The problems facing society today go beyond the boundaries of any single discipline. Approaches to solving these problems are formulated by connecting a variety of different factors derived from social life, informed by a clear outlook on the future. Shibaura Institute of Technology founded the College of Systems Engineering in 1991 with a new vision differentiated from analysis-based engineering. In 2009, with the introduction of the physical sciences field, the college was renamed the College of Systems Engineering and Science. The College employs an inter-disciplinary approach to systems engineering methodologies, pursuing education and research guided by the concepts of “Systems Thinking” that pursues comprehensive solutions to problems; “Systems Techniques” that create functions to achieve objectives; and “Systems Management” that links humans, knowledge, and technology with a focus on problem solving. The ultimate vision of the College is to nurture competent individuals who can meet the needs of the new era and contribute to the development of their communities and human society as a whole.
Research on medical and welfare devices
This department welcomes students who aspire to be 21st-century engineers capable of envisioning the systems and innovations needed to create an advanced information society worldwide. Students acquire specialized expertise in a wide range of fields, including software, media and networks, and hardware, as well as practical systems approaches and sensibilities through hands-on experiments and exercises.
Mechanical control systems for high performance robots, next generation vehicles, clean energy power sources, and other technologies that sustain modern society will be indispensable to nation-building from here on. Students in this department study the basics for conducting analysis, development, design, and manufacturing of such mechanical control systems, together with principles and theories for the optimization of systems as a whole (systems engineering), employing a broad perspective that encompasses people, the environment, and society.
Through a focus on the facilities and residences around us, as well as communities, regions, countries, and the global “environment” as a whole, students in this department learn to view human activities such as architecture and urbanization as complete systems, to identify problems therein, and to formulate solutions to those problems. The curriculum equips students with both specialized skills and practical capabilities.
In the bioscience course, students acquire the basic specialized knowledge required to comprehend and formulate approaches to addressing the bioscience-related challenges that will confront society in the near future, such as aging and environmental degradation. Research efforts are tailored to the needs of contemporary society with a view to enabling everyone to lead fulfilling lives. Research themes include, for example, seeking out the causes of dementia and developing means of preventing it, and formulating methods for breaking down environmental pollutants using microorganisms.
With a basis in mechatronics combining mechanical engineering with electrical and electronic engineering, the Biomedical Engineering Course involves studies related to the development of and manufacturing methods for robots that provide support in welfare and medical care, devices used in rehabilitation, artificial organs, and other equipment for life support and recovery of functions, as well as various devices and support systems to help older people lead healthy lives.
Mathematical science methodologies are effective in resolving the ever more complex issues of the real world. With this in mind, we first train students to acquire a firm understanding of the fundamentals of mathematics, then equip them with applied skills such as simulation technologies and other methods focused on specific issues, in order to prepare them for active roles in a wide range of scientific and engineering fields.
