Engineering education of the past responded to “manufacturing” with an emphasis on function. As a result, compartmentalization of the fields of education and research in engineering has progressed and a certain level of results has been achieved in each field. On the other hand, it is true that the traditional study system, which was vertically compartmentalized depending on subjects, was not capable of handling such fields as the automotive or IT industries, where comprehensive knowledge and technologies of machinery, electricity, information, management and others are required.

In the Faculty of Science and Engineering, which makes a new start from the school year of 2008, students will be able to study subjects across departments according to their concerns and needs. We aim at fostering generalist engineers with broader knowledge and technologies while possessing solid basic knowledge of science and engineering.

The primary characteristics are as follows:

 1. cross and inter-disciplinary education system through course settings
 2. basic experimentation to experience and be impressed by natural laws
 3. curriculum to make contact with leading-edge technologies
 4. participatory lectures with problems-solution approach
 5. cultural studies for improvement of creativity
 6. emphasis on practice and introduction of the tutor system in basic subjects in the natural science group.



Cross curricula that go beyond specialized areas are organized for the following six courses to foster creative engineers with the communicative ability that is indispensable to manufacturing.

 ● Human Robotics Course
 ● Materials Processing Course
 ● Environment and Energy Course
 ● Aerospace Course
 ● Materials Property and Strength Course
 ● Digital Engineering Course



As demonstrated by recent achievements of Japan’ s advanced technology, science and technology in Japan has made huge leaps. In the past, we learned a great deal from the United States and European countries to develop science and technology. Today, however, the technical fields in which Japan is taking the leading role in the world are increasing. So there are increasing expectations from the industrial world in Japan as well as in foreign countries for developing outstanding engineers and researchers with creative abilities.

To respond to these social needs, we provide majors in such fields as mechanical engineering, materials chemistry, electrical engineering, information electronics engineering, civil engineering and architecture, and system engineering. Education and technical guidance are offered with the primary objective to produce engineers and researchers who can contribute the future development of technology and science.


Program Outline


Mechanical engineering plays a major role as the foundation that sustains all of industry, and, accompanied by recent remarkable technological innovations, including fields that are newly in the process of development, the contents of mechanical engineering have become increasingly intense. In the Master’s Degree Program, while regarding as fundamental the basic fields of study that form the underpinnings of mechanical engineering--material mechanics, machine dynamics, hydrodynamics, and thermodynamics--in the forty years since our founding, we have expanded into lubrication, mechatronics, noise control, ignition, turbine machinery, new materials and environments, and have made efforts to foster mechanical engineers equipped with high practical skills, and striven to build up our organization and facilities.
At present, there are six research sections, solid mechanics, material science, machine elements, fluid mechanics, thermomechanics and machine dynamics.
Additionally, through the intensification and diversification of the contents of recent mechanical engineering, in response to demand on this field of specialization for fostering researchers with higher knowledge and skills in specialized fields, we possess A Doctoral Degree Program as well. The program subject matter is an attempt to enrich the graduate school with the capability to deal with fostering successors and internationalization of research.
