The first and 2nd grade students don’t receive only specialized subjects including experiments and practical training provided by each department, but also general academic subjects that are common to all departments (mathematics, physics, chemistry, Japanese, English, etc.).
The purpose of general academic subjects is to provide students with basic knowledge and to broaden their perspectives, which will be necessary for them to become successful members of society as well as successful engineers. The purpose of the specialized subjects is to give students an opportunity to make a first step towards becoming engineers.
The 3rd grade students can receive professional education. The students not only learn theories and skills in their specialized fields but they also develop the potential to apply the knowledge and evaluate results. The 4th and 5th grade students must develop their capability to discover new findings at various points of engineering development. Important subjects such as advanced engineering experiments, creative engineering, and graduation research are designed for them.
Mechanical engineering has strongly supported "Manufacturing". Manufacturing is the foundation of every industry. Students learn computer-aided design technology and processing technology. They also make robots representing mechatronics.
We are aiming to train engineers with good common sense and practical ability, who can respond to requests from a wide range of industries. After having learned the basic theory of electrical engineering, students will learn about the wide range of application technology, including hardware and software systems. Graduate students can also get the license of "The 2nd Class Electric Works Specialist" after the provision work experience.
Through the study of electronic engineering, information engineering, electronic control, and the integration of those technologies, students train to be "next-generation" engineers who are skilled at both electronics and computers, and who play active roles in the electro-computerized society.
This department comprises the Applied Chemistry Course, in which industrial chemistry is the main focus, and the Biochemistry Course, in which biotechnology is the main focus. In both courses, students learn the latest theories in chemistry and environment preservation technology, as well as the knowledge and skills of traditional chemistry related to plastics, synthetic fabrics, medicine, and food.
The development of new materials has significantly contributed to the growth of the most advanced industrial fields, such as electronics, energy, aerospace and the environment. Students learn about basic theories through applied technology of materials (metal, ceramics, plastic etc.) that are indispensable to "manufacturing."
