Mathematics and Science for Engineering Program
Educational Objectives

In order to improve their basic academic skills, which are necessary for "engineers who think and act for themselves," and proceed smoothly to professional fields of study, students learn basic science and mathematics (mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology) and their applications in engineering, science and informatics. Thus, students learn how to use their knowledge, think, reason and create. Also, they learn to be proactive, willing students by studying in advance and reviewing what they have been taught. We help them improve their self-study and self-management skills.

Educational Objectives of Subjects

Mathematics and Science for Engineering

Students learn how to deal with geometric objects by means of algebraic operations  such as calculation of vectors and matrices, and finding solutions to simultaneous linear equations and determinants, in order to understand and express figures on planes and in space. (These subjects are intended for students of all colleges.)

Subjects

[1st year:1st term (first semester)]
Linear Algebra I
[1st year: 2nd term (second semester)]
Linear Algebra II

Students learn basic mathematics and science (mathematics, physics) and their application to engineering (mechanical engineering, electrical engineering), and improve their ability to think, reason and create. They also improve their ability to study autonomously before and after classes and manage their time. (These subjects are intended for students of the College of Engineering.)
