Department of Mechanical Engineering

What kind of manufacturing will sustain the 21st century? We merge hardware and software expertise to increase possibilities for the future.

The Department aims to envisage "mechanical engineering for creating the future." By building on the foundation of mechanical engineering with a central focus on hardware, and by combining this with software technology, we promote our own original type of engineering with the goal of manufacturing things that will enrich peoples' lives. At the core of this is our great mission to realize "the co-existence of human beings and society with nature." Creativity and the capacity for imagination are absolutely necessary for conducting the kind of manufacturing that the 21st century society seeks, which is our ultimate mission.
The Department has prepared a curriculum that emphasizes real experience, where students study while experiencing the joy of planning and creating on their own, so that each student can obtain the abovementioned type of abilities. First year students take an entry-level course in experiential training, so that they can experience the joy of creating familiar objects. In their second and third years, students conduct laboratory work through a program that is unique to our Department. Before their fourth year, students join a research laboratory of their choice, and under the instruction of faculty members who are active in the most advanced areas of research, they will come close to reaching the heart of mechanical engineering.
