Curriculum

Educational Objectives for Graduate Schools/Programs

There are three graduate schools (Engineering, Psychology and Innovation Management) with 11 Programs (First/Second Doctoral Courses: 8 programs, Master's Courses: 3 programs), in which we nurture professionals who possess advanced knowledge and abilities and researchers who possess rich creativity and excellent research and development skills. The learning objectives for each graduate school and program are shown below.

School/Program Objectives
Graduate School of Engineering

The Graduate School of Engineering aims to develop engineers with advanced expertise and researchers with rich creativity who possess analytical and practical skills related to various fields of engineering.

Mechanical Engineering

In addition to high-level expertise and the ability to actively contribute to technological innovation in the mechanical field, both domestically and internationally, students acquire human strength and integration skills allowing for expansion into a wide range of engineering fields. This program nurtures researchers and engineers with high level mechanical expertise and human strength, who are capable of flourishing in advanced fields of study and in areas of research and development focused on mechanical engineering.

Detail

Civil and Environmental Engineering

In recent years in civil engineering, in addition to the preparation and maintenance of public infrastructure and disaster prevention, consideration towards environmental issues has also become essential. In this program, we aim to develop high-grade civil and environmental engineers and researchers who are able to evaluate appropriate maintenance management and effectiveness, and carry out the efficient planning, design and construction of domestic and international public infrastructure with environmental harmony in mind.  

Detail

Information and Computer Engineering

Students learn about basic technology related to information presentation, processing, storage and transmission, and the core technology related to computers, software and networks required for efficient data processing. This program aims to develop engineers and researchers with advanced expertise who can lead an advanced information society, by acquiring cutting edge knowledge and research and development skills related to information processing and information system construction, obtained through the application of the core technologies mentioned above.

Detail

Electrical Engineering and Electronics

Electrical engineering and electronics is an essential field of study that establishes the basis of the overall formation of a high-tech society in harmony with the global environment. This program includes research and development of new electricity technology concerning the cleanest and most easily managed type of energy. It aims to develop creative engineers and researchers with advanced expertise, who are capable of flourishing abroad.

Detail

System Design Engineering

This program combines the differing fields of information science and psychology, and develops students’ ability to solve problems from a well-rounded point of view. With the aim of developing engineers and researchers with advanced expertise, who are capable of creating things that are useful for people and society, students learn about technology that creates novel products, including information content, through fundamental and applied research for the creation of positive relationships between people and objects. 

Detail

Bioscience and Applied Chemistry

A new industrial field exceeding the framework of engineering is being created in the areas of applied biotechnology and applied chemistry, which form the foundations of life sciences, medical treatment, biotechnology and nanotechnology. This program aims to develop engineers and researchers with advanced expertise, excellent practical skills and the ability to apply knowledge, through the comprehensive acquisition of fundamental and professional knowledge in functional chemistry, environmental chemistry, bioengineering, life science etc.

Detail

Architecture

Through conducting research into a specialized area while studying across the broad range of fields within architecture (planning and design, city and regional planning, space construction, structural architecture, environmental and facility architecture), it is possible to acquire comprehensive and specialist knowledge at the same time. This program aims to develop high-grade construction engineers and researchers who are able to solve problems from a variety of perspectives, and contribute to the development of society.

Detail

Synthesized Engineering

This program aims to systematize industry-academic cooperation within the education system, and improve capability in the four technical fields specific to engineering: investigation and analysis, planning and drafting, verification and resolution, and development management. Through this, it aims to develop engineers and researchers with advanced expertise who are capable of project research and development from a broad perspective, as professional managers who practice "safe, reliable engineering".

Business Architecture

This program aims to develop highly-skilled professionals capable of ambitious, creative work based on a common foundation consisting of the standardization and improvement of complete optimization and knowledge creation related to multiple business processes such as sales, production, supply and finance, and management resources such as people, objects, funds, information and technology, while considering business development as a creative activity of social and economic value.

Detail

School/Program Objectives
Graduate School of Psychology

The Graduate School of Psychology aims to develop researchers and clinical psychologists who contribute to the preservation and promotion of people's mental health.

Clinical Psychology

Our graduate school was the first to be established by an engineering university in Japan, and as the first clinical psychology training institution in the Hokuriku area (Foundation of the Japanese Certification Board for Clinical Psychologists, Class 1 Designated Graduate School), we aim to develop scientifically grounded clinical psychologists who contribute to society. 

Detail

School/Program Objectives
Graduate School of Innovation Management

The Graduate School of Innovation Management aims to develop business managers with an understanding of intellectual property and intellectual property managers with an understanding of business management, who are capable of implementing genuine innovation, and contribute to the bolstering of Japan's competitive strength in international industry.

Innovation Management

In order to realize strong, sustainable innovation, the development of business models and business management that utilizes intellectual property, or the consulting skills required for these, are essential. For this reason, in this program we aim to produce business managers with an understanding of intellectual property and intellectual property managers with an understanding of business management, and aim to develop highly skilled professionals.
