Education towards engineers and researchers with creativity and capability

Mechanical engineering contributes to wide variety of technologies such as robotics, low-emission vehicle, prime mover, production machine, micro-machinery, bionics and so forth. It also contributes to solving problems relevant to global and human-related issues such as global environment, energy and welfare. Therefore the studies in the Department of Mechanical Engineering cover all fields relating to the design and the development of conventional machines and the creation of future machines which make our lives safer and comfortable.

The aim of our education is to cultivate the engineers and researchers with creativity and capability. Educational programs are arranged from basics of engineering to advanced courses in engineering. We also place strength on the exercises of designing machines and the planning and practicing experiments. Our department has two courses; Mechanical Engineering Course and Applied Mechanical Engineering Course. Students select one of these courses at the beginning of the 3rd year. Students in the 4th year carry out research work for their graduation theses to obtain a bachelor’s degree in their chosen favorite research field under the guidance of the faculty staffs. Many of the undergraduate students from abroad proceeded to the graduate school and continued their studies.

Mechanical Engineering Course;
This course is for the students wishing for becoming engineers and researchers with broad and balanced knowledge and skills in the field of mechanical engineering. The educational program of this course is accredited by JABEE, Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education that is an official member of the internationally recognized “Washington Accord”.

Applied Mechanical Engineering Course;
This course is for the students wishing for becoming engineers not only in the field of mechanical engineering but also in other related fields. The students in this course can select many lectures in their favorite subjects not only from our department but also from other departments and/or other schools.
