Education & Research
Educational Objectives of the College of Engineering and its Departments
The manufacturing industry has supported the growth and development of society, and is now faced with a demand to switch to producing a wide variety of high-value-added products in small quantities. What is required now is the effective use of limited resources and energy for establishing a sustainable society, as well as advanced technological innovation that is harmonized with the global environment, based on the secure infrastructure of technology and information. We produce creative human resources who have fundamental academic and applied skills, and a global perspective. They are able to develop the four main technologies; technologies in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, information and computer science and civil engineering, as well as technologies that integrate all these technologies.
Mechanical engineering forms the basis of industry, which manufactures many products such as automobiles, home appliances, machining tools, energy machines, and welfare and medical equipment. There is increasing demand for energy saving, reduced environmental impact, and the improvement of safety and reliability. We produce human resources who have basic knowledge in mechanical engineering, design and applied skills for manufacturing using digital tools, knowledge of new materials and their processing methods, environmental and energy skills, and the ability to respond to social needs.
In the Japanese aircraft industry of the future, there will be a greater demand for the effective use of energy and advanced technological innovation harmonized with the global environment, as well as safety. We produce human resources who have basic knowledge of aeronautics and applied skills related to aircrafts and their components, as well as integrated skills, and who are able to play an active role in the transportation machinery industry.
In order to respond to changes in social situations flexibly and develop new robots and intellectual equipment, it is necessary to be well-informed on their hardware and software, and to understand integrated systems. We will produce inter-disciplinary human resources who possess basic knowledge and skills related to robot design, sensing, system control and intelligent information systems, and who can integrate their knowledge and skills comprehensively with a broad perspective.
|Electrical and Electronic Engineering||
Students acquire basic knowledge regarding electric circuits, electromagnetism and electronic circuits etc., and learn how to apply it to specific problems through physical and mathematical reasoning. They obtain basic knowledge regarding electrical and electronic measurement and experiments, and computers and automatic control, developing the ability to actually perform control, measurement and analysis. In the electrical engineering course, students acquire basic knowledge related to electric energy and control technology, and the materials and devices that support this. In the electronic engineering course, students acquire basic knowledge related to electronics engineering, information transmission, acoustics and images using electronic engineering. We foster the ability to propose and find solutions for new challenges in the fields of electrical and electronic engineering. We produce engineers who are capable of technical discussion with other engineers of varying age, who have Japanese virtues and engineering ethics, while also possessing an interest in fields outside of their specialty, allowing them to take on challenges with creativity.
|Information and Computer Science||
Information technology, network technology and their applications are essential for the innovation of technology and management in industry. Moreover, they have contributed to societal changes with their wide range of possibilities. We produce human resources who have basic skills in information engineering, and expertise including applied skills such as in integrated systems and relevant solutions and services so that they will be able to contribute to society.
|Civil and Environmental Engineering||
It is necessary to create comfortable environments that are in harmony with regional nature and culture, as well as being safe, secure, healthy and sustainable, while preventing intensified natural disasters. We carry out research and field work in the Hokuriku region, which is blessed with mountains, hills, plains and the sea. Students learn about the development of regional infrastructure such as roads, railroads, energy and ports using next-generation civil engineering combined with ICT, as well as the establishment of environments harmonized with regional nature and culture. We produce human resources who will play an important role in planning, design, engineering, maintenance and operation in international development projects in the future.
