Fostering human resources who can learn from and contribute to the world

Since its establishment in 1927, Shibaura Institute of Technology has pursued its founding mission of fostering practice-oriented engineers who can learn from and contribute to society, and worked to cultivate science and engineering talent to support Japan’s economy.
In 2014, the university was selected for the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s Top Global University Project, which provides prioritized support for universities to advance internationalization through partnerships with universities outside Japan and the pursuit of world-class education and research. SIT was one of just 37 out of the 781 universities in Japan to be selected under the project. We aim to provide a truly unique learning environment designed to foster "human resources who can learn from and contribute to the world."

Educational Philosophy of the College of Engineering and Design *Scheduled for re-organization in April, 2017

The goal of the College of Engineering and Design is to cultivate individuals with skills of creativity in manufacturing that appeals to human sensibilities, informed by a background in engineering knowledge and techniques. We also foster the kind of expertise across multiple fields that is in demand in the industrial sector, as demonstrated, for example, by the need for knowledge and skills in electrical, mechanical, electronic, and information engineering in the field of robot development.
The College has two academic clusters organized around the keyword of "design." One of our additional goals is use education that integrates these two clusters in order to cultivate design capabilities from a broad range of social and industrial perspectives. We aim to produce engineers with applied and analytical abilities that extend beyond pure knowledge, as well as those who can comprehend and give practical shape to creative manufacturing from a consumer’s or user’s perspective.

Learning Content and Curriculum of the College of Engineering and Design

In today’s society, it is crucial to re-assess and formulate manufacturing from a consumer’s perspective. What is required is design capability that generates a “worldview” of the product as a whole, rather than simply the technical elements of each component. In this context, engineers at the front lines of manufacturing are required to develop a combination of design capabilities including creative, schematic, conceptual, and planning skills. It its two academic clusters, the College of Engineering and Design strives for compelling manufacturing approaches that inspire people.
In addition to the specialized courses offered in each cluster, we operate a common curriculum with a variety of distinctive offerings including courses designed to cultivate perception such as theories of form, color, and design history, and courses that connect technology and people, such as human engineering, behavioral science, and cognitive psychology. We make the most of our central city campus location in order to deliver practice-oriented education including experiences such as internships and projects in cooperation with manufacturing firms.

The incremental curricular structure outlined below is designed to strengthen students’ foundational knowledge and deepen their specialist abilities in their preferred directions.

First Year:
Learn the approaches that form the basis of design engineering, and discover your aptitudes in the course of a range of practical exercises.
Second Year:
Study common specialized knowledge in your cluster, and develop fundamental skills through practical exercises.
Third Year:
Acquire specialized knowledge and cultivate integrated practical skills through studies centered on practical training, exercises, and experiments.
Fourth Year:
Pursue your graduation research within a research laboratory.
