The educational mission of this faculty is to train engineers who can develop and utilize the products of engineering to create a better environment for both human society and the natural world. To achieve that mission, the faculty provides students with deep expert knowledge as well as broad-based general education, to permit them to make autonomous, practical contributions to society.
This department nurtures the engineers and researchers who support manufacturing. A fundamental discipline of engineering, mechanical engineering covers a broad range of fields including environment/energy, automobile/aircraft, simulation, new materials, welfare/medicine, and robots. Students in the department acquire the ability to apply physical and mathematical knowledge to mechanically-related phenomena, to improve performance or develop new functions.
This department develops engineers equipped with the fundamental scholarship to engage with new technologies in electrical, electronics, and information fields on an ongoing basis. Students develop the capacity to integrate multiple fields, including electrical/electronic technologies, electrical/information technologies, and electronic/information technologies, and to develop and apply the latest technologies to innovative production.
This department fosters individuals who can tackle contemporary social issues such as energy, the environment, and medical care, drawing on a foundation of chemical technologies. The curriculum consists of three fields of Materials and Nanoscience, Biochemistry, and Environment and Energy Chemistry, and that covers the broad range of chemistry from life phenomena to artificial materials. Fields of research include catalysts, pharmaceuticals, fuel cells, and new materials, and so on.
This department offers educational and research programs aimed at the creation of advanced information systems that connect people with society and industry and that meet the needs of people today. Students are trained to acquire a broad base of knowledge that complements basic science with general education and the fundamentals of leading-edge technologies. The department nurtures information system developers and researchers who are equipped with a combination of mathematical education and system development abilities, backed by capabilities for thinking and expression.
This department trains managing engineers who engage in the design, operation, and improvement of work mechanisms extending from process design through logistics to service delivery. The curriculum is built on traditional the fields of quality, cost, production management, and ergonomics, with the addition of contemporary subjects such as automation, environmental management, computer-aided design, and Taguchi Methods. Distinctive features of the curriculum include an emphasis on laboratory training using an extensive range of apparatus, the inclusion of Technical Communication in English, Technical communication in Chinese, and field study of foreign languages as specialized subjects in preparation for globalization, and the use of ERP systems (made by SAP), which are indispensable for the running of modern-day corporations. Through these, the department works to develop practical capabilities.
This department teaches architectural technologies for creating ideal relationships between people, space, and the environment. It trains experts in a wide range of architectural fields, including conceptual design, structural design, equipment design, design supervision, and construction management. The department offers three courses: the Building Environment Course, which focuses on the science and engineering aspects of the environment and facilities; the Building Structure Course, which focuses on structural theories and disaster readiness; and the Architectural Design Course, which focuses on history and design in architecture and cities.
Contemporary science and technology are combining and fusing as they develop, making the creation of necessary products and systems increasingly difficult for an expert in one field alone. There is a need for engineers who are capable of addressing the growing complexity and diversity of lifestyle and social demands, and who can aptly combine numerous technologies to meet those demands—namely, “engineering generalists.” The Coordinated Engineering Program is a new educational system to foster these engineering generalists.
