Departments prior to fiscal year 2016

Regular Course

Department of Mechanical and Systems Engineering

This department is designed to educate students to become engineers who can keep pace with the rapid development in technology and can meet the needs of society.

The three main aims of this department are as follows: (1) to equip students with a firm basis for their professional studies; (2) to train students in electrical and information processing programs; (3) to provide instruction in the liberal arts.

The students develop their ability to competently apply their technological knowledge to their own research and to industrial problems in the future. Full attention is paid to acquiring a wide range of mechanical techniques through workshops and experiments in mechanical and electrical engineering.

Japanese mechanical engineers have made great efforts to acquire a good knowledge of electric theory, electronics and information processing as well as traditional fields, which has led to the fact that our industrial products have been very competitive in worldwide markets.
The staff strongly hopes that our students will be active, energetic and creative all around the world.

Department of Electronics and Control Engineering

Remarkable progress in electronic technology in recent years has made computer use widespread and has promoted the manufacturing of electronic products, both of which have resulted in a big change in industry. Now in place of decisions made by experts’ experience and intuition are products featuring built-in microcomputers as well as information progressing and control systems. Also, in order to maintain consistency of quality, lower production costs, and labor rationalization, production lines have become highly automated. These technological innovations are the result of the combined technology in various fields such as electronic circuits, control systems, and information processing technologies.

This department is designed to provide students with courses that prepare them to become engineers who can cope with such technological innovations. To accomplish this, three major courses are offered: (1) Mechanical Engineering; (2) Electronics; and (3) Computer Engineering. The major emphasis is placed on the study of core subjects and the relationship among the professional subjects is also stressed. Furthermore, many hours are allocated to laboratory work, workshop practice, and machine design and drawing. Through these practical exercises, this department aims to help students to understand theory clearly.

Department of Electrical and Electronic System Engineering

Electrical engineering involves the areas of electronics, information processing, control engineering and electronic power engineering. These technologies have contributed to the rapid development of our society and there is a growing demand in every industry for electrical and electronic engineers.

In this department students will study major subjects in depth, and are expected to become engineers who can meet the demands of society with their broad range of knowledge, covering everything from electronics to energy.
The key features of this department are the following:

  1. Students will study advanced technologies such as biological, and environmental engineering, as well as electronics, information processing, control engineering and electric power engineering.
  2. There are a lot of elective courses for 4th and 5th year students to meet their various demands.
  3. Students can take courses necessary to become a licensed engineer (The Second or Third Class Electric Chief Engineer specified by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry).

Manufacturing of Blue-Ray Disk

Manufacturing of Electric Vehicle

Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering

Enabling students to study a broad range of new technologies, The Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering offers various elective courses from the following two major fields:

  1. Electric Engineering and Electronics: technologies associated with optical communication networks and high-performance electronic devices
  2. Information Technology: technologies associated with computer engineering

Students in 4th and 5th year have the opportunity to develop their professional skills through various experiments and the courses above.

Students in 5th year are required to accomplish a graduation thesis through a research project. We also offer courses enabling students to gain knowledge on radio use necessary to be qualified as a Second-Class Technical Radio Operator for On-the-Ground Services or a Maritime Second-Class Radio Operator by Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.

Fundamentals of Programming

Department of Chemistry and Material Engineering

We have been faced by serious problems including environmental disruption, the energy crisis and global warming, overpopulation, and so on. The Department of Chemistry and Material Engineering aims to educate students to be chemical engineers who can invent new chemical materials and technology to overcome those difficulties. The department provides an effective and systematic education, whose curriculum consists of life science, material science and computer science classes. All the students in the department start with introductory courses and then go to advanced classes. The students in their fourth year can choose either the analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry course, or the chemical engineering course. In their final year, students are required not only to give presentations of their own research in English but also to submit the graduation theses. Some of the submitted theses are also presented at various (inter) national conferences of learned societies. After graduation, several students in the department enter universities as third-year students.
