Mechanical and Intellectual Systems Engineering Mechanical and Intellectual Systems Engineering


We offer distinctive education programs aiming to cultivate human resources who have the abilities to contribute to the development of monodzukuri and comprehensive knowledge of machinery in general. The advanced research aiming at the fusion of machine, control technology, and information process is promoted in the following fields; (1) Studies of machine and structure about design production, studies of the material and processing technique, (2) Studies on the clarification of heat and fluid phenomena and its utilization which lead to the solution of energy and environmental problem, (3) Studies on the measurement and the simulation using a robot, supersonic wave, and light. The education and the study of our department corresponding to social needs are authorized to be in the international standard by Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE).
