The course aims at cultivating the students to be creative and practical engineers with the skills in mechanical engineering and related fields. The course provides the students with opportunities to study the leading-edge technology of their own research fields and future fields which are formed by uniting such fields as mechanical engineering, control engineering and electronic engineering.
