Educational Philosophy of the College of Engineering

Guided by its mission to develop innovative individuals with the basic academic intellect to contribute to society, the College of Engineering has sought to address the overemphasis on knowledge acquisition in conventional university education, and re-developed its teaching to be guided by the question of how rather than simply what to manufacture. The College’s educational policy is based on three stages as described below.
The first stage is to elucidate the purposes of applying engineering and technology in the various areas of the engineering discipline. This requires students to survey the significant breakthroughs and deficiencies in the history of humankind. The second stage is to address the question "why" in order to identify the different stages of social requirement, desire, and specific demand that call for engineering solutions. True professional engineers would not comply unconditionally with all demands: education in our College therefore equips students with insights that enable critical engagement, verification, and implementation. The third stage of our education involves studying the innovative aspects of the question, "how to manufacture?" with a view to fostering creativity.

Department of Mechanical Engineering
Features of the Department of Mechanical Engineering

This general field could be described as the foundations of engineering. Research covers the manufacturing of everything from cars and robots to equipment used in the energy, aerospace, medical care and social welfare industries. Basic science is emphasized while making an effort to incorporate related engineering fields and to achieve harmony with people and society.

Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics
Features of the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics

This department pursues education and research with a basis in mechanical engineering for the purpose of conceiving and creating new functions that are in harmony with people and the environment. Research is conducted across five fields spanning engineering, science, and medicine: energy and the environment, materials sciences, mechanical controls, manufacturing and processing processes, and applied micro- and nano-technologies

Department of Materials Science and Engineering
Features of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering

This department conducts highly creative research on themes such as highly functional materials, materials for use in space environments, nanomaterials and condensed matter physics, and advanced materials. All sorts of materials are handled, including metals, ceramics, organic materials, and composite materials.

Department of Applied Chemistry
Features of the Department of Applied Chemistry

There are needs for applied chemistry in a number of different industry sectors, including materials for electronic devices, medicines, food products, agriculture, environmental sanitation, and effective use of resources. Students learn through lectures and experiments in a wide range of fields, including inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, chemical engineering, analytical chemistry, and biochemistry.

Department of Electrical Engineering
Features of the Department of Electrical Engineering

Students in this department pursue studies across a wide spectrum of fields related to electrical technology, with energy and controls as the core subjects. Research is directed to industries that are becoming more advanced and high-tech, and covers the fields of electricity and energy, system controls and robotics, and electrical materials and devices.

Department of Electronic Engineering
Features of the Department of Electronic Engineering

Electronic engineering is widely used in the infrastructure of modern society. The Department of Electronic Engineering offers educational programs in conformance with the Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE) in two specialized fields of study: materials and devices, and intelligent information processing circuits. These programs are designed to develop students’ capacity to respond to continuing advances in electronics in line with changes in industry and wider society.

Department of Communications Engineering
Features of the Department of Communications Engineering

Studies involve a good balance of both hardware and software related to the various ways to convey information using communications network technologies, electronics, mobile wireless communications technologies, photonics, and information processing technologies (technology related to computers).

Department of Information Science and Engineering
Features of the Department of Information Science and Engineering

Students in this department undertake systematic studies of fundamentals and applications in the fields of software, hardware, databases/networks, and human communications technologies, acquiring an understanding of the fundamental principles underpinning technology, and cultivating their creativity and ability to develop and find applications for technology.

Department of Civil Engineering
Features of the Department of Civil Engineering

The aim of civil engineering is to create an enriched and civilized society in which humans coexist in harmony with nature. The educational mission of the Department of Civil Engineering is to foster human resources capable of creating social infrastructure systems that incorporate social science perspectives. The study of civil engineering is approached from a broad perspective as an integrated system, and students are trained to be civil engineering professionals with all-round knowledge and a sense of balance.
