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 the demand to switch to producing a wide variety of high-value-added products in small quantities. What is needed now is effective use of limited resources and energy, as well as advanced technological innovation that is harmonized with 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 three main technologies, namely, technologies in the fields of mechanical engineering, electric and electronic engineering, and information and computer science, as well as technologies that integrate all three.
Keywords: manufacturing, technology for resource/energy use, information infrastructure technology, technological innovation, integrated technology

Department Objectives
Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering forms the basis of industry. It is essential for the manufacturing of many products such as automobiles, home appliances, machining tools, energy machines, and welfare and medical equipment. There is an increasing demand in the field of mechanical engineering for energy saving, less environmental impact, and improvement of safety and reliability. We train our students to become mechanical engineers with basic knowledge, design and applied skills for manufacturing, knowledge of new materials and their processing methods, environmental and energy skills, and the ability to respond to social needs.

Keywords: environment, energy, design/processing, materials, automobile, integration of medicine and engineering



In the Japanese aircraft industry of the future, there will be greater demand for effective use of energy and advanced technological innovation harmonized with the global environment, as well as safety. We train our students to become engineers who have basic knowledge of aeronautics and applied skills related to aircrafts and their components, as well as integrated skills, and are able to play an active role in the transportation machinery industry, with flexibility and creativity.
