Graduate Major

Creating systems of

System control, used to measure, analyze, and control various phenomena, is essential in many areas in modern society including in industry. In the Department of Systems and Control Engineering we develop the fundamental ability for modeling, analyzing, developing, and designing systems that are crucial for future nation-building such as highly functional robots, next-generation vehicles, and clean energy.


Creativity built on expertise
in systems

In the Master's Program, students develop the ability to objectively analyze everything — concrete and abstract — in nature and society as a system, and to create systems of value based on this knowledge. In other words, we develop individuals equipped with advanced knowledge in measurement, control, design, and system science, together with innovativeness, creativity, and executive ability to boldly apply this knowledge to new problems and tasks.

In the Doctoral Program, we aim to develop (1) leaders with academic and practical ability who are capable of discovering their own research tasks in relation to actual problems together with the ability to carry out research from a sophisticated systems perspective, (2) individuals who have the ability to globally understand and systemize trends related to research and development from a sophisticated systems perspective, and (3) individuals who are capable of contributing their research achievements back to society by making new creative proposals freely utilizing their special knowledge of system control.
